Kate Cretsinger, CNC, is a Certified Nutrition Coach. Kate’s path to becoming a Nutrition Coach began during her own struggles of migraines accompanied by bloody noses. Kate suffered 23 years from unexplained rashes, stomach pain as well as many days of not being able to socialize due to severe stomach pain, headaches and joint pain that was located in her arms, hips, legs and feet. Kate became determined to take control of her own health through nutrition. And she did!! This is the best she has ever felt! In 2004, Kate graduated from University of New England with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science. She became certified as a Nutrition Coach by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2015. In addition, Kate has over 15 years of experience in the health & wellness field as a personal trainer, instructor and nutrition coach.
What Is a Certified Nutrition Coach?
A Certified Nutrition Coach is specially trained to educate patients about healthy eating and lifestyle choices, helping patients develop and set goals, and taking patient's good intentions and putting them into practice. Nutrition Coaches help navigate the overwhelming, contradictory, and at times completely inaccurate health tips found on the internet that is flooding our media.
Nutrition Coaches work in many settings and, among other services, provide general wellness and nutrition information, options, recommendations, guidance, motivation, and skill-building to establish healthier lifestyle routines and to achieve patient-focused personal health goals.
Kate has worked with individuals who suffer from chronic illness, Lyme disease, headaches, low self-esteem, the inability to maintain weight loss, and people who have bounced from specialist to specialist unable to find answers to their symptoms.
With Kate as your co-pilot you will work together to develop a customized plan which will assist you in successfully achieving your current health, lifestyle and wellness goals – and ultimately lead you to a permanent, positive change!
