Carrie E. Gunn

Meet with PLNU's registered dietitian nutritionist for a one-on-one, confidential consultation to address your nutrition questions or concerns. Our dietitian also works closely with students navigating the PLNU Dining Hall Cafeteria with food allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances.

With so many options & changes that occur in the college years, students are often confused about how to eat right. I am here to help our students navigate food choices on & off campus. As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who specializes in Intuitive Eating & Functional Nutrition, we can work together to translate nutritional science into practical information individualized just for you. My passion is to bring freedom and simplicity to the area of nutrition and relationships with food. I am available to meet for 1-1 counseling sessions and also in the Caf during lunch hours on Mondays. I am looking forward to meeting you!
