Meet Ashley Swanson, Nutritionist

I love to educate and counsel people on nutrition. I am passionate about working one-on-one with patients and helping to heal them from the inside out, nutritionally and holistically.

My philosophy is to analyze the total person for nutritional counseling. I examine nutritional intakes and supplements, along with a focus on lifestyle, prevention and incorporation of natural therapies. I design custom wellness plans and transformational nutritional programs. I assist in all facets of customized meal development and culinary nutrition (the art of eating + cooking for health).

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Culinary Science and a Master’s Degree in Nutritional Science from Iowa State University.

My work has been published:

I believe in nutrition, health and cooking well. I believe in pursuing well-being through a healthy diet, exercise, yoga, adventure, learning, personal connection and sunshine. I believe that holistic wellness is a fine balance of the mind, body and soul that allows an individual to achieve their highest level of vibrant health and happiness. I am passionate about hiking, exploring and traveling to new places. I love to be continually researching and writing scientifically about nutrition and wellness to further educate people.

I hope to see you at Wolfson Integrative Cardiology.
