Katie is a functional diagnostic nutrition practitioner (FDN-P), a certified holistic health coach, and a burnout recovery specialist, helping her clients reorient themselves to a healthy, more peaceful and meaningful life.
Katie brings over 15 years of educating and coaching experience to her FDN practice. She “retired” from teaching high school English and PE over 10 years ago to stay home to raise her babies. Within a year, she got the itch for “more” and worked her way into leadership position in direct sales, where she educated, trained, and mentored women in business and life. With one more kid in tow and running, running, running, she shifted back home to slow down and to add yet another baby to the crew! Not really “slowing down!”
The rapid pace of her 20s & 30s left her with weird symptoms, exhaustion, anxiety, insomnia, and an inability to lose weight despite doing “all the right things” and getting “normal” bloodwork results. Throughout her journey, she researched, self-advocated, and kept pursing health. Finally, she realized that the "push through at all cost" lifestyle had been the driver of her symptoms, creating metabolic chaos.
It wasn't until FDN came into her life that she truly understood how to work in cooperation with the body God gave her instead of fighting against it.
Now, Katie is passionate about educating and empowering her clients to unleash their health potential while they also learn to appreciate and understand the body God gave them. It is her joy to accompany her clients on their journeys to be healthier and happier than ever before!
