There is much work that goes into the creation of a workshop, group or CEU evnet and often a wait list of eager participants. Therefore, it is necessary to have a consistent and fair cancellation policy for all involved. For cancellation requests received at least 24hours prior to the event start date, you will be charged $75.00 and refunded the balance of the workshop minus any credit card processing fees (3.75% +$.15). Cancellations received with less than 24 hours notice will forfeit the full enrollment fee. There are no exceptions to this policy.

Nutritious Thoughts

Asheville, NC

Katie Rhodes, RD, LDNClinical Coordinator

Katie Rhodes was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. She has taken the unconventional route with her education, beginning at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee where she graduated with a Major in Health and Minor in Education. Yearning for a change of scenery, Katie packed her bags for Bozeman, Montana where she fully embraced all the West had to offer her. While always having a strong interest in nutrition, it was the essence of Bozeman that influenced her to return to school to pursue a career in Dietetics.

After graduating with a B.S. in Food and Nutrition from Montana State University, Katie completed her Dietetic Internship at Lenoir-Rhyne University in Asheville, North Carolina. It was during her internship that Katie developed a calling and passion towards nutrition counseling and the specialty of eating disorders. Katie has since been pursuing her passion at Nutritious Thoughts, LLC and now holds the title of Clinical Coordinator. She is currently working towards her eating disorder certification (CEDRD) through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (iaedp) and serving her local non-profit, T.H.E. Center for Disordered Eating, as a vital board member. Katie truly looks forward to making a positive difference in the lives of those who walk through the doors of Nutritious Thoughts, LLC.
