Katelyn is passionate about helping individuals develop sustainable eating habits that support their physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Recognizing that food can be a source of anxiety and shame and nutrition can feel complicated, Katelyn’s mission is to help others discover a pattern of eating that’s enjoyable, intuitive, and flexible.
Combining her knowledge and experience in pediatrics, eating disorders, research, and counseling, Katelyn utilizes an evidence-based, individualized, and practical approach to nutrition and health. With curiosity and compassion, she helps clients work through their values, beliefs and challenges around food and supports them on their unique path to a more healthy, balanced, and authentic life.
In addition to her work at Metrowest Nutrition, Katelyn works at Boston Children’s Hospital as part of a multidisciplinary team to help children with insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes build healthy eating habits. She also works part-time at the Klarman Eating Disorder Center at McLean Hospital where she provides meal support, cooking classes, and food exposure challenges to patients with eating disorders and other mental heath concerns.
Katelyn received her bachelor’s degree in dietetics and minor in psychology from Syracuse University.
