MEET KRISTEN, YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD NUTRITIONIST
Hi friends! I'm Kristen Rowe, and I'm so glad you are inviting me on your wellness journey. I am a passionate, Master's Level, Registered Dietitian who has been working in the nutrition field over ten years. After completing my Dietetic Internship at the University of Oklahoma, I returned to my home state of Arkansas where I started my career as an outpatient weight loss dietitian at the University of Arkansas Medical Sciences Center. From there, I transitioned into the corporate world where I developed the employee wellness program for Arkansas Blue Cross Blue Shield.
In 2015, my husband and I decided to make the big move to DC, and lived on Capitol Hill for five years. There, I had the opportunity to serve our community working for DC Public Schools, and ensuring our students ate healthy meals. Recently, just as the pandemic hit, we relocated to Charlottesville, VA. We've always loved visiting the city over the years, and are so excited to officially be residents. I now serve as a Subject Matter Expert for USDA Food and Nutrition Services in addition to counseling.
On the personal side, I love trying new restaurants around town, fashion (shout out Rent the Runway!), I'm coffee-obsessed, enjoy frequenting local wineries on the weekend, and I'm really into my boutique workouts- Barre 3 is my fave. I can't wait to learn more about you and your interests!
THE NEIGHBORHOOD NUTRITIONIST PHILOSOPHY
As a dietitian, I love working with clients to help them reach their weight loss goals and figure out how good nutrition habits can be easily integrated into their life. Between work, family, and social engagements, it's hard to find time for your health. That's where I come in. As the Neighborhood Nutritionist, I will come into your home (physically or virtually) and work with you to create a plan that works for YOUR lifestyle. Join me as we embark on this adventure to find the healthiest version of your own unique self!
