Bio: Julie S. Satterfeal, MS, RDN, LD

 Julie is a registered dietitian, author, speaker, podcast host, and coach. She is dedicated to building empathy as a means to break down the shame-based culture of dieting, freeing individuals up to create authentic health and a positive relationship with food. Her book, Ditch the Diet: How to Reclaim your Health and Enjoy Food, encapsulates this passion and is a resource for those searching for peace with food. She is a professional speaker sharing these concepts in many arenas – from state associations, corporations, and universities, to specialized nutrition forums. Her practice provides nutrition coaching, seminars, and programs that promote authentic health by nurturing the body mind and spirit – not by adhering to food rules, diets, and weight goals. Julie is a graduate of Virginia Tech and Illinois State University, and lives with her husband and three children in Huntsville, Alabama.
