Hey all. I’ve asked local licensed and registered dietitian nutritionist, Emily Funcik, to guest post for PLUFF CAKES’s blog monthly. Please meet Emily.
Emily Funcik is a registered dietitian nutritionist with a private practice in Mount Pleasant where she sees clients for wellness, weight management, and food allergy management. Child feeding is a big passion for Emily as well. She graduated from Clemson University with a bachelors degree in food science and human nutrition before completing her dietetic internship at the Medical University of South Carolina. Emily worked for Roper St. Francis healthcare for several years as the cardiac rehab and general outpatient dietitian before the birth of her first son in 2015. In December of 2015, Emily’s son was diagnosed with an allergy to milk, and this really spurred her interest in helping others thrive despite the diagnosis of food allergies. Since that time, Emily has completed the certificate of training in food allergies and intolerances through the Commission on Dietetic Registration and assisted clients and their families as they learn to navigate food labels, grocery shopping, and food preparation to avoid allergens. Emily is passionate about seeing people live their fullest life with balanced, realistic nutrition and health practices.
