about me | confections of a dietitian

Welcome! I’m Kelsey, the author, baker, chef and photographer behind Confections of a Dietitian. I am a Registered Dietitian with a love for finding, creating and eating delicious food and treats. I’m currently living in Spokane, Washington as part of the adventure of a lifetime with my husband, son, and fun-loving dog. You’ll notice that a lot of my posts mention living in Okinawa, Japan. Well, that’s because we lived there on a whirlwind, 3-year adventure!

My passion for food and baking started early on in my childhood. I have memories, from as far back as I can remember, of cooking and baking with my mom and sister. That passion, along with a Master’s degree in Nutrition and Exercise Physiology and a few jobs in the food industry, led me to my career as a Registered Dietitian. I love eating healthy and exercising, but you’ll quickly find that my main love is baking, both the healthier versions of my favorite desserts and the indulgent ones.

I hope Confections of a Dietitian will be a place where I can share my favorite recipes, create new ones, learn how to photograph all of my creations and share my food travel experiences with you.
