Sydney Anderson began practicing as a dietitian in 2020 after completing her dual Master of Science/Dietetic Internship in Nutrition and Physical Performance from Saint Louis University and Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from Kent State University. She initially developed a strong interest in nutrition to optimize her own performance while playing NCAA Division I softball, but this evolved into a passion to help other athletes do the same. Beginning her career as a Sports Nutrition Assistant for the University of Louisville football team, Sydney gained valuable experience providing nutrition education and medical nutrition therapy to 100+ student-athletes with various food preferences, cultural and religious beliefs, and medical and performance needs at the highest college level. She eventually experienced a gradual shift toward intuitive eating and fostering an “all foods fit” model as she recovered from disordered eating and chronic depression. She is very passionate about mental health and helping others mend their relationship with food, find enjoyment in eating, and turn away from fad diets and restrictive eating practices to help them attain long-term results. Additionally, Sydney has great success facilitating weight and acute/chronic disease management by practicing medical nutrition therapy, utilizing motivational interviewing strategies, taking a personalized approach, and exhibiting empathy, compassion, and humor to create a welcoming atmosphere for clients. When she is not counseling clients, navigating the research, or studying to become a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics, you can find her at the CrossFit gym, eating pizza, or chasing her crazy dog Milo.
