Sarah Maurer is a Licensed and Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist based in Durham, NC. She works with patients and corporate wellness clients online via telehealth.
Originally from Indiana, Sarah completed her undergraduate degree and dietetic internship at Purdue University, spending one semester in Perth, Australia. Sarah’s first full-time position landed her in Boston, MA, where she initially covered the behavioral health and medical-surgical units. As she grew in her clinical knowledge, she accepted the position as the ICU (Intensive Care Unit) dietitian and eventually as the Clinical Nutrition Manager (CNM) at Carney Hospital. Sarah found meaning in her work by being a source of comfort and care for patients in a vulnerable state. However, as clinical manager, paperwork increased and the time available to connect with patients declined. Although a management role seemed like a logical step in her career, she lost what made her love her job. Because of this, she decided to transition into nutrition counseling. She became the outpatient dietitian for MetroWest Medical Center Cardiac Rehab Center, and Fenway Health Medical Center.
As a high school runner, Sarah initially became interested in nutrition and its effect on performance. Yet her pursuit of health quickly became a place of pressure and preoccupation. Surrounded by walls of food rules, her health suffered. Through her own journey of healing, she became passionate about helping others find the balance of intentionality and flexibility with nutrition. Sarah specializes in food psychology, body image restoration, hormone balance, and fertility.
A foodie at heart, Sarah empowers patients to enjoy eating in a way that is life-giving and sustainable. One of her joys about being a dietitian is feeling inspired by her client’s insight, strength, and growth. Sarah enjoys reading in the morning with her coffee, having friends over for meals, and doing activities outside on a sunny day.
