I’m taking the leap! In June of 2018, I submitted my letter of resignation to my traditional hospital-based job and took my first steps into entrepreneurship with Hailey Crean Nutrition, LLC. While my heart still beats a little faster (even now) thinking about it, I couldn’t feel more confident about the decision and I believe this confidence is rooted in the reason why I decided to make this move.
I have spent the past ten years working as a Registered Dietitian, and during this time have had the opportunity to work with thousands of patients spanning the spectrum of health conditions, readiness to change and barriers to change. This experience has been invaluable to me – both in understanding the realness of the barriers that exist and in evaluating the way I, as a healthcare provider, contribute to these barriers.
What I see clearly is that we can do this better. It’s no secret that lifestyle change is hard; it’s hard to make the changes, to begin with, and often even harder to sustain over the long term. The research shows more frequent follow up is key for success however in a culture of packed schedules time is limited.
My mission in creating Hailey Crean Nutrition, LLC is to provide evidenced-based nutrition support and education brought to clients directly with the convenience of telenutrition. I aim to cut out the noise of confusing and misleading nutrition information by providing clients with a resource they can trust and ongoing support for lasting lifestyle changes.
At the core of my nutrition philosophy I believe:
- All foods fit! Foods are not good or bad but we should look for a balance.
- There is no one size fits all solution, I focus on an individualized approach.
- What we eat matters. Eat well. Feel well.
