Angie works one-on-one with clients at her nutrition practice, Carpe Diem Nutrition, in Hershey, PA. Areas of expertise include Sports Nutrition, Digestive Health, and Intuitive Eating. She enjoys helping athletes optimize their performance with nutrition, and has seen the benefits in every level of athlete from youth, up to the ultra endurance level. She has been a Nutrition Staff member at Diabetes Training Camp since 2012 and is inspired by working with athletes living with Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.
Angie believes in the power of food as medicine and loves working with clients on ways to use this important tool to improve their overall health. For her clients with digestive disorders such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Irritable Bowel Disease and Celiac Disease, this means finding foods and patterns of eating that assist with symptom management while ensuring nutritional adequacy of the diet prescription. For her clients exploring Intuitive Eating, this can mean working on letting go of old dieting rules and learning to trust the body’s own hunger and fullness cues.
Angie loves being a wife and mother of 3 active, funny and loving children, as well as one rambunctious dog. She has a passion for cooking and loves sharing simple, healthful and delicious recipes with her clients. She has always loved sports, and completed her first triathlon in 1999. She continues to compete in triathlons and half-marathons, and finished her first Half Ironman Triathlon in August of 2016.
Angie holds a Master’s Degree in Nutrition Science from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. Prior to starting her private practice, Angie worked as a Clinical Dietitian at the University of Chicago Hospitals. She also served as adjunct faculty at Loyola University in Chicago.
