MEET EKG

Elizabeth Kehoe

I was raised in the Chicago suburbs with a close-knit community and family that thrived around the kitchen table. At a young age, I developed a love for cooking and bringing people together over a meal. Over time, I fell into dietetics and nutrition as it was the perfect combination of food and fulfilled my science-minded curiosity, and I’ve never looked back.

 

I have been fortunate to work as a dietitian in a variety settings and have seen many different types of eaters. Through these experiences, I witnessed the power that nutrition has to improve people’s lives and have also seen the unintended consequences of people following unnecessarily restrictive diets. My passion is bringing comfort and joy back to eating, while making realistic and sustainable changes to improve overall health.

 

I graduated from Indiana University and completed my dietetic internship at Ingalls Memorial Hospital. I currently live in Old Town, Chicago with my fiance, Chris. We are both on a lifelong mission to try every pizza Chicago has to offer.

Katie Goldberg

I never met a vegetable that I didn’t like. I don’t eat salad because I’m a dietitian, or think that I should. I eat salad because I genuinely LOVE salad. Have no fear, I am equal opportunity when it comes to food, and I also love sharp cheese, dark chocolate, and really dry red wine. I believe all of those things are best enjoyed with friends or family over good conversation. I’m a former gymnast and current runner, and don’t sit still very well.

 

I have been a dietitian since 2013, and had the chance to work in a variety of settings. Through all my experiences, one thing remains true: I am passionate about helping people make real, sustainable changes to improve their health. I believe that there is more than one way to get there, and that creative problem-solving is key to making it happen.

 

I live in Rochester, New York with my husband and young daughter.

Why Work With a Dietitian?

A registered dietitian nutritionist, or RDN for short, is a food and nutrition expert responsible for translating the science of nutrition into everyday practical solutions necessary to lead a healthy lifestyle. RDNs have the expertise, training and credentials to separate fact from fad while offering sound advice about how a nutritious diet can improve health, fight disease and aid in weight management.

How is a Registered Dietitian different than a Nutritionist? The “RDN” credential can only be used by practitioners who are recognized by the Commission on Dietetics Registration of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Some registered dietitians call themselves “nutritionists” but not all nutritionists can call themselves “registered dietitians” as the RDN credential is a legally protected title requiring licensure, approved educational specifics and clinical experience. Some states have licensure laws that define the range of practice for someone titled a “nutritionist”, but not all. Be aware that in some states anyone can call themselves a “nutritionist” regardless of proper education and training. Consulting a registered dietitian guarantees you’ll received professional nutrition advice from an experienced expert.
