Lynae Klinginsmith is a Pacific Northwest native who loves all things food. She graduated with a BS in Nutrition in 2007. Since then she’s worn many different hats as a nutritionist for children, hospital dietitian, a diabetes educator, health teacher in schools, personal cook, workplace wellness program coordinator, and eating disorder nutritionist. She started private practice in 2014 to help individuals and families find peace with food, their bodies and discover intuitive eating.
In 2017 she changed the name of her practice to “Ruby Slippers Wellness” to capture the deeply held truth that the power to “come home” to health is within each one of us. She currently works with clients who are interested in a gentle nutrition approach. This includes everything from diabetes to emotional eating and hypertension to weight and body image concerns. Combining the principles of nutritional awareness, personal growth, and positive psychology, Ruby Slippers Wellness provides practical methods for redefining the role food plays in our lives. Lynae incorporates humor and empathy in her no-nonsense, non-diet approach.
Lynae serves the greater Portland area from her office in Vancouver, WA. Nutritionist by day, she is a biking, dog loving, traveling, dancing, yogi by night.
