Kathryn grew up swimming, biking and hiking along the shores of Lake Michigan from an early age. She became fascinated in nutrition during her freshman year of college and quickly changed her major to allow herself to shift into a career she was passionate about. She completed her undergraduate training in Dietetics from Michigan State University in 2007, her MBA in 2009 and then completed her didactic training at the University of Michigan School of Public Health. She then passed her National Board Exam to be a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and is a Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (LDN) in the state of Montana. She moved to Kalispell in 2021 to pursue her dream of living near the mountains. Her experience in the nutrition field spans from starting her career in the fitness industry, moving into corporate wellness, followed by clinical nutrition and food service management.
Kathryn is passionate about womens health/hormonal imbalances, free fatty acid metabolism, macros/macro cycling, weight management, weight loss, gut health and understanding the gut microbiome, aiding individuals with disordered eating patterns or eating disorders and truly aiding individuals to achieve their goals and feel confident in their own skin.
Additionally, Kathryn has an extensive background in fitness. She was AFAA/Yogafit/Zumba certified and taught group exercise classes (yoga, yogalates, spin, zumba, cardio kickboxin, and HIIT/bootcamp style classes) starting at a health club in 2008. During her years in corporate wellness she would travel to events throughout the United States teaching the workout classes and speaking as a subject matter expert for the supplement line and weight management product line. When Covid-19 shut down local gyms in March 2020 Kathryn decided it was a good time to take a break from teaching. Kathryn began running during her early college years and then began training for triathlons and longer road races while working on her Masters degree. Running continues to be a part of her life, but the frequency and distances have decreased, she enjoys the social aspect along with the cardiovascular benefits.
