hey there friend -

Hello & welcome! Glad you've found my corner of the internet.

Kate here – dietitian, designer, and web developer. In my 10+ year career as a dietitian I’ve always sought out every little opportunity to flex my design muscles – creating handouts, posters, bulletin boards, and eventually the website for Your Kidney Dietitian, my private practice.

Cleanliness, a strong visual flow, and a touch of playfulness are at the core of my design philosophy. Despite having no formal training in design or web development, I know what catches my eye and how to replicate that feeling on the screen.

My Journey Here

My career as a dietitian has led me all over the map within the nutrition space…. and somehow I’ve always sprinkled in a little design funsies wherever I could.

Over the years as an RD, you could have found me…

  • designing bulletin boards & pricking babies’ fingers to check their hemoglobin in a WIC office
  • teaching diabetes classes and creating patient education handouts that *actually* looked nice at a rural hospital (sorry, marketing department for going rogue)
  • working on a complete visual and branding overhaul of the hospital weight management program
  • developing & presenting engaging wellness presentations to fellow hospital employees
  • convincing the whole dietitian team we should wear matching scrubs instead of business casual attire, to better identify our department (my greatest legacy)


And that was just in the first 3 years…!

Or perhaps you might have found me…

  • running grocery store tours, writing blog posts, and doing media gigs on the morning news as a retail dietitian
  • building interactive lobby displays and managing bone mineral medications as a renal dietitian
  • designing 25+ handouts, a 6-hour course, AND my own dang website as a private practice RD (whew!)


I’ve done it all and enjoyed it all (for the most part). Somehow I’ve always felt drawn back to the power of design to properly convey a feeling or an idea.

In 2022, I decided to start putting my design knowhow to work for fellow RDs, first by offering my CKD educational handouts for sale on RD2RD.

In 2023, I decided to finally delve into web design & development for fellow RDs – a longtime passion finally fully realized. And here we are!

More About Me

Aside from dietitian & design stuff, things I enjoy include…

Travel

I've loved visiting cities like Barcelona, Paris, Gotenburg, San Francisco, and Montreal. A trip with city sights and scenic views is where it's at for me! My husband & I hope to visit Japan in 2024.

Cats

We have two adorable cats at home, Clarence and Mia, and we usually have 2-3 foster kitties around as well! We foster for a wonderful group called Forever Fortunate Felines .

Running

As a kid I hated running, but somehow I ended up being that person who runs marathons. I've done three so far, plus a number of half marathons, 10Ks, 5Ks, and other random races.

Food

I'm a dietitian who LOVES to eat - as long as it is plant-based. I've been vegan for 8 years and I'm always down to check out any new & interesting veggie options.
