We offer the services of a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist!
Meet Emmylou Newell, RDN, CD, LD
Emmylou has been in practice for 15 years as a dietitian specializing in medical nutrition therapy for diabetes, gestational diabetes and high risk pregnancies, cancer, heart disease, weight management and kidney disease. She brings much experience not only as a dietitian but as a nutrition counselor and lifestyle coach, and is excited to work with the clients at APF.
Emmylou has a passion for nutrition and health and believes there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to helping clients meet their goals. Each person has a unique and important set of challenges that she loves to tackle with positive, evidence based guidelines.
Emmylou loves utilizing the services at APF but also enjoys running half marathons, trail running, hiking and snow skiing with her family. She loves being outdoors being active with her husband and 3 kids. She loves to cook and bring together simple healthy meals. She has experienced many of the same challenges her clients encounter so is able to relate and motivate! She has served on the local dietitian board for several years (Greater Spokane Dietetic Association) and the Washington State Nutrition Academy board in various volunteer positions. She loves working with the teenagers in her church’s youth group and also working with the elderly population as a nutrition consultant as she has been doing over the previous 8 years.
