Marcus Harris, Founder of Premier Dietetics
As a veteran of the United States Navy, Marcus Harris, founder and CEO of Premier Dietetics discovered his passion for weight lifting and training. It wasn't long before he began to live in the gym and yearn for growth and results. During his early years of training and lifting, he found himself trying every supplement and shake on the market. It wasn't long before he realized that what we put into our bodies is just as important as how we care for the outside. Marcus's interest in physique and fitness prompted him to pursue the path to becoming a physical therapist. However, he found that he was always drawn back to nutrition and the effects it has on our health.
During his nutrition and dietetics studies, he had the opportunity to intern in several different settings, including hospitals and assisted living facilities. These experiences helped Marcus to dial in his focus to preventative care. Now, Marcus has made it his mission to educate the community about the vital role nutrition plays in our overall health.
