Grace Goodwin Dwyer, MS, MA, RD, LDN, Nutrition
Total years in practice: 6
I became interested in nutrition as a teenager when I developed GI issues and nothing seemed to help – until I finally figured out that limiting certain foods had a major impact on how I felt. My nutrition philosophy then fundamentally changed throughout adulthood and I now see that the less we restrict, the better we typically feel.

I’m a huge nutrition-science nerd with two postgraduate degrees. I’m passionate about constantly learning as well as meaningfully helping people – and as an RD, I do both! Originally I’m from the Washington, D.C., area and now live in Nashville. I’m a vinyasa yoga teacher and an avid podcast-listener. I have been a devoted Beyonce fan since before she was world-famous (think Destiny’s Child with 4 members). If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll learn a lot about nutrition for women and you’ll see a lot of my French bulldog, Cora.

Individuality. No lifestyle fits everyone. Otherwise, nutrition would be easy! Different foods work for different people. In our work together, we’ll determine what uniquely fits you.
Authenticity. Life can be hard and people are messy. Clients can “show up” as they are and that is always enough.
Evidence Basis. No pseudoscience here – just counseling rooted in research. As a Registered Dietitian, I uphold high standards for information that I provide.
Foods First. While supplements can be helpful for filling in gaps, I believe we should first meet our needs through food.
