Anna Wilgenburg is a Licensed/Registered Dietitian, working with patients and corporate wellness clients in North Carolina via telehealth.
Anna grew up in West Michigan and completed her bachelor’s degree in psychology and neuroscience at the University of Michigan. She moved to the Triangle area to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for a master’s degree in public health and nutrition and dietetics. As part of her dietetic internship during the program, Anna worked at the UNC Medical Center, the Nutrition and Diabetes Care Center of North Carolina, and the Carolina Hunger Initiative. During these rotations, she was able to learn about and work with clients who had many different conditions while focusing further on diabetes and women’s health, including pregnancy and gestational diabetes.
Anna found an interest in dietetics after working with a dietitian herself. She had always enjoyed working with people, and after having her own health issues during college, she reached out to a functional dietitian and worked on her nutrition to improve her hormone health. After this experience and seeing first-hand the impact that nutrition can have, she decided to become a dietitian to help patients improve their health and overall well-being using nutrition and lifestyle interventions. While her passion and first love in nutrition is women’s health, including pregnancy, fertility, PCOS, and thyroid health, Anna enjoys working with and welcomes all types of patients with various health goals.
Anna’s approach to nutrition is holistic, and she prioritizes helping clients make sustainable, manageable changes in their nutrition and their lifestyle, including sleep, stress, and general wellness. She brings strategies from both traditional and functional medicine to give clients the tools they need to live healthier, more fulfilling lives, unencumbered by their symptoms.
