Shanley is a registered dietitian at Sacramento’s Discovery Mood & Anxiety Program. She is also a registered dietitian and director of perinatal nutrition services for a private practice OB-GYN office in Folsom, CA. Shanley received her Bachelor of Science degree in nutrition and food science in 2014 from Chico State University, with a focus on community and sports nutrition. After college, she worked for a non-profit organization. Though she was working in an area of preventative nutrition, she realized it could not take away the disease and illness that had already occurred. While finishing her didactic coursework through the University of Northern Colorado, Shanley worked full time for the Women, Infant and Children’s (WIC) Program for three years, furthering her skills in nutrition education, counseling women struggling with perinatal mood disorders, and becoming a certified lactation educator (CLE). In 2020, Shanley’s article “Critical Care for Patients with Eating Disorders” was published, an accomplishment near and dear to her heart. Nutrition has been her greatest passion for a long time now, and she looks forward to helping others be their best each and every day.
