As a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist (RDN) at Magnolia Creek, Leigh-Ann is responsible for evaluating clients for nutritional deficiencies and unhealthy food- and weight-related behaviors. She also provides nutritional therapy and education to promote recovery and restoration of health. Leigh-Ann graduated from The University of Mobile with a Bachelor of Science in Human Performance and Exercise Science with a concentration in Exercise Physiology. She then continued her education at The University of Alabama and earned both a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Food and Nutrition.
Having recovered from an eating disorder, she knew from the beginning of her dietetic internship that she wanted to focus on eating disorders and mental health. Leigh-Ann has a desire to help others reach recovery and find freedom in food rules and compulsive exercise in the same way that she was able. With two years of experience in the areas of eating disorders and mental health, she feels so fortunate to play a small part in the recovery process. She is a member of The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics as well as the Behavioral Health Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group. When not at Magnolia Creek, Leigh-Ann is spending time with her husband and new baby. She is actively involved in church and feels that faith can play a large part in the recovery process.
