Haley’s love for food began at a young age and has only continued to grow. As a little girl, she was always asking silly questions like, “Have we eaten lunch yet?” only an hour after the last meal. Then and now, she never wants to miss out on the next food experience. She jumped on the opportunity to turn her passion for food into a degree and then a career. Haley earned a B.S. in Nutrition from the University of Texas at Austin, where she also completed the requirements to become a Registered Dietitian.
Haley began her nutrition career as a Clinical Dietitian at St. David’s Medical Center, where she provided nutrition care for patients with a variety of disease states, including diabetes, heart disease and cancer. After a few years in the hospital setting, she entered the world of nutrition counseling at Pure Austin Fitness where she was able to combine her passions for food and exercise. She has excelled in this environment being named “Best Dietitian in Austin” two years in a row.
Haley cares about her clients and their results. This is not just a job, but a passion. She is a great motivator and accountability partner, and she wants to help her clients achieve results while eating foods they love. She doesn’t take any foods off the table, but rather teaches clients how to incorporate their favorite foods into a balanced diet. This approach increases compliance and promotes long-term sustainability.
She also loves to learn and teach. She openly admits that her favorite classes in college were Organic Chemistry and Anatomy & Physiology. Haley continues to learn through a variety of resources, including professional journals, food and health magazines, books and social media. She utilizes this knowledge daily while teaching clients topics as simple as which foods have carbohydrates to what are the long-term implications of chronic inflammation and how can the diet be the primary defense. Her thorough knowledge of nutrition topics enables her to teach clients using simple, accessible language.
Haley’s free time is spent outside whenever possible. She’s currently into functional strength training, but also loves to run and hike with her dog, Lola. She frequents many local restaurants, coffee shops and the occasional craft brewery. Haley loves the social aspect of food and exercise; you will often find her with a great friend or family member by her side.Get to know Haley a little better here:
