My name is Kathleen Ascanio. I am a registered dietitian practicing in the state of North Carolina. I graduated with my bachelor's degree in Nutrition Science in 2017 and then went on to the University of Alabama in Birmingham to obtain my master's degree in nutrition science.
I found a love of nutrition and helping people through nutrition and food because of my own love of food.
Approach to care
My approach to care is taking the time to understand my patients, their needs and their goals. Each patient's plan and recommendations are highly individualized.
I aim to be an educator, a problem solver, and a patient's support system while they are working towards their nutrition goals.
What to expect in your first session with Kathleen?
I like to take a deep dive into what you've done in the past and where you want to go. I enjoy taking time to get to know my patients as this helps us work together to formulate a plan that you can stick with. As dietitian I believe that all foods fit. You will never hear me recommend a fad diet and I will never judge you for you food choices.
