Meet Kirsten Thomas
Kirsten was born and raised in Yakima, Washington. She attended Central Washington University, acquiring a Bachelor’s of Science in Food Science and Nutrition with a specialization in Dietetics. Idaho State University brought her to the Boise area where she completed her post-baccalaureate internship. During this time she experienced a variety of dietetic disciplines but felt most drawn to the diabetic and weight management patient.
Typically, “I am not what people expect from a Dietitian; I hate the word diet and care less about what you ate and more about why you ate it. I aim to guide my patients; helping them explore a new lifestyle or mindset centered on food. I have found that when we better our understanding and more importantly our relationship with food, healthier choices fall into place naturally.”
She understands that food can be emotional. Combining that with a science background, her and owner, Katy Connley, MSN, FNP-C, BC-ADM work together to form a comprehensive team supporting diabetes management and weight loss.
Just as much as she desires food to be nutritious, she also wants it to taste good and spends time in her kitchen being creative with recipes. She would prefer to spend all her days in the mountains, mainly snowmobiling but when she can’t she’ll settle for hot springs, elk/deer shed hunting, and side by siding with friends. If she is forced in be in town you can find her at the gym or swing dancing.
