I am a Registered Dietitian, Certified Personal Trainer, and Board Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics with experience in clinical, weight management, and sports nutrition. I most recently worked as a Sports Dietitian at IMG Academy, University of Georgia, and Duke University, and use the unique skills I developed to help clients improve their health and athletic performance through nutrition counseling. I grew up as a competitive athlete, playing soccer and baseball, and now enjoy playing and watching all sports recreationally, working out, and cooking healthy meals.
I focus on changing nutrition and health behavior habits to achieve your goals. My approach is to work with what you are currently doing and tweak certain aspects of your routine in order to achieve results without creating unmanageable changes.
We offer a variety of services to best fit your needs. Whether you’re a working professional looking to manage your weight and health, or a high school athlete looking to earn a college scholarship, we have just what you need! Read below for more information on our services.

Derek is a gem! My son needed to increase his caloric intake in a healthy way in order to gain weight as he prepares to play a D1 sport. He was able to work with his goals safely and efficiently. Derek’s meal ideas were great and easy to incorporate into his daily routine. We definitely recommend FC Sports Nutrition for athletes! Very impressed.
Derek is great. My family has been trying to get in better shape and Derek is always a text or email away and answers all questions and is extremely helpful. In-home visits are positive and make you feel accomplished. Thanks Derek!
Working with Derek, I immediately saw progress from the workouts and changing my eating habits. I started out as a size 6 and was down to a size 0 by my wedding. His background of nutrition combined with personal training allowed me to not only lose 20 lbs and tone my body, but did so without having to go on a diet where I would starve myself. He immediately helped me adjust my eating habits, which started me on the right path to weight loss. Derek developed a detailed workout plan for me, however, I was not the best at juggling how to fit in workouts with all my wedding appointments. Derek worked with me to develop an even more detailed plan that revolved around all the appointments and activities I had scheduled. Not only were the workouts always different, but they increased in intensity as the weeks went on. He also mixed in workouts that could be done at home along with an aerobics class I enjoyed attending.
During the entire process, I never felt I was on a diet. Derek showed me how I could still to eat foods I enjoyed and stay in shape.
Derek has been nothing short of amazing in helping me achieve my goals both athletically and physically. The amount of confidence and strength I have gained while working with Derek has been life changing. I have been able to transform my body in just 2 months with the guidance of Derek. He has always been there for me through this process, and the guy really knows his stuff! The changes Derek helped me make are changes that will help me reach my goals of playing professionally and put me in the best position to do so.
If you want to take your body, mind, and physical athletic ability to the next level, Derek is the guy you want in your corner. From losing body fat, to adding muscle, whatever your need is, Derek can do it. I will always be team #FullCircleSportsNutrition.
