Hi! My name is Nina and I'm a Performance Dietitian based out of San Diego, California but work with a wide variety of clientele across the country.
I grew up playing sports and have been an athlete my entire life. I played Division 1 water polo, and more recently competed nationally in both CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting. Competing as an athlete myself is where my love and passion for sports nutrition started. As a former athlete, I am able to relate to the clients I work with on a personal level and establish vital relationships to assist them in meeting their individual nutrition goals.
When I was in college, I didn't understand the importance my nutrition had on my performance, and boy did it show! I did not fuel properly and was constantly hungry, tired, and injured. I wasn’t able to be the athlete I knew I could be and I couldn’t figure out why...Does this sound like you??
Fast forward a few years, and two nutrition degrees later, I vowed as I became a dietitian to do everything I could to help my clients so they did not make the same mistakes I did. My goal is to teach YOU the importance proper nutrition has on your performance.
