Questions and Answers
Oops! Sorry about mis-addressing you Ms. Roark. I'm trying to seek out as many different perspectives as possible, and I did not revise my message. You can accidentally call me Mark and then we'll be even. I hope to still hear from you despite my blunder!
No problem. I just assumed you had hit the wrong button, so I did not respond. Sorry about that. To your question, I do not have a master's degree. I work in a physician practice and we market my CSSD on our website. I do see some sports only clients, but I work sports nutrition into many of my client interactions even if they are not specifically sports related. I hope that helps!
I hope I answered your question in my previous response, but let me know if there is more to your question. I do think a Master's degree is going to be very important for RDs, but I don't know that it will matter that much what it is in unless you are going to try to work as a team sports RD. Master's in Exercise Science or Sports Nutrition would probably be the way to go in that case.
I have a quick question I hope you can answer. I have been asked to present to a community swim team, ages six to senior in high school, I plan on providing the SCAN Fact sheets. I want to ensure that I give age appropriate advice. Can you verify what the cut off ages for the Child/Teen Hydration sheets are? I assume child is up to age 12? Teen of course covers 13-18? Thank you!
April Parsells, RDN
I am sorry to say that I am not the person who could give you that answer. You are probably assuming correctly, but I could not say for sure as I was not part of developing these fact sheets.
Best of Luck,
I'm a 115 lb female training for a triathlon (May 15). Unsure about my nutrition - every article says something different. I live in Braselton - do you have an office nearby? What kind of services do you offer?
I know all the nutrition information out there can get confusing. I would love to help you. My office is in Gainesville at the Northeast Georgia Diagnostic Clinic. For sports nutrition, I primarily do one on one counseling. I also offer grocery store tours. You could give my assistant, Amber, a call to discuss further. Her number is 770-297-4967. I look forward to meeting you.
