Chelsea – RDN, LD, ACSM, AFAA/NSCA
I grew up in the metro-Detroit area and I’m a Michigan girl at heart. I live in Grand Rapids, MI with my boyfriend and our kitty, Zelda. When I’m not working with clients or being a crazy cat mom at home, I love writing, photography, trying new restaurants and breweries, and traveling. My most recent trip was to the Bahamas, but I’d love to go to Japan or Thailand next! My nutrition philosophy is that healthy eating does not have to be boring or extreme to get you results. Food is a powerful tool for improving your health and it should also be enjoyed!
