Meet the Team

Kari Collett, RDN, LDN, CLT
Owner/Licensed Dietitan

Kari’s enthusiasm about health and nutrition is incredible! Once you meet her, you’ll understand more about her deep-rooted passion for the power of food and nutrients. This passion started over a decade ago when Kari hit a major life roadblock. Instead of giving up, Kari took up marathon training. All that running made her hungry! Having to eat more pushed her into looking more closely at how food affected running performance. Not only did she discover that eating the right foods could improve her running time, but they also shortened her recovery time. Fascinated by her experiments and research, she found herself diving deeper into other aspects of food: agriculture, production, processing, and more. Before she knew it, she was in love! And pursuing a new career.

Today, Kari is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian specializing in functional nutrition. With additional training specific to food sensitivities, she is also a Certified LEAP Therapist. Coupling education from the College of St. Benedict and Iowa State University with life experiences, Kari helps people reach optimal states of health and function. She is diverse in the population she serves in that she provides individualized nutrition services for those with food sensitivities, chronic pain and disease, weight loss goals, athletic performance goals, and more using whole food therapies, supplements, and mind-body exercises for the health and healing of clients.

Kari’s passion is inspiring! You’ll love working with her, and you’ll love the outcomes you obtain through your unique nutrition plan.
