    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.

About this pro

Are you ready to break the cycle of dieting? As a Registered Dietitian, I have the knowledge and experience to create a powerful partnership with you as you start your journey to wellness. I'm passionate about creating health, not just preventing disease, and working with you on your personal health goals to create a sustainable lifestyle change. I have experience working with clients for weight management, diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular conditions, GI conditions, food allergies and sensitivities, sports nutrition, family nutrition, corporate wellness, and more. Individualized health is all about you - no cookie-cutter meal plans here, just straight-forward, evidenced-based, and credible nutrition advice that's practical for real life. I take great pride in bringing unbiased, safe, and practical information to my clients. The most rewarding moments are witnessing the "ah-hah" realizations that good health is not out of reach. I love working with those who are motivated to make changes and serious about reclaiming their health or achieving results. The field of nutrition is diverse and exciting, which means each and every one of my clients brings an opportunity to play, learn, and explore together in the world of food and wellness.

    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.
    Coverage Area for Street Smart Nutrition is about 1+ miles of Mission, KS.
