About Kelsey

Kelsey is a registered dietitian specializing in nutrient dense, whole-foods diets for patients with a variety of conditions. Kelsey graduated from New York University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition and Dietetics and went on to complete her dietetic internship at Milford Regional Medical Center in Milford, Massachusetts. She is currently completing her Master of Science degree in Nutrition and Functional Medicine from the University of Western States. Kelsey recommends individualized diet therapy focusing on biologically appropriate diet principles to aid her clients in losing weight, gaining energy, and pursuing continued health. She is a firm believer that everyone is different, and she tailors her plan for each and every individual. Through her work, she aims to meld the dietary wisdom of traditional cultures with the latest science in integrative and functional medicine to create plans for her clients that work in the modern world.

Who should see a dietitian?

A dietitian can help anyone who wants to improve their body’s nutritional status. If you’re overweight, a dietitian can help you find a diet that induces weight loss; if you have an autoimmune disorder, she can help you quiet the inflammation that goes along with these conditions. Kelsey also has training in functional medicine, so she can educate you on particular supplements that may help, as well as any lab tests that might give you more information about your condition. Just note that dietitians do not diagnose or treat illnesses – they help you improve your nutrient status to assist your body in functioning its best.

Dietitians are also great for keeping you on track with your diet. Do you notice that after a while you start to slip back into old habits and just need a fresh start? Kelsey can keep you motivated and provide a fresh set of eyes to look at your case.

Kelsey’s special interests include:

  • Gastrointestinal health
  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Inflammatory disorders
  • Weight loss/gain
  • Metabolic diseases

  1. Hello my name is Doug Johnson and my Doctor has recommended me to see a nutritionist and your name came up. I only have one problem cannot seem to get a # off your website. Can you please contact me [email protected]
    Thank You

  2. Kelsey,

    Glad to see you here. I am a fellow student at UWS and am happy to see you working with Chris. I agree, online programs require lots of dedication, but am enjoying the process overall.

  3. Kelsey how did you like the Nutrition and Functional Medicine program at UWS? I am so interested in it but its hard to find out very much about it since it is such a new program. Would love to hear your thoughts!

    • Monica,
      I’m still in the process of going through the program. It’s an online program so it takes a lot of dedication to stay focused with it (at least in my opinion). However, many of our professors are experts in functional medicine, so you get a lot of great information.
