About Katelyn

I really enjoyed cooking and meals times with my family growing up. I experienced disordered eating while as a high school student athlete who was training not only with her team, but outside of practice as well. I had pushed my body too far without the right fuel and ended up injured. It was then that I started researching how to properly fuel my body and this ignited my love for dietetics. I was able to find something that was a combination of my love of food and my desire to work in the medical field.

What’s one small thing someone can do today to work toward a balanced eating pattern/lifestyle? I am a big advocate for taking a 5-10 min walk and replacing one soda with a water. It is the first steps that get us where we are going.

A habit you swear by: A glass of water first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

How has your cultural culinary heritage shaped your approach to nutrition, and do you incorporate any traditional practices into your counseling? Being from the South, our foods tend to be fried, breaded, and heavy on the butter. I enjoy taking those foods and putting a healthy but delicious spin on them.
