Kitty Lenhart, MEd, RDN, is a recognized nutrition and health expert in weight management, and wellness promotion. Her experience is varied having lived and worked in Japan as the initiating Clinical Dietitian of Life Enrichment Program which served as the foundation for the US Army wellness initiative. Her work in public health in North Carolina and more recently in Solano and Contra Costa Counties gave her insight into how to transform wellness theories into practice within a variety of community settings. Through her experience as a Clinical Dietitian with John Muir Health Weight Management Program, she has observed that nutrition is completely individualized and that there is no one size fits all approach to eating habits. Her unique career experience, coupled with listening to each client’s specific needs, allows her to bring a fresh and innovative approach to each coaching session, creating individualized food and exercise plans. Kitty has great enthusiasm for her work and is passionate about helping individuals improve their overall health.

She is an avid hiker and has led several hiking trips to bay area destinations, Scotland, and Japan. Her interest in farm-fresh foods and gardening led her to recently become a Master Gardener with the University of California Cooperative Extension.
