Background

Kristy Thomas is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist. Kristy has a master’s degree in Human Environmental Studies from Southeast Missouri State University where she also served as an adjunct instructor teaching nutrition. This background in education has enabled Kristy to effectively teach clients by breaking down complex health topics into easy-to-understand concepts. You will walk away from your consultations with Kristy having a greater understanding of health and nutrition.

After her tenure at Southeast Missouri State University, Kristy spent nine years working at an in-patient psychiatric hospital on the chemical dependency and rehabilitation unit. Kristy has extensive experience helping patients heal through nutrition on their path to recovery from alcohol and substance abuse. At this hospital, Kristy was responsible for overseeing the medical nutrition therapy during their detox. Kristy also helped coordinate and develop healthy living group therapy sessions, focusing on life skills such as meal planning and cooking techniques. Kristy is accustomed to working with a diverse group of people, understanding that each person is unique. Kristy does not believe in a “one diet fits all” approach. Your counseling sessions will be tailored to meet your unique needs focusing on goals that are realistic, attainable, and sustainable.

Kristy also specializes in diabetes, weight management, heart disease, and gastrointestinal disorders with a special interest in bowel resections after colon cancer. Kristy’s interest in dietetics stems from witnessing several family members survive colon cancer and adapt to life after bowel resection surgery.

Kristy is passionate about continuing education to provide you with the latest evidence-based research. Kristy will spend time getting to know you, to better understand the nature of your concerns, and create a plan just for you!

In her free time, Kristy enjoys watching her sons play soccer and walking her goofy NewfyPoodle. Kristy is an international travel enthusiast, loves all things food, reading fiction, art and architecture, and the great outdoors.
