McKenna Welshans, Registered Dietitian
McKenna is a Registered Dietitian who is passionate about helping her clients find peace with food in order to meet their nutrition and wellness goals. She provides medical nutrition therapy based on individual needs and incorporates intuitive eating, a non-diet approach. Her nutrition philosophy promotes "all foods fit". She encourages clients to eat real, whole food as a source of nourishment as well as a source of enjoyment and break free from the diet cycle.
McKenna completed her Bachelors of Science Degree in Dietetics as well as Exercise Science from Messiah University in 2017 and subsequently completed her Dietetic Internship through Messiah University in 2018.
In addition to her position at Messiah, she works part-time as a sports dietitian and exercise physiologist for Lancaster General Sports Medicine. She also trains and competes as an Ironman triathlete, which has enabled her to experiment with a variety of methods of fueling for sport so she can also provide personal experience and resources for students who are physically active or who participate in athletics.
