Emily Suttle is the new Miss Tennessee USA! Currently living in Nashville, Tennessee, this 26-year-old attended the University of Tennessee and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in nutrition in 2018. She then moved to Texas to complete her dietetic internship with Texas A&M University and became a Registered Dietitian in June of 2019.
With roots firmly based in Franklin, Tennessee, Emily felt strongly about returning to her home state to begin her successful career as dietitian. She is currently the campus Registered Dietitian for Vanderbilt University where she provides students with nutrition counseling, hosts nutrition education events, provides staff training, and works with chefs to provide balanced menus. Emily is incredibly enthusiastic about sharing nutrition education and promoting body acceptance to young women, while demonstrating to people of all ages the various ways they can positively affect their personal health by having a balanced relationship with food.
After dealing with a close family member's struggle with addiction, Emily is also passionate about being open about mental health issues and is looking forward to promoting this during her year as Miss Tennessee USA. She believes that understanding can be reached through vulnerable dialog and caring confrontation and is excited to travel the state in an effort to increase awareness on this important issue.
