Sonya Atkins

MS Applied Clinical Nutrition-Bio

As the nutritionist at Backbone of Healthcare, I encourage individuals to take control of their health. The field of nutrition is growing rapidly as research shows that numerous chronic diseases and debilitating conditions can be avoided by lifestyle and dietary changes. By offering individualized science based recommendations to the people in our community I hope to improve their quality of life.

In 2012 I completed my Master of Science degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition. This program built on my science background-BS in Animal Science from the University of Missouri-Columbia. For over 25 years I have been living my dream of training and showing horses. I also coach students, am a mother of two and my husband, JB and I, operate a small commercial cattle operation. He is a Regional Manager for Vermeer Inc. in the agriculture division. Most recently we have spent time showing cutting horses and I train and run barrel horses as well.

Being a part of the team at Backbone of Healthcare with Dr Chad Hackel gives me an opportunity to help people live healthier lives. What is so good about being healthy? Choices!

Good health allows you to choose where you will go and what you will do with this wonderful life we have been given. I am so blessed to be living the good life in Central Nebraska!
