Kelly Jones MS, RD, CSSD, LDN
Kelly is passionate about empowering active individuals to optimally fuel their busy lives. She has a plant-forward approach to nutrition as she believes this eating style best serves you and the planet. As a board certified sports dietitian, mom and former division I athlete who competes in road races and triathlons, practices yoga, and weight trains, Kelly helps others integrate nutrition, fitness, and environmentally conscious habits into their lifestyle in a realistic way.
While nine years as a college professor reinforced the importance of evidence-based nutrition practice, her personal experiences and work with disordered eating and eating disorders in the athletic population stimulated her desire to merge her love of science with the philosophies of intuitive eating.
A personal interest in and experience working with patients on nutrition for mental health encouraged the holistic approach that Kelly takes on improving both physical and mental health with food. Her messages as a media spokesperson, during speaking engagements, and in one-on-one coaching sessions are all about empowering others to trust their body while applying the science of nutrition to individualized needs.
In individual and group settings, Kelly works with everyone from collegiate and professional athletes to active kids and parents. While she specializes in performance nutrition for professional swimming, professional baseball and endurance sports, Kelly has experience working with nearly all types of athletes.
She consults with the Philadelphia Phillies organization and has consulted for USA Swimming. She was also the founder of the nutrition program at the Newtown Athletic Club, a top three independent health club in the nation.
