From the Return to Sports program to helping my daughter perform at her best on the tennis court, the trainers at ACCEL are the BEST!
Caroline Pruente, MS, RDN, LDN is a licensed Registered
Dietitian Nutritionist. Raised in Texas and Tennessee, Caroline was
thrilled to move back to Tennessee after earning her Bachelor of
Human Environmental Sciences with an emphasis in Food, Nutrition,
and Dietetics and Masters in Dietetics at the University of
Missouri. She also completed her dietetic internship through
University of Missouri’s Coordinated Program in Dietetics at the
University Hospital in Columbia, Missouri in the Medical and
Surgical ICUs. She gained invaluable clinical experience while
practicing and providing medical nutrition therapy and nutrition
support to mid-Missouri’s most critical patients.
While in Columbia, Caroline completed a two-year internship at the Mizzou Athletic Training Center. Working one-on-one with D1 athletes from all sports, she provided sports nutrition education, created meal plans for individual athletes to better meet their goals, and was responsible for the football team’s post-practice snack station, ensuring the new SEC team was properly fueled.
From studying recipe development, food sustainability, and Intuitive Eating in Italy, to working with individuals with eating disorders in multiple levels of care, Caroline quickly discovered a passion for helping others develop nourishing, peaceful relationships with food. Ever since, she has been an advocate for a non-diet lifestyle, basing health, nutrition, and movement decisions on one’s intuition for their own body.
Caroline is currently involved in multiple areas of the nutrition & dietetics field, working as a Clinical Dietitian at Methodist LeBonheur Healthcare and as a Nutrition Therapist with Memphis Nutrition Group. In her free time, she enjoys baking cakes, keeping up with her Instagram @MintToEat, and running through Memphis trails and parks. She is excited to continue Memphis Nutrition Group’s partnership with Campbell Clinic by offering onsite nutrition-related services at Accel Performance and Wellness!
