Hi! I'm Kate - Your Kidney Dietitian.

Diagnosed with kidney disease and feeling lost?
I get it. Getting a new diagnosis is incredibly scary. And it’s just too easy to go down that rabbit hole of endless Google searches, worrying about all the unknowns, and feeling confused about the things you’re reading, or things people might be telling you.
What you need to know is that there ARE steps you can take to improve your kidney health — so you can continue to live a fulfilling, enjoyable life full of all the things you love! You just need a personalized strategy & guidance on how to get there. That’s where I come in!
What I Offer You
Imagine your day going like this…
After waking up feeling energized, you prepare your kidney-healthy breakfast with ease.
You head out to shop at your usual grocery store (no need to go anywhere special), and your shopping trip is a breeze because you know just what to buy and exactly what to look for on food labels.
A friend texts to invite you out to dinner this weekend, and you enthusiastically say “YES!” because you know you’ll be able to navigate the menu offerings at the restaurant.
Your nephrologist calls and tells you how great your latest labs are looking! And you *finally* have a good understanding of how to read your own bloodwork, and how those numbers are connected to what you eat.
This can be your reality. I will help you get there!

My fair & equitable pricing model is based upon the premise that financial resources, including income, are not and should not be the only determining factor in whether or not someone can access services/care/etc.
