Paige Gorges is a licensed and Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist working with patients and corporate wellness clients online via telehealth.
Originally from Wisconsin, Paige attended the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay to earn her Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Sciences and Dietetics. She also attended the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point to earn her Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Paige completed her dietetic internship at Nicholls State University, where she gained experience in rotations throughout the Ochsner Health System in Southern Louisiana. She also completed various community nutrition rotations with LSU Agriculture and Rouses Markets. There, she was able to combine her nutrition knowledge with the unique culture of Southern Louisiana for food and kitchen demonstrations.
Before Summerfield Custom Wellness, Paige worked as an outpatient dietitian for MUSC Florence Medical Center. While there, she primarily provided nutrition counseling to individuals and groups. She worked in the Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehab Center to assist patients in reaching their nutrition and health goals.
Paige has always been passionate about helping people, even before becoming a dietitian. After graduating high school, Paige struggled with several food intolerances and overall gut health. After several years of doing her own nutrition research, she decided to see a Registered Dietitian. This experience changed her life by helping her identify her intolerances and find foods to heal her gut. Because of this, Paige decided to become a Registered Dietitian to help others heal and reach their goals through nutrition.
Paige’s goal as a Registered Dietitian is to help people feel better in their own bodies and walk alongside their journey to a healthier, more fulfilling life. She wants to provide customized support, knowledge, and the tools patients need to successfully reach goals and build a healthier lifestyle instead of short-term fixes. Her areas of interest are gut health and weight management, including the utilization of functional and integrative nutrition approaches.
