Hi! I'm Kelly!
I am a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN/LDN) and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS); a newbie foodie and an aspiring chef; a runner and a fitness fanatic; a devoted wife and a proud dog-mom; and an overall health and fitness enthusiast! I aim to inspire others to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle based on sound nutrition and daily physical activity, and I am here to help you achieve your health and fitness goals!
I am a Tampa-based Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist at Vitality Fitness in Tampa, Florida. I obtained my B.S. in Movement Science from Westfield State University and obtained my M.A. in Exercise Science from USF. I completed my second B.S. degree in Food and Nutrition from the University of Alabama in order to pursue my passion for Nutrition and became an RDN in June 2016. I started Fuel for the Soul, L.L.C. in August of 2015 in hopes to better serve my clients and to reach out to others in need of assistance along their path to achieving a healthy lifestyle!
Our philosophy at Fuel for the Soul is that your body is an engine; you need to fuel the body with the proper nutrients in order to keep it running at optimal levels throughout the lifespan. We truly believe that food is fuel and what you put inside the body shows on the outside - it's important to nourish the body in order to nourish the soul! Our favorite part of our job is talking with clients and helping them understand the importance of proper nutrition and daily physical activity in order to promote a healthy lifestyle and to see the drastic results of making their lifestyle behavior change. Life is not about being perfect 100% of the time! It all comes down to finding your own "perfect" balance, being comfortable in your own skin, and setting realistic goals. Let us help you achieve those goals and live the life you desire!
