Integrative Nutrition Health Coach
While earning her Master’s Degree in Epidemiology, Katie conducted research on factors impacting family planning decisions among women in rural Guatemala. Upon graduation, Katie worked six years in US-based health care systems evaluating preventative health and disease management initiatives across various population segments.
