Hey there! i'm taylor,
I believe eating food should be just as delightful to your taste buds as it is to nourishing your body.
i believe in balance.
i believe healthy should taste delicious.
Can I just say, in my twenty-somethin’ journey, food has been everything. I am a Clinical Registered and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN, LDN) working in an ICU of the largest hospital in Washington, D.C. by day and a Food Photographer, Recipe Developer and founder of Roots Reboot LLC by night... with time to spare for long runs (bumpin’ Drake on repeat), eating out at only D.C.’s finest and socializing with some amazing friends of course.
My nutrition story dates back to being a UNCW Division I athlete where food at that time was mainly fuel for my next two-a day practice or weekend soccer game. After I quickly discovered I could major in food (aka dietetics) I was completely sold. I transferred to Virginia Tech and never looked back.
Through college, my perceived notions of food changed to really understanding the medicinal capabilities it has on the human body. After graduating, I remained loyal to my forever love of food and knew all I wanted to do was help make people feel their best and optimize their health to its greatest potential while enjoying every bite along the way.
I now work in one of the most renowned hospitals in D.C. and have learned the ins and outs of clinical therapeutic diets for hospitalized acute care patients. Although I appreciate and value the foundation of nutrition education the clinical setting, my heart has always been in preventative nutrition and lifestyle change. My nutrition story is only getting started and Roots Reboot is the authentic platform I was always searching for.
So that's me -
a girl in love with food,
excited to help you get to the ROOT of your health and REBOOT your life.
