Who Am I?

 Past employment experience includes: Online Nutritional Director of a Professional Continuing Education Company, State of Michigan WIC Manager, State of Michigan Long Term Care Surveyor and Trainor, Chief Clinical Dietitian, Outpatient Diabetes Program Coordinator, Nutrition Specialist in Oncology/ICU and all High Risk cases, Gestational Diabetes Program Coordinator, Wellness Program Coordinator at rural and corporate levels, professional speaker, and Instructor at both Michigan State University and Lansing Community College. 

Nutritional Synergy will combine modalities to provide education, support, and coaching to lead participants into a life of better health through offering innovative and personalized treatment plans.

Virtual Nutritional Synergy, Kathryn's newest client focused effort, currently offers the following services: writing, content review, free virtual visits on supplement use, and the provision of professional strength, hypoallergenic sources of supplements to meet a variety of needs.The site provides access to a health library, blogs,& daily nutrition information in the supplement store. Projected efforts are focused toward the addition of telehealth consulting with access to a variety of complementary and integrative services.

Kathryn considers herself as a strong advocate for the promotion of the recognition of professional "credentialled" or "licensed" nutritionists, not the "nutritionists" produced by colleges that do not provide the education needed to actually entertain the title of "nutritionist".   Our profession is regulated and has oversight. Consumers should be able to put more trust in those that are properly educated, trained, competency tested,certified by an organization with requirements to maintain current in the field and are bound by ethical standards and obligations, such as an RD or RDN.
