Katrina's Philosophy

Katrina believes that the secret to feeling your best is through fueling yourself with proper nutrition and engaging in physical activity. In our society, keeping up with the latest in nutrition is ever changing and challenging, even for a nutrition professional, that’s why Katrina is here to break down the barriers of understanding how to eat properly for your body. Katrina’s goal is to empower her clients to improve their health by making small, measurable, dietary and lifestyle changes that are realistic and feasible to maintain lifelong. Katrina tailors each of her sessions to focus on individualized goals for each of her clients and avoids the one size fits all approach because as we know, no two people are the same!

"Katrina has a sane approach to good nutrition and weight loss. She was kind, she put me at ease and did not make me feel ashamed..."

In addition to her work at NourishRX, Katrina is the Program Coordinator for the YMCA’s Diabetes Prevention Program at the YMCA of the North Shore. She also works as a consultant dietitian in skilled nursing facilities and adult day health centers. Previously, Katrina worked at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston as a Senior Bariatric Dietitian where she counseled and educated patients both pre and post weight loss surgery. Katrina is fluent in Spanish and embraces the ability to speak both English and Spanish with her clients. She is published in a peer-reviewed journal, Nutrition and Clinical Practice.  She enjoys networking and learning from other clinicians in order to provider her clients with the most up to date information and tools to succeed.

Katrina lives in Salem with her husband. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, traveling, exercising and trying new recipes!
