Client Success Stories
Quadrupling her business revenues from year 1 to year 2
Emily is a creative, ambitious renal dietitian who works full-time and has built her thriving side-hustle practice, Kidney Nutrition to include 1:1 nutrition coaching, a digital product, a blog and now a group program - The Kidney Connection.
Through our journey working together, Emily:
- Quadrupled her business revenues from year 1 to year 2
- Launched her very first digital product, The Basics of Kidney Nutrition Ebook
- Built her brand as ‘the’ kidney nutrition expert, landing a cookbook deal for The Complete Renal Cookbook
- Scaled her business model beyond 1:1 nutrition coaching to include a group program - The Kidney Connection - which she filled with 5 participants in the first launch
Emily’s biggest win while working together:
“Having the support and confidence to launch a group program (and planning to do it again). Working with Krista provided me with structure in planning, launching and delivering my group program but also a process that I can now replicate on my own. Her keen eye to detail helped keep me on track and develop confidence to ask clients to pay for this service. As healthcare providers, we often have lofty ideas of how we think we should support our clients, Krista’s process helped me dive deeper into what my clients actually needed and really support them. Krista is also extremely authentic in her approach and I always felt comfortable asking her for help.”
The biggest learning she took away from working together:
“There is no right way to do anything. Everyone’s business is different, and setting it up so that your clients can benefit based on your niche is important.”
"By far completing an online course for passive income has been a huge win."
Jessica DeGore is the Registered Dietitian behind @dietitianjess. She offers her clients 1:1 nutrition coaching and has recently launched her very own online course - Type 2 Diabetes Made Easy.
Jess' biggest win:
"By far completing an online course for passive income has been a huge win. It has taken a lot of time and focus but following the steps and guidance from online course blueprint and other DSC courses (like setting up a lead magnet, marketing and sales strategies) has made it incredibly easy to take action and follow a plan.
Being able to run ideas and questions by Krista has been invaluable and very specific to me and my business. I've grown more confidence and clarity in how I want to grow my business."
"I learned how to leverage opportunities to gain clients and to be more strategic with my marketing. Following action steps provided by Krista in each session helped create more direction and structure for planning my offer and setting goals."
"She helped me get my first couple of clients and a short 5 months later we had our first 8k month!"
Nicole Sherratt is a Registered Dietitian and the founder of digital marketing agency, Wellness Marketing Co.
Nicole's biggest wins:
"I can't just pick one so I thought I would mention two. I would say my two biggest wins were making a pivot in my business to feel more aligned and learning additional marketing skills such as podcasting and SEO optimized blogging. I started with Krista taking 1:1 clients as a RD and she helped me pivot to starting my own digital marketing agency. This was something I was very afraid of doing but she helped me ease into it and I discovered it was much more aligned with my interests and skills! She helped me get my first couple of clients and a short 5 months later we had our first 8k month! She also is so knowledgeable on a wide variety of marketing tools which is so important in a business coach! She taught me how to make a podcast from start to finish including brainstorming episodes people actually want to listen to, how to record, edit and upload. She also taught me how to write blog posts that are SEO optimized and get picked up on google searches."
Nicole's biggest learnings:
"One of the biggest learnings I took away from Krista is that despite what other coaches may say, it's important to utilize a wide variety of marketing tools. She is very realistic and encourages you to expand your marketing efforts in order to grow your business without overwhelm! Krista is fantastic and I am so grateful for her support!"
"I learned that starting a private practice doesn’t have to be perfect. Some weeks, I was able to commit several hours to building my business, while others I had much less time."
Emily Bengson is the Registered Dietitian behind Simply Fueled Nutrition. She offers her clients 1:1 nutrition coaching in 3 and 6-month programs.
Emily's biggest win:
"I was able to sign an ideal client within my first 2 months of private practice! I truly think the verbiage and pain points we came up with were what made all the difference."
"I learned so much, it’s though to choose 1 thing. Beyond all of the amazing marketing, branding, and business strategies, I learned that starting a private practice doesn’t have to be perfect. Some weeks, I was able to commit several hours to building my business, while others I had much less time. Overall, I learned that consistency is the most important factor in creating a private practice, and I love how you described it. Consistency isn’t necessarily about how long you can commit to something, but rather it’s about how many times you come back to it. That’s stuck with me, and I’ve actually carried that into a lot of aspects of my life! "
"Krista guided me through the process of building and executing my virtual private practice in only 3 months!"
Investing in Krista was the best thing I could have done for myself and my business. Krista guided me through the process of building and executing my virtual private practice in only 3 months! During our sessions she helped me wage war with perfectionism and left me feeling inspired! I appreciated Krista's big picture thinking and ability to break down big goals into small actionable steps! I can't wait to work with her when it's time to scale my practice.
Sarah Kendell, Dietitian with a specialization in Eating Disorders, 3-month 1:1 coaching client
"I streamlined my admin work, increased 1-on-1 clients by 1.5x, and have consistently been hitting monthly revenue targets."
This is hands down the best investment I've made for my business. I was hesitant about coaching at first...can't I just run my business on my own? Sure, but I felt scrambled, struggled with getting my message across to clients, and was spending too much time on social media and not enough time doing actual "dietitian work". Working with Krista is awesome - I streamlined my admin work, increased 1-on-1 clients by 1.5x, and have consistently been hitting monthly revenue targets. I feel so confident about my business and the value I bring as a RD for my clients. I would recommend Krista to anyone looking to grow their business (or start one)!

"The biggest win was letting go of a job that was not serving me so I could pursue my entrepreneurial dreams!."

Finding confidence as a new dietitian
Audrey is a down-to-earth dietitian who recently graduated and wanted to take her passion for food and health and turn it into a thriving business.
Here are some of Audrey’s wins from our 1:1 coaching program:
Leveraging her life experience as a plant-based eater to define a niche that she felt confident with as a new dietitian
Developing a comprehensive marketing plan, that included a clear strategy for social media, blogging, SEO and making connections in the community
Launching a website to attract her ideal client and optimizing it for Google search
Getting her first two package paying clients within one month of her business launch
Overcoming anxiety around selling herself to start getting visible on social media
A note from Audrey:
I am so happy that I was able to work with Krista on building my private nutrition practice NutriFlourish. She helped me tremendously with everything from figuring out my niche and gaining the confidence to put myself out there, among many of other things that I felt lost on before working with her. I know that I would be confused without her guidance, organization, and support if I did not work with her! I highly recommend working with Krista to help coach you with your nutrition business!
"Releasing a freebie, setting up my email list, creating a marketing plan, running a cooking class, are all things I have wanted to do for the last 6 months, and within 6 weeks of working with Krista, they were done."
Bailey Franklyn, RD @harvesttablenutrition, 1:1 Coaching Client
"I have been 'working' on building my brand/business for the past two years but not seeming to make much progress & running in circles."
Krista has been a pleasure to work with. I have been 'working' on building my brand/business for the past two years but not seeming to make much progress or running in circles. When I started working with Krista, she gave me actionable steps that will actually help me build the foundations of my business. I am a person who wants to do it all and do it all right. So this framework Krista had set up allowed me to consistently make progress towards my business and attaining clients without having to do ALL the things. What I loved most about working with her, is that she met me where I was at in my business and valued my idea of my business vs a boxed-in standard. She truly has a customized approach to coaching that truly works. I would recommend Krista to anyone!
Stephanie Smalls, Dietitian with a specialization in sports nutrition, 3-month 1:1 coaching client
"Krista showed me how to structure premium offers that meet their needs and ensure I charge my value."
Working with Krista was awesome.. she really helped me take a closer look at what I want to accomplish with my coaching business, and how to structure premium offers for my clients that meet their needs and also ensure I charge my value too. I feel confident with my offerings now, and she also answered lots of questions and provided resources on logistics and marketing to help me feel very prepared moving forward.
Leigh Merotto, Dietitian with a specialization in IBS and sports, 90-minute intensive client
"Hiring her got me to my destination so much quicker, more efficiently, and with more confidence."
Before I started working with Krista I was spinning my wheels. She’s been like sand under my tires on an icy road, giving me the traction I need to gain momentum. I could have spent years spinning my wheels and maybe slowly made some progress, but hiring her got me to my destination so much quicker, more efficiently, and with more confidence. I really needed direction, structure, and accountability and that’s what I got. Before I was rarely confident that I was focussing my time on the right tasks and would start and stop projects without much progress. Krista helped me find focus and kept me accountable, making sure I stuck to the most important tasks so I could move my business forward. She helped me take my idea and turn it into a fully launched freelance video editing and design business in less than three months. Can’t say enough about her program and her as a person. Great to work with, so supportive and encouraging, and very knowledgeable. I definitely recommend her!
Sara Kerr, Dietitian with a focus in creative marketing, 3-month 1:1 coaching client
"Even though I have been in business for a while, working with Krista was my first experience with a business coach and I couldn't be happier."
Krista knows her stuff when it comes to business and bring to the table her expertise and enthusiasm. Even though I have been in business for a while, working with Krista was my first experience with a business coach and I couldn't be happier. No matter your stage of business, investing in a business coach like Krista is a must to help you laser in on your goals and get results faster.
