Hi, I’m Stephanie Willard

Master Level Registered Dietitian / MS RD
Certified ARFID Specialist

Stephanie lives in southern Colorado Springs with her husband, two kids, and too many pets. She decided to pursue a career as a dietitian after studying her family members’ various nutrition-related conditions, including Celiac disease and Failure to Thrive/Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID). She understands what it is like being on the other side of treatment and uses this experience to help other individuals and their families in similar situations.

As a former high school science teacher, Stephanie spent many years connecting with and encouraging others to try their best, try new things, and give themselves credit for even trying at all!

Stephanie continues to enjoy working with adolescents/young adults and their families and strives to build relationships that instill hope and perseverance with the younger population.

When she is not working, Stephanie enjoys painting, cooking, and getting out to the Nature Center with her kids as much as possible.

Why "Forward"?

What other way is there to go? Your past does not define you, nor does it get to decide how you will live in your future. As long as you continue taking steps, big or small, you’re still moving forward!

This might look like taking a walk to the mailbox after a few days stuck inside; choosing to eat in a way that fuels your body for one more meal today than yesterday; or choosing joyful movement instead of an exercise that doesn’t inspire you!
