Kate Giles, MS, RD, LDN
Kate earned a BA in journalism from UMass Amherst and spent several years working in the magazine industry and social investment research before deciding to return to school to pursue a degree in nutrition. She completed her MS and dietetic internship through the Coordinated Program in Dietetics at Framingham State University, and has spent the past four years working at Lowell General Hospital as an inpatient, outpatient and community dietitian. She has experience with sports nutrition, digestive disorders, and working with clients struggling with weight and body image concerns. She also spent three years as an administrative and course coordinator at the anti-hunger nonprofit organization Cooking Matters Massachusetts where she implemented and led nutrition and cooking education classes for parents and families. In each of these roles, Kate has been fortunate enough to work with clients from diverse socioeconomic, ethnic and cultural backgrounds which has helped shape her conviction that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to nutrition counseling. Kate recognizes that each individual brings their own unique perspective and life experience to each session, and she works to empower clients to make meaningful lifestyle changes that are also realistic and sustainable.
