Mari-Etta Parrish RD, LDN, CSSD
                                              I am a board certified Registered
                                              Dietitian, Exercise Physiologist,
                                              and endurance athlete. I graduated
                                              from Lipscomb University and
                                              completed a residency through
                                              National Health Care Corporation.
                                              After working in clinical and
                                              community nutrition for a decade, I
                                              am combining my passion for
                                              nutrition and exercise in the
                                              practice of Sports Nutrition.
                                              Nutrition is one of the fastest
                                              growing fields across the globe, and Nashville athletes have not had access to a dedicated board certified sports specialist dietitian. I am assuming that role, and I will promote the growth of Sports Nutrition.

As a specialist in this area, I will provide safe, effective, evidence-based nutrition services that include: an assessment, nutrition diagnosis, intervention, counseling, and follow-up evaluations. These services will be available to sports organizations as well as physically active individuals and groups. I specialize in applying the science of sports nutrition to fuel fitness and performance. I also provide personalized sports medical nutrition therapy for special populations. The therapies pertain to: bone mineral disturbances, cardiovascular conditions, diabetes, disabled athletes, eating disorders, female athlete triad, food allergies, wound and injury healing, gastro-intestinal disorders, high blood pressure, iron-deficiency anemia, and weight or body composition management. My objectives are to enhance the performance, health and longevity of individuals that range from the weekend warrior to the professional athlete with focus, food, and fitness.
