Healthy Aging

There is more of a focus on healthy aging than ever!  Life expectancy has increased, and odds are you will live past 80. 

The population living to 100 and older is predicted to grow to nearly 3.7 million by 2050. This is up from just 95,000 in 1990!

About Kathryn Piper standing in front of a tree

Hi, I’m Kathryn!  I have 20+ years of nutrition experience working as a Registered Dietitian in a variety of healthcare settings.

My credentials also include Board Certification as a Health Coach.  In addition, I am certified through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in Weight Management.  

A Passion for Prevention

Obesity is a global health crisis, and is linked to many chronic diseases including Diabetes, Heart Disease, and High Blood Pressure.  

Being obese also decreases quality of life and is an early predictor of death.  

As a Dietitian, I see these chronic diseases often.  Unfortunately, Dietitians are often included once someone is already struggling with their health.  

Years of treating illness through Nutrition has sparked a passion in me for prevention!  

Obesity, Diabetes, and Heart Disease do not have to be part of your future!
