Hayden James, RDN

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

Hayden James, the individual driving satiate nutrition, is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist based in Salt Lake City, Utah, a recent transplant from Tulsa, Oklahoma. As an avid runner, rock climber, and skier, Hayden’s nutritional passions lie in sports nutrition. Hayden emphasizes an all-foods-fit approach to nutrition, because she enjoys French fries as much as kale. 

Hayden left her full-time gig in a busy pediatric & adult endocrinology clinic to spend the Summer 2019 living out of her Honda Element with her husband. They traveled the western part of the United States, rock climbing, hiking, and adventuring along the way, before settling down in SLC where she now works in an adult, outpatient endocrinology clinic. Hayden also has experience working with youth athletes, having led a sports nutrition program for the Climb Tulsa youth climbing team from Fall 2018 to Spring 2019.
