What Katie's clients are saying about her
"Katie systematically guided me through a process to identify food sensitivities in my diet, identify missing vitamins and minerals and determine proper supplementation, and also helped with meal planning including pre and post workout meals. I’ve attended her lectures on ‘Performance Nutrition’, ‘Avoiding Dining Out Disasters’, and ‘Fighting Cancer with Your Fork’. She is passionate about her work and very conscientious in every aspect of it from working 1-1 with clients to teaching in a group setting. Thanks Katie for the ‘tune-up’. I’m running better than I have in years!"
"Katie is a great resource for my son who swims at least 6 times per week. He needed to hear how important nutrition was from someone other than his parents and Katie was the right one. Being an athlete herself, she immediately had credibility with Ben and he took her advice and implemented a lot of it. Her suggestions are helping Ben keep up his energy and he is staying healthy during his intense training. It also helped me make sure I was putting the right food at the right time in front of him. I highly recommend even just one session with Katie, but we will be touching base with her on a regular basis."
"I can't thank Katie enough for getting me started on the path of proper nutrition. Without Katie, I would still be overweight, confused, and unhappy with who I am. I regularly reference the information she provided me."
