Ashley Beam is a registered dietitian who graduated from Indiana University of Pennsylvania holding degrees in Dietetics, Chemistry, and Medical Microbiology. She was awarded her Master’s degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
Ashley has worked extensively with clients of all ages and all medical backgrounds through her dietetics training and in private practice, helping them achieve optimal mental and physical health through holistic nutrition practices. She believes in individual care that is backed by science and tailors her sessions to the needs of each individual client. Every person is unique and she treats everyone that way. No two plans will ever be the same, because no two individuals are the same. Every recommendation she provides has a reason behind it, and she consistently informs her clients of the “why”. She likes to keep her clients informed and educate them as she believes that education is empowering. The more her clients know and understand the more they will feel “equipped” to progress towards their nutrition goals. She also provides group sessions, and holds presentations to a variety of populations.
Ashley enjoys working with clients of all ages and all backgrounds, but she is particularly passionate about working with clients who are battling mental health disorders such as anxiety, depression, and eating disorders.
Given her diverse educational background and interest in the role that diet plays on inflammation and mental health conditions she decided to dive into the research, not only for herself, but also to better help her clients. With that said, she recently had research published in regards to diet and dietary components and how it affects the gut microbiome, in turn affecting mental and physical health. Using her past publication and current research, she believes diet plays a vital role in mental and physical health and could be the missing piece to the puzzle to live a happy, abundant life.
