Karen is a Registered Dietitian from South Florida. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from the University of Florida, Go Gators!
Karen grew up in a Colombian household and was always surrounded with people from different cultures and backgrounds. The one thing everyone had in common? The desire for community. Growing up in South Florida allowed her to see how food from all over the world brought people together and provided the opportunity to celebrate the beauty of each culture’s traditions. She loves learning about new cultures, new foods and how it plays a role in someone’s life and worldview. Here at Nutrition As Therapy she assists us with disordered eating, women’s health and diabetes management.
In her free time she enjoys reading, listening to podcasts and riding her bike.
Her favorite snack is dried figs with almond butter.
