Meet Your Guide:
I’m Shannon Rittenhouse, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner® and Founder of TruNorth Nutrition. Practicing as an NTP and wellness-guide has been a destined career path for me. I have always been a hustler, a burn-the-candle-at-both-ends person, that has often compromised my own health for the result of ‘progress’.
Following my passion and stewardship for better health has actually birthed a second career path for me. I have a degree in public relations and advertising from Penn State University, and previously, I worked representing a variety of health and wellness brands for numerous advertising agencies. To the outside world, I had it all. I ‘perfected’ the balance of a high-stress career, completed numerous marathons and half marathons, owned a beautiful home, had a great family and a generous paycheck. My body, which was constantly in motion, began to show signs of needing proper fuel and most importantly… rest. Through a series of tipping-point moments, I began to make the pivotal life change to regain my health, and become an ambassador to others; leading clients on path to greater health and wellness.
I bring a unique perspective to TruNorth Nutrition mixing a holistic approach of food, sleep, exercise and stress-mitigation all with a realistic lens. Most importantly, I believe the best way to increase your health is to be an informed advocate for yourself. This includes introducing you to tools and providing scientifically-based information so you can make informed decisions for your body. I’m dedicated to guiding you on this journey to wellness one fork-full and deep breath at a time.
Yours in health,
