Emily Bailey will be our nutritional educator for our first Wednesday, April 2nd. Here is a little bit about her:
Emily has been a registered and licensed dietician since 2003, and completed her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics and a Dietetics Internship at Saint Louis University. She is dually certified as a personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and has spent the past ten years as the manager and Director of Nutrition at NutriFormance and Athletic Republic, LLC in St. Louis. Emily also holds a membership to the Sports Cardiovascular and Wellness Nutrition Practice Group and the Collegiate and Professional Sports Dietitians Association. Outside of work, Emily can be found practicing what she preaches, enjoying a run. She recently completed the GO! St. Louis half marathon and the Marine Corps Marathon. She grew up as a competitive dancer and wishes that she had the knowledge of "train to eat, just as you train to compete" back then. Emily believes that all foods fit in a healthy and active lifestyle. She strives to educate all athletes to fuel for their performance. She also works with eating disorders/disordered eating and weight management. It is her personal goal to eradicate negative body image one person at a time!
For #WineDownWednesday Emily will speak towards "Truth or Diet"
after Kim Walli's 30 minute Sleek Class on April 2, 2014.
