Your Personal Registered Dietitian

My name is Lea Palmer and I am your personal registered dietitian nutritionist. I am excited to share my passion for a healthy life with you! Wellness has so many components and it can be tricky navigating. Together we can make those steps to reach your goals in an exciting way. Before you know it you will be LOVING the life you live!

As an introduction, I received my nutrition and dietetics degree from Utah State University. My dietetic rotations were at several locations around the state of Utah including:

  • Burn center
  • Pediatric hospital 
    • acute care​
    • surgical floor
    • outpatient diabetes clinic
    • outpatient cardiac clinic
    • NICU
  • General hospitals:
    • ICU’s
    • Oncology Department
    • Medical Floor
    • Rehabilitation Floor
    • Women’s Health
    • NICU
  • Dialysis center
  • WIC
  • Daycare
  • Elementary school
  • High school
  • Nursing homes & an Assisted Living facility
  • Refugee Connection Center

After graduation I worked as a state youth programming coordinator and moved down to Arizona to do my masters in public health and work as a WIC dietitian and clinic supervisor. 

I completed my masters project in Fargo, North Dakota with a focus on reducing postpartum depression among new mamas,

In 2019 I moved to Anchorage, Alaska to work as a research pediatric dietitian and food & nutrition program coordinator for Head Starts all around the state. During this time I finally took the leap and opened up Healthy Beginnings, which has been a dream of mine since I started school.

I later received an opportunity to help continue the fight against nutrition insecurity in Utah and made the move down to another beautiful state full of beautiful cultures. I continue to see clients in a telehealth capacity in Alaska, Utah, Arizona, and Maryland.

Nutrition and wellness is my passion at work and at home. I love cooking & trying new recipes, exploring the mountains with my dog, and finding creative ways to stay motivated.

I look forward to connecting and seeing how I can support your journey to a healthy beginning!
