Kristen received her bachelor’s degree from Samford University and completed her dietetic internship and master’s program in clinical nutrition at the University of Alabama at Birmingham with an emphasis in maternal and child health.
After graduating she moved to Arizona and worked at an inpatient eating disorder treatment facility with children, adolescents, and adults for 3 1/2 years before joining the team at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. There she specialized in the treatment of patients with eating disorder, hematology, and oncology diagnoses. She also became very familiar with infant and child feeding difficulties as part of the clinical nutrition team.
She is thrilled to now be owner of Body and Soul Nutrition Counseling and have the ability to serve all three populations of clients – eating disorders, oncology, and infant and child feeding difficulties – in efforts to feed the body and nourish the soul of each client. As a Christian, Kristen has the ability and willingness to incorporate Christian principles into treatment when requested by the client.
Kristen lives in Peoria, Arizona with her husband Keith. She enjoys hiking, singing, reading, trying new recipes, traveling, and spending time with her friends and family.
