She understands those who struggle with weight concerns, which include chronic dieting and weight cycling. She also enjoys seeing individuals with food allergies and digestive disorders.
After completing her Bachelor of Science in Dietetics at the University of Mississippi in Oxford, Mississippi, Teran obtained her Master of Science in Nutrition with a minor in Exercise Science while completing her Dietetic Internship from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennessee.
While working at a local hospital and dialysis clinic, Teran gained valuable experience in medical nutrition therapy.

Teran later served as a program and outpatient dietitian at an intensive outpatient program (IOP) for eating disorder treatment. In 2018, she also became certified as a Body Project facilitator.
Teran's training includes weight inclusive care, weight stigma and bias, body image work, trauma-informed care, Health at Every Size (HAES), somatic work, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) as well as a variety of therapeutic approaches including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Family Based Treatment (FBT)
