Krista Schaefer, MS, RDN, LD

Hi, I’m Krista. I am a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) and the founder of Modern Nutrition NW. I love food and connecting with people, which is why I started my business. I want to partner with you on your personal journey to achieving your health goals. Together we will create an individualized nutrition plan that I believe can be both enjoyable and impactful. I’ll offer current, well-researched education, resources and advice, and you will be the expert of you, knowing your unique challenges and lifestyle factors that we will need to navigate. Through this kind of partnership, the customized nutrition plan that we create can be a road map to achieving your goals and have a lasting impact on your overall health and well-being.

My practice supports a variety of health and nutrition related circumstances, including the following areas of special interest: eating disorders and disordered eating, diabetes, pediatric nutrition, sport nutrition, and weight management. Regardless of what brings us together, my commitment will be to honoring your past experiences and perspective, providing relaxed and comfortable care and empowering you with new tools and knowledge for making the changes you seek.

It’s time to prioritize your health, make an appointment and let’s get started!
