Your Instructor: Erin Skinner
Hello and welcome! My passion is helping people re-claim their wellness using the power of nutrition. If you're sick of diets that fail and ready for a science-based, realistic approach that really works...you've come to the right place!
I've helped thousands like you to heal their metabolism, re-gain their energy, and put their life on the path they've dreamed of. My belief is that you have everything you need to be successful. You just need the right resources, the right support, and a way to implement it in 'real life'. This course is designed to provide that for you, so that you can succeed.
If you're curious to hear more about me, I am a military veteran and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist with over 14 years of healthcare experience. I started my career helping military aircrew and special forces to optimize their performance, including best nutrition practices.
Through my own health journey, I experienced the frustration of feeling under-served by the traditional medical community. So, I transitioned to the world of integrative and functional nutrition where I have helped thousands of patients experience the relief of finding the root cause of their illnesses, then resolving them with the individualized nutrition plans.
Seeing my patients’ success made me passionate about functional medicine, but I was frustrated by the lack of access (as it is typically very expensive). I pursued my license to become an Integrative and Functional Certified Nutritional Practitioner and co-created one of the nation’s first insurance-based functional medicine clinics, the Inspire Health Center. The success of this clinic proved to me that functional Medicine can be accessible through insurance, and that the key is to work with a trained Registered Dietitian. Empowered Nutrition is the continuation of this vision: to make the next generation of healthcare accessible to all.
I also teach other nutrition professionals how to develop effective nutrition plans for patients who suffer from gastrointestinal conditions such as IBS, IBD, Celiac, reflux, GERD, and SIBO. As the co-founder of the SIBO Academy, I have become a nationally renowned expert in gastrointestinal-focused nutrition.
One key to my effectiveness as a nutrition therapist is staying close to the newest science. I am currently doing this by pursuing my Doctor in Clinical Nutrition (DCN) through Rutgers University. I also like to translate the science into every day, applicable language, such as in my book, the Bone Broth Miracle Diet and in the Empowered Nutrition Podcast.
Finally, I love to connect with and encourage others. I am compassionate and always put the experience of my patients first. Years of successfully working with patients in nutrition coaching and counseling have led me to develop my philosophy: the perfect diet only works if it’s delivered in a way that is caring and supportive.
Aside from my nutrition career, I spend my time with my husband and three boys. As a military family, we love to explore the area and create adventures.
Motherhood is one of the most amazing and simultaneously challenging experiences of your life. Your emotions will run high, your time will be stretched thin and your lack of patience may kick in.
By taking care of yourself, welcoming support and prioritizing your overall health, you are setting yourself up for success.
Remember: A well-nourished and healthy mother is just as important as a healthy child.
