My name is Natalie Nation, MPH, RD, LD.
I’m a registered dietitian living and working in Minneapolis, MN.
I work in a school-based health center to provide nutrition education and counseling to teenagers in 1:1 appointments, group education, and classrooms.
I’m a freelance writer sharing practical and professional advice as a guest writer. I love to write about how teens and their parents can better navigate the ins and outs of nutrition, body image, and self-care.
Based on my passion for working with adolescents, I also create and sell teen-friendly digital education materials for other dietitians to use when working with teen clients.
I’ve spoken in classrooms and gymnasiums, on virtual and in-person panels and forums, and on podcasts!
