Sarah Tannen, RDN, CSOWM, LDN
Hi! I'm Sarah! I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with over a decade of professional nutrition practice and experience. I am passionate about creating healthy, sustainable, and attainable lifestyle changes around nutrition and wellness. I encourage an "all foods fit approach" and focus on all aspects of wellness, not just food. Nutrition is only one component of health and I help my clients reach their nutrition goals with a behavioral-based approach that focuses on flexible eating and habit-based teachings.
Throughout my professional career, I have experience in working with both pediatric and adult populations, including but not limited to weight management, weight loss, sports nutrition, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal diseases, oncology, burns, wound healing, autoimmune disorders, and renal disease.
I received my Bachelors of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics from Florida State University (Go Noles!). Post graduation, I completed a one year supervised Dietetic internship program from Emory University Hospitals in Atlanta, GA.
My professional career started at the University of Florida Health (Shands Hospital) where I was a Critical Care Dietitian for almost 8 years, working in the burn, plastic surgery, and ENT (head, neck, throat, oncology) intensive care unit. During this time, I began my private nutrition counseling business by partnering with a local gym to provide sports nutrition and wellness counseling as well as additional nutrition counseling within the community. I also gained valuable experience working in a private practice setting on evenings after my full-time clinical job.
Aside from working my growing virtual nutrition business - Nutrition With Sarah, I currently also work for a large and expanding Concierge Medical Practice providing nutrition counseling to their patients.
I hold a Certification in Obesity and Weight Management (CSOWM), Certification in Dietitian Nutrition Coaching (DNC), and a Certificate in Adult Weight Management. I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) under the credentialing board of Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) and a Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (LDN) in the state of Florida and Texas.
I was born in New Jersey but grew up most of my life in sunny, South Florida. I am currently living in Saint Petersburg, FL but see patients from all over the world. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. I am a Licensed Zumba Instructor. I encourage joyful movement. I love all things food PUNS.
Stay tuned for my corny food pun posts.
