Kansas City Dietitian

Bethany Frazier, MS, RDN, LD

Hi there, I’m Bethany, the owner of the Kansas City Dietitian. I have always loved to cook and experiment in the kitchen. I started my career in corporate wellness and realized that if my real goal was to help people I needed more specific training. That is when I decided to return to school to become a dietitian.

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).

Kansas City Integrative Nutrition

Megan Harper, MS, RD, LD, CLT

 
I became interested in nutrition while playing filed hockey at Missouri State University. I wanted to know how food could enhance my performance, so I majored in dietetics.  I moved to Kansas City from St. Louis for my first job and I fell in love with the city.  
 
Fast forward several years, my mom. and later myself, were diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and she was handed a bottle of Miralax to take daily. This was the only recommendation made to her with no discussion on diet, lifestyle, or supplements. I knew there had to be more to the story, so I started to dig into the research and look outside the box. I became certified with food sensitivities, utilizing the mediator release test (MRT) , and I recently enrolled in an 18-month integrative and functional nutrition certification program. I am happy to say that both my mom and I have worked through our IBS symptoms and I’m ready to help you with yours! 
 
I help patients dig into the “why” of their health problems and address both diet and lifestyle. I specialize in GI disorders, autoimmune conditions, hormonal issues, and lifestyle changes.

Kansas City weight loss

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!

Cara Glenn, RD 

 
After spending a summer in high school watching far too much Food Network and teaching myself to cook, my love of food and nutrition was born. I played NCAA Division 1 soccer studied dietetics at Missouri State University (Go Bears!). I completed my dietetic internship at University of Houston. After that, I moved to Wichita, Kansas, got married, and our seemingly nomadic life really took off. 
 

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. 

While I love to try new foods and recipes, I believe in keeping food simple. Cooking and eating should be enjoyable experiences, not something that adds more stress to our lives. I’ve worked in a variety of settings as a dietitian, but one thing has always remained the same- how can I help as many individuals as possible reach their goals. I specialize in weight management, general nutrition, childhood nutrition, meal planning, and healthy lifestyle changes. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

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!
