Meet Shauna Hill

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

I am a registered dietitian nutritionist, committed to helping individuals and communities explore their journeys to wellness and meet their wellness goals. Two years ago, I also trained to be a Master Gardener through Michigan State University. I've loved plants for as long as I can remember, but only in the past two years have I devoted significant time to understanding and cultivating plants. My favorite plant life to work with are herbs which I incorporate into meals and use to boost my own health and that of my family.

My wellness philosophy:​

Twenty years ago, when I began working with patients and clients, I tried to match each person with a prescribed nutrition plan and this works beautifully for some people. Many, however, need an approach that goes beyond a list of foods they should eat. They need help figuring out how they’re going to eat healthy and exercise when money is tight, or there’s no time to prepare meals, or when fatigue threatens to completely overwhelm, or they just can’t get motivated. They may even need help figuring out what their wellness priorities are.

 

My approach helps you identify your current wellness priorities and then individualize a plan for reaching your goals.

I love spring everywhere, but if I could choose I would always greet it in a garden.
