The buzz about RDKate...
"Kate is caring, thoughtful, and hard-working. As a sports dietitian, I consider her very competent. She stopped by practice and games numerous times to watch her athletes. This was great because it helped her get to know them in their environment."
-Mike Straus, PA-C, ATC, Michigan State University Athletics
"Kate's approach to nutrition is outstanding! She believes in fixing the diet before turning to supplements. She educates the athlete, the coaches and the parents to provide a team approach to success. RDKate is an asset to any team!"
-Mark Florence "Flo", Head Athletic Trainer, Naperville Central High School
“Kate provided an in depth, honest discussion about transitioning to college for our new student-athletes. Kate took the time to investigate our campus dining options and provided many options for an athlete to utilize in all event areas. With the nutrition plan, she was able to outline the needs of a heavy training period to the championship phase to the off-season. The approach was proactive and realistic for a full time student-athlete.”
-Mahesh Narayanan, Head Women’s Cross Country Coach and Assistant Women’s Track & Field Coach, North Central College
“Kate did a terrific job at the IMG Academies. Conscientious and hard working, she came into a busy summer period and brought a high level of professionalism straight away. She proved to be creative and can think outside of the box when it comes to solving complex problems. As a manager, I was also impressed at her ability to go above and beyond and come back with solutions that exceeded her role and expectations from her. Her passion for performance nutrition was clear and I have no doubt she will be an asset to the field and to any team that she joins in the future. “
-Angus Mugford, Head of the Mental Conditioning Division at IMG Academies
“Kate demonstrated that she not only had a breadth and depth of knowledge in the field of sports nutrition, but also that she was capable of applying that to the challenging situations offered by elite athletes, and that is a talent that marks her out as exceptional. I have no hesitation in recommending her and I am certain she will excel in whatever tasks she undertakes.”
-Sally Parsonage, Former Head of Nutrition Division at IMG Academies
“Kate epitomizes professionalism in the field of nutrition. She is not only extremely knowledgeable, but she has the ability to artistically present the appropriate information, while educating in the process. Kate flourished in an environment that consists of many languages, ethnicities, and ages, and did a fantastic job maneuvering her way through in a graceful and effective manner. In addition, she lives the same healthy lifestyle that she promotes."
-Trevor Anderson, CSCS, Owner of Better Every Day Performance Institute, Former trainer at IMG Academies
“As a medical researcher and an international scientist for Red Bull sponsored professional endurance athletes, I have had the opportunity to work the last 4 years with Kate Davis as we provide medical and sports performance testing for her clients. Based on my direct experience with Kate, I have found her to be very professional and knowledgeable in the area of sports nutrition. Her clients rave about her ability to set attainable goals and problem solve dietary challenges in ways that helps them achieve long-term success. I have personally worked with her in making sure our testing results are helping and understandable to her clients. In that regard, I personally find her very easy to communicate with and develop strategies that help her clients gain great value for her services.”
-Craig Broeder PhD, FACSM, FNAASO, Founder and CEO of Exercising Nutritionally, LLC, Research Scholar for Northern Illinois University
“Kate worked with athletes that I coached while I was at North Central College and had great report with them as well as success in helping several women navigate proper eating habits to help improve their ability to train and recover. When I started at University of Chicago and we had a student-athlete weekend in which we needed an athlete focused nutrition talk. I immediately thought of Kate. She was organized, timely, and provided a lot of helpful information about the difference of nutrition needs for athletes and non-athletes. Not only did we receive great feedback from athletes but the parents were extremely grateful that we found someone so professional to provide information for the incoming student-athletes.”
-Stephen Fleagle, Assistant Coach Cross Country/Track & Field, Sprints/Jumps, University of Chicago
