Kelsey is a registered dietitian who believes it is a basic right to be liberated from the grip of diet culture. Kelsey is always excited to work with her patients and support those who are choosing to reclaim their lives from their eating disorder and disordered eating behaviors. Kelsey counsels through a weight-inclusive, Health at Every Size-informed, and intuitive eating aligned lens. Through this scope, Kelsey holds an appreciation for the ability to manage health conditions without an emphasis on weight. It also means she has an appreciation for the intersections of mental health, physical health, and social determinants of health. She applies this lens to patients who are experiencing medical conditions that have evidence-based nutrition implications and are, therefore, seeking medical nutrition therapy.
Kelsey is a certified lactation counselor and is able to support parents in nourishing their infants. Having worked in child and maternal nutrition for three years, Kelsey enjoys supporting parents through various eating phases of infancy and childhood. She enjoys working closely with families and learning how to best support each family’s cultural beliefs, values and needs. It is her joy to champion the development of peaceful relationships with food in little ones and alleviate the worries that accompany feeding them.
Kelsey completed her undergraduate degree in Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of North Florida, where she is currently finishing her Master of Science program in Dietetics. Kelsey has a background in clinical nutrition, community nutrition, and eating disorder treatment at partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient levels of care.
In her free time, she enjoys lifting weights, taking jujitsu classes, gardening, trying new recipes, exploring thrift stores and spending time with her family, and her cats (Frank and Lavender.)
Kelsey sees all of her patients for the beautifully dynamic individuals that they are and hopes to empower them to have a more peaceful, if not joyful, relationship with food, movement and their bodies. Kelsey’s goals are to make patients feel seen, heard and understood, and to meet her patients where they are with evidence-based and compassionate care.
