Andrea Johnson, M.A., is a Registered Dietitian and a Certified LEAP Therapist specializing in food sensitivities, nutrition counseling, health writing and teaches as an adjunct instructor for online nutrition courses at the University of Montana College of Technology. Prior to her most recent career path, she worked with the local WIC nutrition program and blogged for a health supplement site. She has built upon her experience beginning her career as a clinical dietitian for 3.5 years. During that time, she was a contributing author in the Journal of Renal Nutrition for her research on the effects of protein supplementation in dialysis patients. It was also during her clinical years where she developed a strong understanding of gastrointestinal disorders which provided the ability to assist with editing and contributing to the “Diverticulitis Digest Cookbook.”
Ms. Johnson has a Master’s degree in Nutrition from Appalachian State University and a Bachelor’s of Science in Nutrition from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. This is her seventh year practicing as a dietitian and is very pleased with how her career is evolving. For the past 13 years, she has kept abreast of current research and continuing education which has allowed her to provide the most up to date and reliable nutrition advice. She is a member of the American Dietetic Association and the practice groups of Integrated/Functional Nutrition, Nutrition Entrepreneurs, and Hunger and Environmental Nutrition. Most recently, Andrea has become a certified LEAP therapist which allows her to specialize in food sensitivities which can be involved in a wide range of conditions such as IBS, fibromyalgia, migraines, gastritis, rheumatoid arthritis, asthma and more.
