Adding a new dietitian to the team is a wonderful thing for our clients! Here's a bit more on RDN Kayla Fitzgerald, Q&A style.
1. How did you get into dietetics?
Growing up I spent a lot of time in my Pap's garden. I would sit out there and just eat vegetables right out of the ground. My parents would take me (at 5 years old) out to eat and I would make a GIANT salad from the salad bar with no dressing on it and always told them that I just loved the way the vegetables tasted. As I grew older, my passion for health and wellness matured and led me down the path to the only career I could ever have imagined myself having....being a Registered Dietitian and helping people change the way they look at food in order to live a healthier life.
2. What is your favorite food?
3. Do you have any good food jokes?
Why does yogurt love going to the museum? Because it's cultured!
4. What is your favorite inspirational quote or mantra?

5. What meal does your family beg you to make?
Smiley Pockets (aka soft shell tacos that I make faces out of cheese on)
6. What do you do for fun?
I run, go on the boat with my family, spend time with friends, and cook.
