Kate relocated back to the Fox Valley in 2015 ago after owning and operating a fitness and nutrition business in Portland, OR. Kate is a Registered Dietitian, Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics and holds a master’s degree in Exercise Physiology from Oregon State University. Kate originally graduated in Dietetics from the UW-Stevens Point before departing for the Northwest and a dietetic internship at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland. 

While completing her master’s degree, Kate opened Alameda Fitness Center and three years later, EDGE Fitness. Kate has a passion for teaching group exercise and taught many classes and programs at both businesses. 

Since 2011, Kate has also taught nutrition at the university level. In Oregon, she taught for both Concordia University and Oregon Institute of Technology.  She currently instructs at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh in the Kinesiology Department, where she also co-directs the Healthy Titans Program. 

In her spare time, Kate LOVES to run long distances and has successfully completed over 20 marathons including 4 Boston Marathons, multiple 50k ultras and a 50-mile ultra on the Pacific Crest Trail. She loves the unique challenge that each race provides and enjoys applying the science of her profession to the sport she enjoys most. This practical knowledge has helped her enhance her sports nutrition knowledge base and help athletes achieve their performance goals.

Kate loves to integrate all aspects of wellness in her nutrition coaching. She enjoys helping people get more out of their exercise and wellness programs by improving their nutrition. Having grown up spending much time on her grandpa’s farm, Kate is also a strong proponent for whole and local foods as a means for bettering health and supporting community.
