In 2004, Full Circle Nutrition was started with the intent to help improve an
    individual's quality of life through nutrition.

        Lao Tzu said, "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a
    man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime." I strive to provide the tools
    people can use to help themselves long after I have gone. My goal with
    clients is to teach myself right out of a job.
        Bessie Stanley said, " know even one life breathed easier because
    you have lived. This is to have succeeded." I believe if I have been able to
    improve the life of patients I see using evidenced based nutrition, then all
    my hard work during and after school was worth it. I enjoy getting positive
    feedback from patients after I have helped them.

        I earned a Bachelors (BS) in Nutrition Science from Cal Poly State
    University and a Masters (MS) in Dietetics from D'Youville College. For my
    bachelors, I worked on a weight loss surgery video documentary. While in
    grad school, I had the opportunity to research the Patient Knowledge of
    Nutrition Care After Gastric Bypass.
        I passed the national exam for registered dietitians through CDR and
    earned the RD designation, which makes me a dietitian. The LD part after
    my name stands for "licensed dietitian" and is required in Texas in order
    to practice dietetics. I speak intermediate level Spanish.
        I believe in and practice the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetic's Code
    Ethics for Registered Dietitians.

    Ponder This...

    Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate,
    our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
    It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.
    We ask ourselves, "Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented,

    Actually, who are you NOT to be?
    You are a child of God.
    Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
    There's nothing enlightened about shrinking
    so that other people won't feel insecure around you.

    We were born to make manifest
    the glory of God that is within us.
    It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
    And as we let our own light shine,
    we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
    As we're liberated from our own fear,
    our presence automatically liberates others.
                                            By Marianne Williamson--A Return to Love

        by Bessie A. Stanley

    To laugh often and much;
    to win the respect of intelligent people
            and the affection of children;
    to earn the appreciation of honest critics
    and endure the betrayal of false friends;
          to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others;
    to leave the world a bit better,
    whether by a healthy child,
            a garden patch
            or a redeemed social condition;
              to know even one life has breathed easier
    because you have lived.
            This is to have succeeded.

    For me, to know "...even one life breathed easier because you have
    lived, this is to have succeeded." what an awesome thought (even if
    that one life is your own.) In allowing yourself to live, you are then
    able to make a positive impact in the lives of others. Every day is a
    new opportunity to love, laugh, learn, play, or say kind words to
    someone we don't know or who needs to hear them. It is our choice.
    You never know how your words, actions, or deeds impact another.
    They may make all the difference and completely turn their day
    around. Leave a legacy of positivity, happiness, health, balance, and
    peace. Take or make the time to truly live. Embrace all that life has
    to offer. Life. It is truly a gift, fleeting though it may be.
