Emily Estes earned her Masters of Science in Nutrition and Health Science at the University of Nebraska – Lincoln (UNL). Through the completion of her dietetic internship at UNL, Emily held a special interest for developing skills to engage in eating disorder treatment. Her passion for education, treatment, and prevention of eating disorders led Emily to enter private practice following her dietetic internship. She is the Founder of Sage Nutrition, LLC where services are specifically geared toward food, exercise, and body image struggles. Her treatment philosophy encompasses a Health At Every Size approach with a goal to see individuals move toward self-acceptance while finding joy and pleasure in their relationship to food and body.
Emily has long been an advocate for bringing eating disorder treatment opportunities to the Lincoln community. She is now the Clinical Dietitian and Regional Outreach Representative for EDCare‘s Lincoln location. Emily is passionate about bringing community providers together to provide networking and continuing education opportunities. She is the Co-Founder of the Nebraska Eating Disorder Network (NEDN). In an effort to provide on-going support and resources to the eating disorder community (survivors, encouragers, and professionals), Emily developed the Recovery Box – a combination of tangible recovery tools as well as free web-based resources available to each area of the eating disorder community. Emily is the author of Affirming ME, diminishing ed and CRAVE: Discovering God’s Goodness in Food and Body.
In her time away from work, Emily enjoys the outdoors, spending time with her golden doodle pup, traveling, and exploring her creative outlets.
