Nutrition To Grow is owned and operated by me, Registered Dietitian Sarah James.  I was born and raised in West Terre Haute, Indiana and have a passion for teaching my community how to improve their lives through proper nutrition in a fun and manageable way.  I graduated with a Bachelors of Science degree from Indiana State University, completed the coordinated dietetics program, and successfully passed the national registration examination for dietitians (yeah!!).

 Since passing my registration exam, I have obtained over 14 years of clinical experience in a variety of facilities that has allowed me to pursue my dream of opening my own private practice.  I want others to know that if you work hard, dream big, and reach for your goals they will come true!  I have worked in Connecticut, Indianapolis, and Terre Haute as a RD in nursing homes, hospitals, hospice companies, and a psychiatric facility.  This has given me great experience in both Adult and pediatric nutrition, but I have always had a special interest in the pediatric nutrition area.  Most of my clinical experience at a local hospital was providing nutrition education, recommendations, and care to the neonatal intensive care unit.  I have counselled a large number of adults with a multitude of chronic illnesses as well.  I  love sharing my nutrition knowledge to others and hope to help my community learn to make nutrition a priority.
