Christie Gales is a Licensed and Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist working with clients online via telehealth. She is a certified health coach through the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Her favorite tools to utilize with patients during sessions include meal planning, goal setting, and intuitive eating.
Christie received her bachelor’s degree from The Ohio State University, where she completed the coordinated program in medical dietetics. Her dietetic internship included rotations in clinical nutrition at Fairfield Medical Center, outpatient nutrition at the Wexner Medical Center, and renal nutrition at Davita Dialysis. During her time as a buckeye, Christie received a scholarship to complete an undergraduate research project in gastrointestinal nutrition, focusing on SIBO, IBS, and the Low-FODMAP diet. She received an award, presented her findings at conferences, and published her research in the Journal of The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Working through her own battles with GI ailments, Christie found solace in diet and lifestyle changes. Moving to a plant-forward diet using the plate method, utilizing techniques of intuitive eating, and restoring a healthy microbiome with the Low-FODMAP diet, Christie healed her gut and found her calling. This experience drew Christie to pursue dietetics, so she could learn even more tools to help others.
Christie believes every person has unique needs and interests, and she utilizes an individualized and holistic approach to help her clients become empowered and equipped to make lasting lifestyle changes. Using person-centered techniques, Christie guides people to find their own solutions that help them eat and feel their best.
