Hi and welcome to Neat Nutrition! My name is Tara Noseck and I am a Las Vegas-based registered dietitian/nutritionist. I bet you have stopped by to get to know me a little better. Here’s my story…
My interest in nutrition was born organically, during my 15+ years as a professional dancer and model. What began as a desire for the outward appearance of health and fitness, evolved into a passion to learn the science of nutrition for health from the inside out.
By night, I was a performer on the Las Vegas strip, but by day I was studying the Kreb cycle and microbiology. I received my bachelor’s degree from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and soon after became a registered dietitian.
My subsequent experience interning in the hospital-setting and practicing in the conventional arena left me wondering if I had chosen the right field. I was disheartened by the lip service paid to nutrition and lifestyle, but the lack of action being taken to use these in practice as a path to healing. Pills were preferred.
As the daughter of an internal medicine MD and a registered nurse, I have always had a reverence (and still do) for the marvels of Western medicine, but it was becoming increasingly clear to me that we were failing ourselves in the arena of chronic disease.
My yearning for something better turned to curiosity, and a serendipitous email thread led me to discover functional medicine and nutrition. Two weeks later, I was enrolled in the Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy and it changed EVERYTHING for me.
