Education & Experience
Previously competing in half and full marathons, Crossfit, track and field, soccer, and as a rower for The Ohio State University, Katelyn has dedicated most of her life to the sports world. After numerous knee surgeries and a spinal fracture, Katelyn found a passion for nutrition and how food can be used as a tool to help prevent and repair injuries, as well as improve physical performance and health.
Katelyn has achieved both an undergraduate and graduate degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Kent State University, as well as completed 1,550 hours of supervised practice in her pursuit of becoming a registered dietitian. Throughout her internship experiences at Cleveland Clinic Akron General Hospital, Kent State University Department of Athletics, and many other sites, she has realized that nutrition should not just be used as a reactive treatment, but as a proactive necessity to achieving overall health and wellness.
Katelyn's goals with her future clients are to figure out the "why" behind their eating habits, increasing her clients' overall knowledge of basic nutrition, and working together to create a list of individual nutrition goals that ultimately leads to better performance - in and out of the gym. Katelyn uses intuitive eating principles and a nonjudgmental approach to help develop practical and sustainable lifelong nutrition habits and will never tell anyone that any food is off limits!
