Kaitlin’s interest in nutrition peaked when she was in college. She had always struggled with her weight, and had tried many unhealthy methods of weight loss. Her sister, who is a Registered Dietitian, showed her the value of eating balanced meals and exercise. As Kaitlin became healthier, she realized that she wanted to help others achieve the same goal. She switched majors, and graduated with a BS in Nutrition and Dietetics from West Chester University in 2013.
Kaitlin's career began in nutrition and weight loss counseling. She enjoyed being able to connect with clients, getting to the root of their nutritional issues, and helping them reach their goals. From there, she entered the food service management field, starting in the K-12 setting. Planning monthly cafeteria promotions, and discovering student's preferences, allowed school meal times to be both nutritious and fun! Kaitlin then entered long term care food service management, and sought to bring savory, delectable meals to all residents.
Through all these experiences, she realized her passion was in building relationships with people, and helping them see their own potential. She decided to come back "home" to nutrition and weight loss counseling!
