Her goal is for clients to feel seen, valued, and more at home in their body. She is Health at Every Size aligned and wants to help people learn the needs of their bodies with curiosity and compassion.
Movement has always been a big part of Kathleen's life. She has always loved play and movement and has had an awe-filled respect for the human body. She graduated from Meredith College with a B.S. in Exercise and Sports Science, and from UNC Chapel Hill with a M.A. in Exercise Physiology. In the fitness world, she has been a personal trainer, group fitness coordinator, exercise specialist, small group facilitator, and group fitness instructor. She wants to help clients discover the forms of movement that best serve their unique body and unique goals.
Over the past several years, the practice of Intuitive Eating has changed Kathleen's life. For years, she had disordered eating and a very unhealthy body image. She didn't think healing in these areas was possible until a therapist introduced her to HAES and Intuitive Eating. She realized that these were real pathways to healing and is so grateful. Over the past year she has been pursuing her Intuitive Eating Counselor certification. Training under Evelyn Tribole has been a gift and Kathleen is excited to walk alongside others in the practice of Intuitive Eating and the pursuit of healing their relationship with food and body.
Kathleen lives with her family in Raleigh. Her favorite forms of movement are hiking with her dog Lux, paddleboarding, tennis, and a good circuit class.
In addition to being a Personal Trainer and an Intuitive Eating Counselor, Kathleen is also a Tidal Instructor. Head over to the schedule to see when she teaches next!
