Meet Your Dietitian
First... Let's meet you!
Are you feeling stuck in a rut?
Are you too BUSY to keep up with your nutrition?
Feel like you need simpler steps to get you where you want to be?
Need ideas that will not only save you time but also STRESS and money?
If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, keep reading to find out how we can work together!
I'm Mary-Catherine, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, here to help you navigate health and nutrition, wherever you are in life! Based in the Fort Campbell, KY / Clarksville, TN area, I am a military spouse who understands the unique challenges of this lifestyle - from inconsistent schedules to constant deployments and field trainings.
Health and wellness are a right to all, not a privilege. It is my duty to help you develop a healthy relationship with food and physical activity so that you can live your best life.
I work with clients who can invest at least THREE months of their time. Why? Research shows that it takes 66 days for a new behavior to become automatic. I want to be there to support you through any obstacle you may face.
Central to my mission is to meet my clients where they’re at. This means that:
YOU are the center of your nutrition plan! All of our sessions are individualized -- tailored to you, your lifestyle, family dynamics, schedule, medical history and nutritional status.
While I am based in the Fort Campbell/Clarksville area, all appointments can be done virtually so that you can connect from anywhere, whether you are working, lounging at home, traveling, or sitting by the pool, beach, or other relaxing seascape.
We will work together to create goals that are realistic for you AND come up with healthy rewards (did someone say massage?!)
A Little Bit More About Me…
I’m a dietitian by trade and knew nutrition to be my calling since middle school (I know – a long time ago!).
This career path was an easy choice for me. I went from being bullied for my weight to nearly losing my life from starvation and over-exercising. I have now found that balance and want to help you develop a healthy relationship with food as well!
I graduated from Texas Christian University (Go Frogs!) with my Bachelor of Science in Nutritional Sciences through the Coordinated Program in Dietetics. To sum up all the words, I completed my degree while also completing over 1200 hours of required supervised practice to become a dietitian. Within a few weeks of graduating, I took the national exam to earn my credential as a Registered Dietitian (the “RD” behind my name). I then moved to Boston to pursue my Master of Public Health. I achieved this degree at Boston University School of Public Health while working full-time at a large academic medical center in obesity and diabetes clinical research. I really enjoy working with individuals with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, as nutrition plays such a huge part in managing your blood sugar! I relocated to Tennessee in 2019 and provide both in-person and virtual services.
