Make Dinner, Not War!
Hi! I’m Katie – a Registered Dietitian (RD) in Cincinnati, Ohio. I’m also a mom who enjoys feeding her child, a wife who loves being wined-and-dined by her husband, and a person who simply adores making and eating food.
As a food enthusiast, studying nutrition just made sense. So, in 2017 I received a BS in Nutritional Sciences from Howard University. After obtaining my BS and becoming an RD, I decided to switch gears and study psychology – not because I was abandoning my first love, food, but because I wanted to understand it from another angle. In 2018 I received an MSc in Psychology of Mental Health from the University of Edinburgh.
After moving back to the U.S., I became a clinical dietitian in long-term care. Like many dietitians, I found myself less than enamored with clinical practice. Though a wonderful learning experience (and gratifying in its own right), it just wasn’t where I saw myself forever. But, at the time, I wasn’t sure where in the world of nutrition I did see myself.
Then I became a mom and realized – this feeding business is fun! I looked forward to introducing my child to new foods and embraced the messy spirit of Baby Led Weaning. I began devouring books on developmental nutrition such as Ellyn Satter’s Feeding with Love and Good Sense and Bea Wilson’s First Bite. Most importantly, I had the pleasure of watching my child’s tastes expand and grow – a joy I hope to share with other moms and dads!
