About

My Approach

Eating well really does mean living well.  Eating well isn’t simply making the most nutritious food choices, it’s about nourishing your body and feeding your life. Eating well is about having a healthy relationship with food, fueling your body for maximum health and performance, and is sustainable for a lifetime. Our goal is to provide clients with plans and strategies that meet their individual needs and goals, providing the bridge between science and their plate. We can help you sift through the barrage of food and nutrition messages and work with the reality of your lifestyle to help you meet your goals.

You’re not in this alone

Dining with family and friends is part of what makes life enjoyable. It’s not just the big celebrations and holidays that bring us together, but lunches with a friend and weeknight dinners at home. We work to create strategies for our clients that are specific to them, but are also healthy and are easily incorporated into their lifestyle. We pay attention to the needs of the family and the importance of keeping food social.

Registered Dietitian Nutritionist

Kristin is a registered dietitian nutritionist who is all about helping people achieve their best performance, health and long-term wellness goals. Her interest in nutrition began when she was in her teens and a dancer in a pre-professional ballet company. There was a lot of talk about diets, but not much understanding about nutrition maximize performance. When the time came to go to college, Kristin aimed her academic pursuits toward finding the answers for herself, and so she could help others. She graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with a BS in Biology and a minor in Psychology.  After graduation, she was accepted to Drexel University’s graduate program in Human Nutrition and Food Science.  She completed her Dietetic Internship at the University of Maryland Medical Center and began her career as a clinical dietitian. Now, her practice centers on nutrition coaching and education, with an emphasis on performance nutrition. She is keenly aware of not only the nutritional impact of food, but also the psycho-social components of food, diet, and culture. In addition to her private practice, Kristin is the performance nutritionist for her alma mater, Mid-Columbia Ballet. She is an active member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, including the Sports, Cardiovascular, and Wellness Dietitians, and the Integrative and Functional Medicine dietetics practice group, as well as the International Association of Dance Medicine and Science. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their five children, travel, and hiking with her golden retriever, Duke.
