Meet Your Dietitian
I'm Mary-Catherine, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, here to help you navigate health and nutrition, wherever you are in life!
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.
Who I Help
Are you feeling stuck in a rut, too busy, or like you can't afford to make your health a priority? I'm here to help busy women like you achieve their nutrition goals.
If you’re here looking for someone who can support you in making sustainable changes, I’m the person for you! I work with clients who can invest at least 3 months of their time. Why? Because research shows that it takes 66 days for a new behavior to become automatic, and 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 tailored to you, your lifestyle, family dynamics, schedule, medical history and nutritional status.
All appointments are 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.
We will collaborate to identify what internally motivates you so that you are set up for success during and even after our time together
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 have had personal and family experiences related to weight stigma, overweight/obesity, eating disorders, and a variety of chronic diseases that were often partially managed through diet.
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 clinical research related to obesity and diabetes. I really enjoy working with individuals with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes, as nutrition plays such an instrumental part in managing your blood sugar! I relocated to Tennessee in 2019 and now hold licenses in 3 states – Tennessee, Kentucky, and Massachusetts!
