About Your RDN
Hey there! I’m Katie, Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) and Certified Personal Trainer. I received my Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from Fontbonne University and Master’s Degree in Nutrition & Dietetics from Eastern Illinois University with a focus in Nutrition Education. As a Dietitian, I help individuals incorporate mindful & intuitive eating while reaching their health and fitness goals. My goal is to make nutrition education fun and low-stress, while helping people develop a healthy relationship with food and avoid developing disordered eating habits.
As for my personal life, I’m originally from rural Illinois, and moved to Colorado in 2019 (and absolutely love it here)! I live in the mountains just outside of Denver with my fiance, and four fur-babies!
You might know me as a content creator on YouTube, and various platforms like Tiktok & Instagram! In addition to creating content on YouTube, I'm obsessed with painting my nails, listening to self-improvement-focused podcasts and audiobooks, and snuggling with my furbabies! For those of you personality Meyer's Brigg's personality typing nerds (like me!) I'm an INFJ!
I first became interested in nutrition after healing from an eating disorder as a teenager. Once I began learning about nutrition and healthy habits (from a non-disordered eating lens), I experienced a mental and physical transformation that changed my life. I can honestly say, learning mindfulness and intuitive eating transformed my life, and healed my relationship with food. My #1 goal as your dietitian is to give my clients the support I knew I needed in my own recovery journey. I want to make nutrition simple and intuitive, so you can live your life in the healthiest way possible, without obsessing over it or letting in take over you life!

So why "Dark Blue"?
Where does the "Dark Blue" come from in "Dark Blue Nutrition"? Great question!
To any music lovers out there, the idea originated from a song "Dark Blue" by Jack's Mannequin (any Something Corporate or Jack's Mannequin fans in the house?) As a color nerd, the theme of "dark blue" stuck with me.
All colors have a certain energy to them, and I truly believe colors significantly impact our feelings and our mood. In the world of energies and chakras, the color dark blue is associated with our "third eye", e.g. our inner wisdom and intuition, hence how I found Dark Blue Nutrition to be so fitting! For you, I want nutrition to be something that can be fun, judgement-free and communicated in a way that embraces openness and curiosity.

With love & good vibes,
