About Me

Stacie Ellis is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who has a passion for helping others reach their
health goals.   Stacie grew up as a military brat which allowed her to experience many cultures and environments.  She feels comfortable around people  with different backgrounds and experiences.   Being bi-racial herself, she understands that being different sometimes can affect patient/client relationship and hopes to help her clients feel comfortable around her. 

She attended Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas receiving her Bachelors of Science in Science Composite with an emphasis in Geology and a minor in Secondary Education.  After Graduation she went to Brooklyn, New York to work with Metro Ministries, an organzation that works with youth in lower income areas by sharing the gospel message. 

After her internship she became a high school science teacher at Shoemaker High School in Killeen, TX.  During her time there she taught Chemistry, Integrated Physics and Chemistry, and Earth and Space Science to grades 9th-12th.  This school was also unique because most students came from military families.  She taught at the school during the time many of the parents were deployed to Iraq, making it critical for all the teachers to be a support for the students.  During her time teaching she emphasized the importance of education, and even told her students that one day she too would return to school to further her education.   Which she did, just a few years later! 

She attended Texas Woman's University in Denton, Texas and graduated Summa Cum Laude with her Post Baccalaureate degree in Nutrition and Dietetics,  She then completed her Dietetic Internship with Texas Woman's University and is currently a Master's Student in Nutrition.  Her thesis is on the effects of using Athlete’s Plate for Easy Training/ Weight Management on dancer's body composition and overall health.  Stacie completed the Certificate of Training in Adult Weight Management Program on June 4-6, 2015.

Outside of education Stacie is very passionate about dance and physical fitness.  Stacie is currently a Demi Soloist with the First Wing Ballet Foundation Company/ Dance Institute of Dallas in Dallas, Texas.  She previously danced with Ballet Renee Company/Newcomb School of Ballet in Killeen, Texas where she received the bulk of ballet training under Margaret Newcomb and Renee Gillenwater.  Stacie also enjoys running cross country and working out in the gym.  She is willing to try anything that makes her body move and get stronger.
