Her job includes a wide variety of responsibilities, including 1:1 outpatient nutrition counseling (specializing in sports nutrition and weight management), teaching nutrition classes, and media opportunities. She can usually be found outside biking, or inside reading or catching up on favorite shows. When asked what she eats, Kristi states “Real whole foods with 80% good and 20% fun. There are no diets. Just eating food the way we were made to eat it”.
