Katie obtained her Registered Dietitian (RD) license March 2004 and has worked as an outpatient dietitian ever since. She worked at Mission Hospital from 2002-2011 where she performed Medical Nutrition Therapy for individuals of all ages, infants to adults, and for any diagnosis. These treatments required her to interpret lab results and designing care plans for patients. Following Mission Hospital she started working in Mission OBGYN office and specialized in women’s health and pregnancy nutrition. In November of 2011 she also received a Certification as a Diabetes Educator  and with the combination of all her skills continues to see patients privately. A few years later in 2013 she became the Program Director for a Weight Management Program at UCI Health, where she currently is still the Director.

At Genesis Katie conducts seminars, classes, private sessions, online sessions and customizes programs for both our athletes and non-athletes of all ages.

“Helping Others improve their quality of life is extremely rewarding and my main goal. As a mom of two daughters I try to set a good example by staying physically active and eating healthy. I coached both of my girls in soccer for many years. Battling exercise induced asthma since a child, I overcame my fears of long distance running and have ran 3 full marathons and over a dozen half marathons and Ragnar relays. On the weekend I attend my girls sporting events and get to the beach as often as I can.”
