Katie is mom to two young boys, and is very excited to bring her experience as a registered dietician and wellness to her hometown, where she can help individuals and families looking to live a healthier lifestyle. After years in finance, she followed her passion for nutrition and wellness and spent time in NYC working with corporations on wellness in the workplace.

Katie is an organizer at heart, loves working with people, and is constantly coming up with creative ways to make eating more enjoyable for kids – and adults. We’re glad to have you back Katie!
