Street Smart Nutrition
My parents and sister are purchasing me Cara's services as a birthday present so I wont have an actualy review for a bit but I feel better just from talking to her and viewing all the amazing information on her website. Just from the phone consultation she was able to put together a good plan to help me overcome my issues with food. I have IBS and during my teenage years and young 20's I pretty much asssociated food with pain. Despite getting my IBS under control I have realized I find no joy in eating and see it only as something I have to do to stay alive. Having 2 small children has really opened my eyes to how much I am not equipping my kids with the tools they need to be healthy or a love of food or cooking. I am so excited to start making a solid investment in my health as well as my family's health.Jan 2, 2018Verified

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I generally charge for nutrition services by the hour, however, combining sessions into a package is a great value for the budget-conscious client. While it may appear that clients simply meet with me for 30-60 minutes, there is much more invested into my client behind the scenes. I assess and analyze their health and nutrition history, make individualized recommendations, and support clients in continued follow-up through phone or email after the session ends. That type of service is difficult to capture in a single hourly rate, so if you have questions about rates please do not hesitate to ask!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?For an initial consult, I sit down and get to know you - your health history, your relationship with food, your likes and dislikes, your routine, your goals - it's all about you. From there, I provide the information needed to answer any and all questions and together we develop a plan of action. No goal is too small or too large, all I ask from my new clients is a willingness to share, learn, and be open-minded through the process. Going forward, I provide the on-going support and accountability needed for lifelong, sustainable changes.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Master's degree in Clinical Nutrition through the University of Kansas Medical Center in Kansas City, KS. I am registered through the Commission on Dietetic Registration and licensed in the states of Missouri and Kansas. I actively participate and volunteer with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics on the national and state level, connecting me to a wide network of experts in the areas I specialize in, such as sports nutrition, media and communications, and recipe development and culinary nutrition. I participate in annual continuing education events to ensure I remain updated on the latest findings in the field of nutrition research. I have the knowledge and experience to then translate that information to you in a way that is practical and realistic to implement in real-life scenarios.
