For over ten years, Brittney Bearden has spent her career as a Registered Sports Dietitian, working at the collegiate and professional levels and most recently with Texas Health Sports Medicine. Her stops include Auburn University, Indiana University, the Golf Channel as a Sports Nutrition Contributor, and as a Consultant Sports Dietitian for FC Dallas, Dallas Wings, Southern Methodist University and the Dallas Mavericks, where she was the team's first sports dietitian.
A native of Whitewright, Texas, Brittney graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in Nutritional Sciences before obtaining her master’s degree in Exercise Physiology from Auburn University. She is a Registered Dietitian, Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics, and Licensed Dietitian in the state of Texas.
“I grew up playing sports and wanted to stay in sports. I love being a part of a team and the competitive environment. I also grew up baking and loving food, so thought the perfect job for me would combine sports and food/nutrition. At the time in high school, I didn't even know the term dietitian but I pursued the profession and learned a lot along the way,” said Bearden. “I'm thankful for the mentors and job opportunities I've had thus far in my career and really excited to now be working in sports nutrition tech.“
During her time working as a Sports Dietitian the best and most exciting game she’s ever been a part of was the 2013 Iron Bowl, the Kick Six finish with Alabama's missed field goal and Auburn's 109-yard return to win the game.
Bearden has been a member of the CPSDA (Collegiate and Professional Sports Dietitian Association) for 11 years and has served as a volunteer for the past 5 years. She also serves as a Mentor for the Gatorade Sports Fueling Project. Now at Notemeal, Brittney will be demonstrating the value Notemeal brings to Sports Dietitians and Division I Collegiate Athletic Sports Nutrition Departments.
