Originally from southwest Colorado, Andrea relocated to Bozeman for graduate school in the fall of 2013, where she earned a master’s of science in Health and Human Development with emphases in nutrition and exercise. During her graduate work and research, she also completed the required courses in order to become a registered dietitian. Within a year of finishing graduate school, she enrolled in the Montana Dietetic Internship. Over the course of a year, she worked in numerous areas of rural Montana with various populations of people including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, gastrointestinal diseases, and many more. Andrea successfully became a registered dietitian in 2017 and is a licensed nutritionist in the state of Montana. She relocated to Kalispell during the last quarter of 2017 and has enjoyed numerous hiking, backpacking, snowboarding, and snow shoeing adventures during her brief time in the area. Andrea firmly believes in helping people create a healthful balance between food, activity, and general wellness factors, in hopes of improving her clients’ quality of life through preventing the development and progression of acute and chronic diseases. After all, the food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison. -Ann Wigmore
