She’s worked at Broughton Hospital, and many know her for writing a column for The News Herald.
But now, Mandy Nix is bringing her nutrition expertise to a new business in a downtown Morganton private practice.
Healing Nutrition recently opened at 115 Queen St. inside the Awakenings Spa location where Nix, a registered dietitian specializing in clinical and integrative nutrition, will offer counseling and programs personalized for each of her patients.
“I’ll be offering nutrition counseling for nutrition-related diseases such as weight management, diabetes, renal disease, high cholesterol, any (gastrointestinal) or gut disorders. Those are my focus, but any nutrition-related issues. Especially, I think weight loss and weight management are a huge part of my offerings.”
A Burke County native, Nix received her master’s degree in nutrition from Iowa State University after earning her bachelor’s degree in nutrition from Northern Colorado University. She also has a bachelor’s degree in business from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
Nix worked at Broughton for about seven years and, before that, for about two years at the health department in Spartanburg, S.C. After spending so much time doing nutrition counseling in other places, Nix gravitated back toward what she really wanted to do and a chance to use all the education she has acquired.
