Meet the Experts
We asked a few of our Experts to introduce themselves. Check them out:
Emily Matson, MS, RDN
After years working in dog and cat nutrition, Emily realized that if she could improve the health of pets through diet improvement, she should be able to do the same for people, too! She returned to school to get her Master’s degree in nutrition from Bastyr University and completed an internship with the University of Michigan to become a dietitian. Emily loves helping people achieve better health through the small, daily choices that stack on each other to create big changes over time. At Brook, she appreciates the ability to offer targeted, personalized recommendations to each member.
Outside of Brook, Emily likes to get outside to garden or go hiking. On rainy Seattle days, she enjoys reading and playing board games.
Heather King, MS, RDN, CDE
After a career as a National Park Service Ranger, Heather switched gears and attended graduate school at Bastyr University for a Master’s in Nutrition. Her grandmother was a summer camp nutritionist, and her mother cooked with tofu long before most people knew what that was, so you could say nutrition was quite literally in her blood.
After grad school, Heather worked for a decade at local Seattle medical clinics, providing nutrition care to patients and working on her Certified Diabetes Educator credential. She started at Brook in June 2016. She is loving watching Brook grow into such an amazing tool for our members.
Outside of work, Heather enjoys biking and playing outside with her wife and 7-year old daughter, and tending to her backyard veggie garden.
Kelsea Hoover, MS, RDN
Kelsea moved to Seattle from California to pursue her career as a dietitian. With a bachelor’s degree in Genetics from the University of California at Davis already in hand, she continued her education with a master’s degree in nutrition from Bastyr University. She is passionate about helping people find balance for happiness and health. She believes everyone is unique and deserves the individualized care that Brook provides.
When she’s not working for Brook, you can find Kelsea hanging out with her two cats, cooking in her tiny kitchen, or getting out into the wilderness for hiking or camping with her partner.
