Sheri Barke is a Registered Dietitian specializing in eating disorders, sports nutrition, and wellness in the Santa Clarita Valley.
After receiving her Bachelor’s degree in Nutritional Sciences from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Sheri earned a Master’s degree in Public Health from UCLA while simultaneously completing her Dietetic Internship at the West Los Angeles VA Medical Center. Early in her career, she was named “Recognized Young Dietitian of the Year” by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics for her innovation, dedication, and leadership promoting healthy eating and positive body image in the community.
For almost 20 years, Sheri worked in college student health (first at UCLA and then at College of the Canyons), providing individual nutrition counseling to students, teaching numerous workshops, and coordinating the Body Mind Wellness programs on campus. She also created a unique college nutrition course which effectively reduces disordered eating attitudes and behaviors and has transformed hundreds of students’ lives. Currently, Sheri owns a private nutrition counseling and consulting practice in Stevenson Ranch, where she lives with her husband, two children, and beloved rescue dog “Daisy.” She serves as the Sports Dietitian Consultant for the NBA G-League South Bay Lakers, Performance Dietitian Consultant for the CalArts School of Dance, and Eating Disorder Consultant for Clearview Treatment Programs.
Sheri grew up in the Santa Clarita Valley and has fond memories of her dancing years on the award-winning Saugus High School Dance Team. She is passionate about helping kids, teens and adults fuel their bodies for optimal performance in school, sport, and life, while also developing a positive relationship with food, exercise, and their bodies. Having overcome many personal life challenges, Sheri has grown to value balance, authenticity, resiliency/grit, and meaningful connections in life. She nurtures these in herself by scheduling frequent FUN and challenging hiking adventures to the most beautiful, awe-inspiring places in nature with her amazing “trail friends.” So far, she has experienced the thrill of hiking to the top of Yosemite’s Half Dome and Zion’s Angel’s Landing, and she has successfully climbed the tallest mountains in Southern California, including Mount Whitney, the highest point in the contingent U.S., making new friends and sharing stories of strength and wisdom along the way.
