My name is Tayler!
I am a Dietetic Technician Registered (DTR) and Dietetic Intern in Columbus, Ohio, with a passion for helping people with celiac disease find love for food and for themselves.
Through my services and this website, I hope to inspire people to explore their kitchens and provide resources that make navigating a gluten-free lifestyle better.
Why Nutrition & Dietetics?
I struggled with digestive issues for years but didn’t have any idea how to fix them. I sought after advice from doctors since I can remember and no one could give me concrete answers. Then I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease and my whole world flipped upside down.
After years of not considering my diet, my gut needed healing, so I dove straight into the gluten-free lifestyle. I became fascinated with learning about gut health and nutrition and ran my own fermented food business before deciding to become a Dietitian / Nutritionist in order to truly build a career in nutrition and dietetics.
My Nutrition Philosophy
I understand that celiac disease is NOT just a stomachache. That’s why my nutrition philosophy is focused on taking steps to help you enjoy your gluten-free lifestyle mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Overview of Current Experience:
I am a Dietetic Technician Registered (DTR) in Columbus with over 450 hours of supervised practice under my belt. My supervised practice was completed via the Dietetic Technician coordinated program at the Columbus State Community College and involved me working alongside Dietary Managers in surrounding high-schools, local long-term care facilities, and the OSU Wexner Medical Center. I am set to graduate from OSU in May 2020, and hopefully will sit for the RD exam sometime early next year in 2021!
Currently I am providing nutrition consulting services including but not limited to, gluten-free lifestyle coaching, supervised nutrition counseling, social media assistance (including management/content creation and sponsored posts), and more.
I have my Complementary Care Certificate from Columbus State Community College. I am passionate about healing and balancing the whole self. With nutrition being a form of complementary care, I thought it appropriate to be aware of other complementary care modalities. I try to incorporate that of what I learned on mindfulness, and herbology into my process.
Who I am Outside of Dietetics
Dietetics is a huge part of my life, but just as I advocate for treating the whole person, I want to share my whole self with you! Outside of my job, I love interacting with food and people in almost every area of my life. I’m a local food fanatic, wild fermenter, and I’m always on the lookout for new recipes and flavor combinations to try.
