Meet the Dietitian
Welcome! I’m Kristen Wallace. I opened Columbus Nutrition Counseling, LLC during the summer of 2016. I am a Registered and Licensed Dietitian in the state of Ohio. I’m passionate about providing excellent nutrition counseling and education, eating disorder recovery, Ohio State football, and my sweet golden retriever, Chomper.
Graduating cum laude with my Bachelor of Science in Human Ecology, Dietetics from The Ohio State University was the beginning of my journey to becoming a dietitian. From there I moved to Phoenix, Arizona to complete my dietetic internship at the Maricopa County Department of Public Health and then came back to Ohio and to begin my career as a dietitian in 2012. I have been advocating for people working towards recovery from their eating disorders since 2006 on a personal level, and specializing in eating disorders professionally for the last 5 years, working in an eating disorder treatment center in central Ohio from 2014 to 2016 prior to opening Columbus Nutrition Counseling in 2016.
Nutrition and Treatment Philosophy
Wherever you are on your journey to find health, it is your dietitian’s job to meet you there and help you move forward. When you are here, we will work together to find balance in your eating and make sustainable lifestyle changes. Finding balance is important in all areas of life, nutrition included. My work is all about balance, finding flexibility in eating within a defined structure, balancing personal goals with professional knowledge, and optimizing the balance of macro and micronutrients within each individual meal plan.
