Meet Your Instructor

Edge Nutrition was founded by Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Sara Griffin, MS, RDN, CNSC. Frustrated by a lack of personal confidence during her clinical rotation, she set out to create the first nutrition support curriculum of its kind: one that not only educates but empowers students.

Sara continues to practice regularly in the hospital environment, which sets her apart from other instructors you may encounter. Nutrition science and clinical guidelines change rapidly, and Sara is committed to bringing you the most relevant evidenced-based clinical content. 

Sara found a passion for dietetics through food, as many do, and completed her undergraduate studies in Chicago. After managing restaurants for a year, she landed her first choice internship – a public health program in sunny Colorado. Here, Sara gained a passion for preventative, ethical medicine. She began working as an inpatient clinical dietitian at an acute care hospital in Denver and completed a master’s degree in human nutrition at Colorado State University with a focus on education. 

Along the way, she picked up an advanced credential, Certified Nutrition Support Clinician (CNSC), and won a Young Dietitian of the Year award from the Colorado Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics for her precepting work. Learn more about Sara’s accolades and awards here.

Sara has precepted over a dozen interns and loves empowering her students to crush their goals. She continues to practice inpatient dietetics, and also teaches nutrition classes at a local community college. Sara believes in the importance of examining personal biases, creating equity in the classroom, and empowering students of color to be successful in the dietetics profession.  

In her spare time, Sara enjoys urban gardening, baking sourdough bread and living a low-waste lifestyle. She loves a good chat about fiber and the microbiome. You can connect with her professionally on LinkedIn
