As a registered dietitian with my Master’s in Nutritional Science I am passionate about working 1-on-1 with clients and brands to communicate a science based approach to living your best life.
Food affects almost every aspect of our lives, so why not feel empowered by the choices you make? During my masters degree program I was shocked by the amount of information and misinformation available online and in the press. Not only can it feel impossible to decipher, but it’s also hard to know who to trust. With a surgeon as a father and a judge as my grandfather it is in my blood to always uncover the truth and help explain what it means to others. The more I studied the metabolic processes and current research the more I realized all too often people suffer from poor nutrition not because of will-power, but because of lack of proper education. At Ashley Hawk RD my goal is to translate the science of nutrition into everyday practice for you.
How Healthy Happens is a new show airing on 10/22 at 7am on the Food Network. During each episode Ashley Hawk helps viewers discover healthy tips, tricks, and highlights the best products for all things food, fitness, and nutrition. Our core values are honest, sustainable, and health forward practices and products.
As a working professional I saw first hand how intimidating and confusing it can be to understand your body’s relationship with food. Prior to my career in nutrition I graduated with a double major in Communications and Screenwriting from Loyola Marymount University where I went on to work in front and behind the camera in television. In my mid-twenties I took a break from working 50+ hours a week in entertainment and went to Liberia Costa Rica for 6 months where I volunteered at a school teaching English. I loved working with children and young adults but I couldn’t deny the absence of nutrition education that I noticed in many of the families. This is where I realize that often poor nutrition is not caused by lack of willpower, but by lack of education. Upon returning from this trip I knew I wanted to go back to be able to teach nutrition to everyone.
Since completing my masters I have been able to combine my experience in media with my education in nutrition to help spread the importance of using optimal nutrition to prevent chronic disease as well as work one-on-one with clients to help them reach their nutrition goals.
