My Story

Hi there! My name is Katie Dienes. I am a proud Registered Nurse (RN), Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and the “KD” behind KD/20 Wellness. My journey to creating KD/20 Wellness is 2-fold: inspired both by my role as a nurse and as a patient.

 

Like perhaps many of you, I had suffered with multiple chronic symptoms for nearly all of my life. Searching desperately for solutions I saw several dozens of doctors, hardly ever making forward progress. I felt exhausted, frustrated, and entirely dismissed by most providers.

 

After years of trial and error, I finally found my amazing integrative healthcare team. We’ve discovered not simply how to mask my symptoms, but how to address the root of what’s causing them. For the first time ever, I've known what it feels like to be seen as a whole person, and have finally made sense of what it means to truly heal.

Amid searching for answers, I began my career in healthcare. I am so incredibly passionate about my work as a nurse and couldn't imagine doing anything else, but I often felt this nagging sense that something was missing. What you learn very quickly when working in a traditional clinical setting is that despite our best intentions as caregivers, dealing with an overloaded healthcare system that is overwhelmingly comprised of chronic illness gone awry really leaves you with no choice but to deliver incomplete (and often inadequate) care. Working in an environment with so many obstacles stacked against you, it is easy to simply hand out prescriptions and bypass the very basics of health and wellness when hoping to heal our patients: the lifestyle factors that got them to where they are now. On top of that, many chronic illnesses are simply overlooked or dismissed altogether. This is where I come in as your RN health coach.

 

As your RN health coach, partner, and KD/20 Wellness founder, my goal is to empower you to become your own strongest advocate and reclaim your health. It is tempting for us to expect a silver bullet pill or procedure to fix our problems, but authentic healing and wellness lies within our day-to-day choices. How we choose to feed ourselves, move our bodies, leave jobs that run us ragged, and cultivate healthy relationships are just a few examples. Medical therapies are an incredible tool, but they don’t have to be our sole solution. There are so many other things that we can do to help ourselves in the process.

Through my experiences as both an RN and a patient, I am excited to walk with you through this journey while equipping you with the knowledge, resources and support needed to harmonize your medical care and lifestyle choices so that you can overcome disease and live your healthiest life.

 

We are not our illnesses, and our diseases do not define us.

I can't wait to chat with you soon and get started!
