Katie Hawkins MS, RDN
Short Business Description

I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Licensed Be Body Positive Facilitator based in New Jersey. I specialize in providing medical nutrition therapy for individuals who have eating disorders or disordered eating. I am thrilled to support those who may not have a diagnosed eating disorder but feel unhappy in their current relationships with food, body and movement/exercise.

I am an anti- diet dietitian. This means I don’t prescribe diets unless you have a medical condition that requires specific medical nutrition therapy. If you do have a medical condition, I know how challenging it can be to maintain a positive relationship with food and your body while honoring your health and medical needs. I would love to help you navigate these challenges. I practice with a weight inclusive, Health At Every Size® approach. This means I care about the lived experiences you have had as a human with a body. I believe in nurturing a client’s inner wisdom and intuitive eating instincts. I am here to help you navigate a world rooted in diet culture.

I believe in you and I believe in your journey- whatever that looks like. I believe in recovery. With openness, education, kindness and support I believe you can achieve the freedom, confidence and peace you deserve to eat intuitively, move your body in a way that feels good and participate in your life to the fullest extent of your ability.

In my free time, I am an avid gardener and plant lady. I also love to read, travel, and experience new places, cultures and people- especially through food! I spend a good deal of time playing with my German Shepherd dogs.

I completed my Bachelor of Science in Dietetics at Ohio University. I then went on to obtain my Masters of Science in Clinical Nutrition at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science followed by completing a required dietetic internship with Nutrition Ink. I initially began my career as a dietitian working in endocrinology, working with individuals diagnosed with various endocrine conditions. I primarily worked with individuals diagnosed with Diabetes, both types 1 and 2 to navigate blood sugar management.

I then went on to discover my passion in working with eating disorders and disordered eating. I have several years experience working at the Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient levels of care for eating disorder treatment as the Lead Dietitian. I have supported both adolescents and adults from a diverse set of backgrounds and lived experiences on their recovery journey. I am also a licensed Be Body Positive Facilitator through The Body Positive.
