“I love to teach and help people learn how they can change their diet and change their life.”
I'm Kay, a renal nutrition expert and licensed Dietitian who genuinely loves educating and supporting my clients in any way I can. Growing up in Louisiana and Texas, I extend that southern hospitality with a warm welcome. Which means, I take extra care and time to provide information and make myself accessible as a trusted nutritional resource and support person for each client.
Here's a quick bit about me: The kidneys truly amaze me with all they are responsible for controlling in the body. I'm always learning something new. I have worked in renal nutrition for over 2 decades now and have found it both challenging and rewarding. Some of my favorite pastimes include traveling, cooking, shopping, writing, gardening, singing in my church choir, and spending time with family. I've worked on several cookbooks and write poetry and hope to publish something one day.
I'm passionate about cooking for my family and they always reward me by saying, "Grammy's food is the best!" Some of my favorite foods include, seafood, fresh fruits and veggies - such as fresh shelled peas, beans, sweet potatoes, squash, greens, tomatoes, pineapples, oranges, grapes, watermelon, and of course anything homemade.
I absolutely love my job, but my most important role has been to raise my two (now grown) children and being a grandmother to 7 and great-grandmother to one.
One of my top strengths is that I'm good at listening to my clients' needs and communicate dietary recommendations to them while being detailed oriented. As a three time cancer survivor, I'm a firm believer in the power of optimism. I always try to stay upbeat and remind my clients to laugh. I truly believe that dietary changes can result in a positive transformation, both in quality of life and kidney health
