KristineReed, RD

Kristine’s relationship with nutrition came at a young age when her brother became a serious wrestler in high school and she became a serious distance runner. It was a struggle to plan meals to them feed both in a way that would support their athletic goals. The wrestler would be eating salads and the runner would be eating everything in sight!

Kristine went on to study nutrition at Rochester Institute of Technology. She didn’t just want to help heal people, but really FEED people. She found diet culture to be very contradictory to everything she was learning in her studies. Knowing that eating is a very social and emotional activity, she wanted to show people the joy that a well balanced diet of your favorite foods could bring!

At college she ran on the cross country and track team. She made her teammates fill out food logs and meet with her and her professors to discuss their nutrition goals and habits. She worked at the university gym as a nutrition counselor, meeting with students and athletes to provide education and guidance with their meal plans on campus. She changed the culture on the women’s running team from “thin=fast” to having a designated locker just to fill with healthy snacks for before/practice.

Upon finishing college and the dietetic internship, she began working in hospitals. She enjoys educating patients and staff on the importance of nutrition and even more importantly, feeding and nourishing the sick!

Kristine still enjoys running and fitness as a part of her daily routine. She is currently training for the Boston Marathon and has to remember every day… eating is training too!


 

HenleyOfficial Therapy Dog

Henley is a physical activity junky! She’s all about running, jumping, chasing Frisbees, climbing hills, and going full tilt at all times. She’s half convinced she can fly and has been spotted at the local superhero store sizing up capes—probably something with a big “H” on the back so you know it’s her!

You’ll see her hanging out at our offices from time to time where she likes to stay abreast of all things physical therapy. She’s serious about making sure her body function like a fine-tuned Ferrari and knows that Feldman Physical Therapy and Performance holds all the secrets.

Look for her on the podium at the next Dog Olympics!
