Meet Our Providers
Bethany Frazier, MS, RDN, LD
Owner, Registered Dietitian
Hi there, I’m Bethany, the owner of the Kansas City Dietitian Collective. When I opened up the practice in 2015 as a solo dietitian I realized there was a gap in healthcare. I wanted to provide customized nutrition that allowed me to get to actually know my clients and their unique needs. Since then I have carved out my little corner of Kansas City specializing in healthy living and digestive health. Many clients show up at my door find me because they realize they’ve tried it all and still nothing is working for them, that’s where my expertise in personalized nutrition kicks in.
I’m no stranger to digestive issues of my own. After the birth of my third child and third round of antibiotics for mastitis I never thought I’d get better. My doctor suggested daily miralax or offered Linzess prescription. With the help of my trusted healthcare team I was able to craft a customized plan for me that is sustainable and keeps my digestive symptoms at bay.
I have called Kansas City home for over 20 years. My husband and I have made our home here with our three children and our rambunctious pup.
As the Kansas City Dietitian, I coach individual clients, provide corporate wellness opportunities, serve as a media spokesperson and course blog every once in a while. My specialities are: IBS, the Low FODMAP diet, GI Issues, picky eating, sports nutrition, and weight management (mindful eating).
Contact Bethany to get started on your journey towards better health.
Bethany is an in-network provider with United, Cigna, and Humana.
Cara Glenn, RD, LD
I like to joke that I have become solar powered after living in deserts for the last 10 years. We lived in Phoenix for over 6 years and most recently Dubai, United Arab Emirates for 3 years. We are new to the Kansas City area, but hoping to stay for many years to come and raise our two girls here.

Lisa Zane, RD, LD
I fell in love with the science of nutrition while studying psychology at The University of Kansas. I wanted to learn as much as I could about how the food I ate would impact my body. It became such a passion of mine that I knew I wanted to spend my career sharing my excitement for nutrition. After completing my degree is Psychology at KU, I went on to complete my degree in Dietetics at Kansas State University.
I am a Kansas girl, born and raised. My mom grew up on a farm in one-stoplight town in the middle of Kansas. All of my siblings are currently working in the agriculture and food industry. My brother worked in the cattle industry for years and now works directly with farmers, supplying their feed. My sister works with 4-H in Johnson County. My husband and I started our family in 2019 with the birth of our son. He is the absolute light of our lives.
I bring 10 years of experience to the Kansas City Dietitian team. In that time I have worked in hospital, physician office and virtual coaching settings. I also spent more than 7 years in a retail dietetics where I taught cooking and meal prep classes in addition to providing individualized nutrition counseling. I specialize in weight management, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and the prevention and treatment of non-insulin-dependent diabetes.
My philosophy in nutrition is that there is no one-size-fits-all. I believe in connecting with each client to uncover their personal path to reaching their goals. I look forward to meeting you!
Elena Towle, Nutrition Assistant
For as long as I can remember I have dealt with allergies, asthma, and gut issues. Through searching for answers I finally found that food is a very powerful tool. I have since grown a true passion for nutrition science and finding ways to make healthy food delicious.
Since graduating from the University of South Florida with a bachelor’s degree in public health, I completed a yoga teaching certification and managed a restaurant. After a little soul searching, I decided it was time to go back to school in order to do what I truly wanted- empower others to lead healthy, happy lives. I am currently pursuing a master’s degree in nutrition and dietetics through Kansas State University. My husband and I are new to Kansas City from sunny Florida- and excited to be here!
