Ashley Besecker

RDN, CD

Ashley has been in practice for 10 years and is passionate about living a long, balanced, healthy and happy life. She believes that optimal health can be achieved even in the midst of real life challenges such as depression, anxiety, genetic risk variants and family history of medical ailments.

She assesses each clients individual story, health history, biochemistry and goals and pulls her expertise from multiple models of care such as Functional Medicine, the Bale Doneen Method for Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention and the Bredesen Protocol for prevention of Alzheimer’s Disease.  This provides clients with a well-rounded and evidenced-based approach to health.

Ashley is currently completing her Advanced Certificate in Genetics and Genomics at Stanford University.  She holds a Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Science from Pepperdine University and completed her Dietetic Internship at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Monroe Carell Jr Children’s Hospital.

She is the owner and founder of Crave Health, and lives on Mercer Island with her husband, 2 daughters and Boxer pup.  She loves wine, collects glassybabys, and yes, can even be caught eating pizza with her family on Friday nights!
