I grew up on an Angus cattle farm in small-town Indiana. As you might guess, meat and dairy were a big part of daily life. Unfortunately, so were GI issues like chronic constipation. For years, I was told to manage my issues with medication instead of considering the food I was putting into my body.

I earned my Masters of Public Health and Nutrition from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and became a registered dietitian in 2012. But, even after all that, my issues didn’t completely go away. It wasn’t until I did personalized research to dive deep into my own life and my own eating habits that I noticed a significant change. For me, this meant transitioning to a plant-based lifestyle.

After that transition, I knew there were others who could benefit from a diet filled with more plants. I also knew it was critical for the coaching and information they received to be based on a deep understanding of their unique situation. That’s when I realized why I became a dietitian. I made it my mission to help others transition to a plant-centered way of eating through a holistic approach and personalized guidance.

From an Angus cattle farm to a plant-based lifestyle

Like so many of you out there, I have spent most of my adult life struggling with my relationship with food. I used food to self-soothe, cure boredom, and to relieve anxiety. I was not given the tools as a young person to manage stress in a healthy way or taught about a healthful approach to food, nutrition, and my body. All of this in conjunction with a high stress job and years of unhealthy habits was a recipe for disaster. I found myself isolated, sick, and at my wit’s end.

I woke up one day and said “I need help”. Thankfully, I found Plant Centered Nutrition. Ashley helped me regain control of my life. She taught me how to create a healthful relationship with food and myself and how to form new and sustainable habits that I use every single day. With her help, I am a stronger, healthier, and more confident version of myself.

I don’t even recognize the life I have now compared to what it used to be and I knew I wanted to pay it forward. I want you to feel all of the benefits I have experienced from adopting a new approach to food. Inspired by Ashley and this new way of life, I pursued this passion further by becoming a Certified Nutritionist and Coach!

I am thrilled to help you achieve your goals. We can do this together by throwing out the food rules, tuning out the noise, and diverting the attention back to your needs and desires. We’ll work gently and intensively to design a lifestyle that will allow you to not only achieve your goals but maintain them. I’ll teach you how to eat with mindfulness and intention, incorporate more plants, and live a fuller life. I can’t wait to get started!

Certified Nutritionist & Health Coach

Hey! I’m Katie Selvey

The “secret” to healthful nutrition is getting to know yourself. It’s figuring out what makes you feel great, and what doesn’t make you feel great. It’s banishing the idea of "this is how we've always eaten" to learning to fuel your body with nutrient-dense, plant-based foods. 

plant-based eating can provide countless health benefits.

Our goal is to help you break down the walls surrounding what you eat. We’re constantly told the secret to being healthy is following this diet or taking that magic supplement. But that’s simply not true.

Food has the power to positively impact your health.

I reached out to Ashley because I’d been suffering from high cholesterol since I was 8 years old. What I received from working with her was beyond my greatest hope. My cholesterol is down. I’m eating a way that aligns with my beliefs. I’m moving my body in ways that bring me joy and energy. Most importantly, I’ve learned to let go of the diet culture mentality, heal my relationship with food, and finally start to love and appreciate my body for all it has done for me.

Ashley helped me become excited for the future with her contagious positivity, love, and support. I’m so grateful I have her in my corner.

She helped me become more aware, listen to my body’s cues, fuel appropriately for my sport, and still enjoy all of my favorite foods while cutting the weight. I needed and not feeling disordered or absolutely insane in my approach to food. I cannot recommend her enough! If you want to become healthier, happier, and reach specific goals (she does NOT only focus on weight loss) regarding your nutrition, she is the lady you need to talk to. Thank you, Ashley.

The amount of guidance, principles, positivity, structure, and altogether healing she has brought to my life…it’s all so priceless.
