Katie Doran Filkins, RD, CDE
Registered Dietitian, Certified Diabetes Educator
Certified Personal Trainer
Katie is the founder and CEO of Boulder Nutrition & Exercise Services since February 2006.
Katie has worked in the Boulder community and clinical setting teaching nutrition and exercise since 2003. Originally a professional dancer, she moved to Boulder from NYC to complete her education in nutrition. She attained her undergraduate degree in Nutrition and Food Science from Hunter College. Her graduate work and internship were completed through the University of Northern Colorado, receiving her degree as a Registered Dietitian.
Katie was a clinical dietitian at Boulder Community Hospital from 2004-2012. Her 8 years of clinical exposure to patients in a critical care unit with post open heart surgeries, GI obstructions and disorders, wound care, acute renal failure, diabetes complications and more gives her a unique and broad base of knowledge for medical nutrition therapy. She created the YMCA of Boulder Valley’s first nutrition education program and served as their community dietitian for 5 years before opening her own nutrition and exercise facility. She opened Boulder Nutrition and Exercise Services in February 2006 to unite the field of nutrition counseling with personal training. Boulder Nutrition & Exercise remains the only nutrition education facility to have patients on a piece of cardio equipment during their nutrition consults! Boulder Nutrition & Exercise has since partnered with Boulder Endocrinology in 2008 to provide Medical Nutrition Therapy to their patients at their Lafayette facility. Katie works very closely with medical providers to provide a team approach for patients to improve and maintain optimal health.
Her specialties include diabetes management, cardiovascular health, weight loss, GI disorders, sports nutrition and women’s health. Using a compassionate approach as a coach, she leads her clients to success as they define it. The word ‘diet’ comes from the Latin word ‘diaeta’, which means “a way of life”. Katie is a “foodie” and her passion for food and fueling the body will help you attain the “way of life” you deserve.
Katie loves being outside enjoying the Colorado terrain and weather with her husband and 2 little boys. This is her adopted home of 12 years and she is here to stay!
