More about Kaci
What is one thing you would want patients to know about you?
I truly care about each and every one of my patients, and value building relationships with them in order to better assist them in meeting their goals. I understand that every patient is different and has varying factors that affect their daily habits (i.e. work, family, hobbies), which is why I work hard to individualize my treatment and counseling plans for each of my patients. I believe that small changes lead to big successes and that every food fits into a healthy lifestyle.
How do you go about making your treatment plans for FORM patients?
The first step in creating a treatment plan for my patients is getting to know their current lifestyle, daily habits, likes/dislikes, and goals. This allows me to meet my patients where they are at in their health journey. I then work alongside them to create realistic, healthy lifestyle changes that fit into their current lifestyle and are maintainable forever.
Why do you love working with FORM patients?
Working at FORM gives me the opportunity to work with patients all across the country. I love this aspect as it allows me to gain different perspectives from patients with diverse backgrounds and cultures. I value the opportunity to meet frequently with my patients in order to build strong lasting relationships with them, assist them in overcoming challenges, and most importantly, celebrate their successes with them!
