Karen Kennedy is a functional nutritionist seeing patients via telehealth.
After working in the field of immunology and cancer research for 10 years, Karen changed gears and became a certified nutritionist in 2001. Around the same time, she began studying yoga and meditation which cultivated a better appreciation for a more holistic view of health.
Karen received her bachelor’s degree in molecular biology and biochemistry from Western Washington University. She did additional graduate training in immunology at the University of Washington, then went on to receive her master’s degree in clinical nutrition from Bastyr University.
After taking some years away from work to homeschool her children, she became board certified in integrative and functional nutrition to have a broader toolbox for her clients. She now helps both women and men with their nutrition and specializes in metabolic health, pre-diabetes, type 2 diabetes, and digestive concerns like IBS, SIBO, reflux, and bloating.
Karen doesn’t promote any specific nutritional philosophy other than using a whole foods approach to whatever works for the individual.
“I really love empowering people with the information they need to be healthier. Especially when people stop fighting their biology and start learning how to nourish themselves…. That’s why I love my job.”
When she isn’t working, she still spends an awful amount of time around food. She loves to cook and garden. She also likes to do yoga, hike, do crosswords, and go to the beach whenever she can. And you’ll never see her without her cattle dog.
Karen is in private practice and you can make appointments with her by contacting her directly. Please see her website for more details or just call for a free 30-minute phone call to see if she’s a good fit for you.
