Katie McKee, MCN, RDN, LD

Katie McKee attempts to find balance in all things as she juggles commitments to her family, friends, work and French bulldog, Romeo. With two great passions, communication and nutrition, Katie loves her role at Dairy MAX teaching others about the power nutrition has in their lives. As a registered dietitian nutritionist, Katie focuses on making the science simple. As a nutrition expert, she knows that healthy eating goes a long way toward a lifetime of health and well-being. Working for Dairy MAX allows her to talk about the health benefits of milk, cheese and yogurt with a wide variety of audiences from new moms to established health professions. 

Katie comes to dietetics as a second career.  Her personal passion for nutrition led her to this new profession. With a Bachelor of Arts in journalism from the University of Arizona, Katie worked as a writer, editor and reporter before returning to school at the University of Texas at Southwestern Medical Center to earn a Master of Clinical Nutrition in 2014. In 2018, she was named Media Dietitian of the Year by the Dallas Dietetic Alliance. She is a media representative for the Texas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and contributing author for Communicating Nutrition: The Authoritative Guide.

Originally from Tucson, Arizona, she now lives in Lantana, Texas, with her husband, Sean, and their son.

She has a food-first philosophy, focused on finding ways for people to find balance both on their plates and in their busy lives.
