Laurie McDonald, RD, CNSC (Registered Dietitian, Certified Nutrition Support Clinician)
Laurie graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and went on to complete her Dietetic Internship at the same university. She spent 5-1/2 years working as a clinical dietitian at Banner Heart Hospital and also providing coverage at Banner Baywood Medical Center, before opening her private practice in fall of 2019. Laurie’s work at the hospital encompassed patients with diverse disease states and medical issues (cardiac, kidney, gastrointestinal, diabetes, malnutrition, tube feeding and more).
Laurie enjoys being outdoors, exercising and reading a good novel. She likes to run and hike on desert and mountain trails and considers any wrong turn she makes (directionally or otherwise) to be “taking the scenic route”. Laurie and her husband collectively have 4 grown children and one wonderfully fun grandchild!
