Scarlett Ramey, MS, RD, CD founded Ramey Nutrition in 2007, and has been active in the field of eating disorders and medical nutrition therapy for more than 7 years. Recognized as a rebel in the treatment of eating disorders, Ramey goes against the norm by most treatment standards, in order to achieve patient recovery in a real life environment. Her treatment philosophy often excludes meal plans in order to target specific issues that maintain disorder, and believes that as the soul recovers, food behaviors often do as well.
Ramey was previously Director of Dietetics for a major eating disorder clinic in Washington, and is well-known in the field of eating disorders, including national conferences. She believes that full recovery from an eating disorder is beyond food, or going from one tranquil environment for an extended period of time to another. The word ‘recovered’ resides in the real world, with real emotions, triggers, and media everywhere. Ramey believes in helping patients identify who they truly are, then recovering and healing issues, with which the eating disorder was used to cope. She empowers passion for her patients’ real identity no matter what they suffer, by building social support, setting realistic goals, and identifying pressures-whether internal or external-that keep them from living full, healthy lives.

Juli has 10+ years of experience in the Heath-care Field; with a background working for Hospitals and Long Term Care Facilities.
