Katie obtained her Bachelor’s degree from Furman University in SC in 2010. She has been a personal trainer, boot camp instructor, health coach, and physical therapy technician. Motivated by a lack of results she often observed in clients and patients in these fields, she enrolled in science pre-requisite classes, and applied to graduate school to find the underlying causes behind health obstacles.
Katie will graduate in March 2017 with a Master’s of Science in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine, then go on to earn her Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS), an advanced practitioner credential. She practices functional medicine: a patient-centered approach of addressing the root causes of dysfunction in the body to restore optimal health. This type of medicine is able to address conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, impaired adrenals, autoimmunity, IBS, and others that conventional medicine is ill-equipped to treat. Katie uses questionnaires, laboratory testing, and listening to her clients’ stories to reveal their underlying dysfunctions, then uses coaching, education, and evidence-based treatment plans to correct the imbalances and allow the body to thrive. In her free time, Katie enjoys hiking, traveling, and trying out new allergen-free recipes that her clients can use.
