Shawn Pitcher, MS, RD, LD, ISAK-1

Shawn Pitcher is originally from upstate New York. He played football collegiately at a division three school called Buffalo State University as a defensive tackle. Shawn holds a bachelors in dietetics and nutrition, a master’s in human performance and has completed one year of doctoral work in sports nutrition. He has worked at every level of athletics including, high school, division 1,2,3, NFL combine, private facilities and pre-Olympic athletes. Shawn’s philosophy starts with behavior change, establishing new routines and science back research. It is important that we put effort into understanding who the athlete is and their background to truly be able to implement the best plan of action to fit their specific need.

Shawn had two mentors that played a key role in his path towards discovering the field of sports nutrition. First it began with his high school teacher. This individual taught cooking class, home economics and nutrition, which are all almost non-existent in schools today, but play a critical role in developing key skills. She was able to set the groundwork for him and provide the guidance that nutrition could be a possible career. His second mentor came at Buffalo State. His professor exposed him to the field of sports nutrition when it was in its infancy. These two drivers allowed him to see the opportunities in the field and take advantage of multiple internships, and graduate assistant position that provide him hands on experience with athletes, coaches, and athletic performance staff

Shawn is passionate and dedicated in helping athletes reach their highest level. He encourages you to provide him the opportunity to gain your trust, prove his worth and allow him to make a difference not only in your athletes nutrition, but helping them become great young men and women in society.
