About Katie 

Hello I am Katie (Katherine) Westwood (nee Powell), founder of KP Nutrition & Specialist Gastroenterology Dietitian with almost 10 years experience as a registered Dietitian.

From my teenage years I knew I wanted to pursue a career as a Dietitian. My Grandad needed dialysis for the treatment of kidney disease and whilst receiving his treatment, he was referred to a Dietitian to discuss advice to help manage his renal disease through diet. The realisation that I could combine my love of food, science & working with people, led me down this career path. Fairly quickly in my career, I realised I was passionate about Gastroenterology, for reasons including diet being so integral to many Gastrointestinal conditions & Dietitians being such a key part of the Gastro multidisciplinary team; I knew that I could make a real difference to peoples' lives.

I graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Nutrition & Dietetics in 2014 from the University of Surrey. I have worked in several NHS trusts in the South East of England, including as a Senior Specialist Gastroenterology Dietitian at Surrey & Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust and I currently work part time as a Lead Gastroenterology Dietitian at Ashford & St Peter's NHS Foundation Trust.

In addition to my NHS work and KP Nutrition's private clinic, I have also worked with Field Doctor & The IBS Network offering 1:1 appointments for their clients, written articles for British Dietetic Association, CN Magazine & The Nursing Times, have a Distinction in the Certificate in Culinary Skill from City & Guilds, presented a webinar on the management of IBS to Dietitian in the MENA region and I am one of King's College London's FODMAP trained dietitians

About Katherine 

Hello I am Katherine Meek, Specialist Gastroenterology & Surgical Dietitian.

Studying the complexities of the human body & brain during my undergraduate degree in Anatomy, developmental & Human Biology BSc (KCL, 2017) confirmed to me that I wanted to pursue a career in healthcare and help people optimise their health & wellbeing. Nutrition & Dietetics was the natural choice - bringing together my love for food, psychology, people and the human body! I completed a MSc in Human Nutrition at Kings College London in 2018 and went on to complete my Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics in 2021. 

Since qualifying as a dietitian, I have worked in several NHS trusts. This has provided me with a broad range of experiences from oncology, cardiac and endocrinology, which led me to my specialist interest in gastroenterology, gastrointestinal surgery and complex nutrition support. I have worked in specialist gastroenterology roles across three NHS trusts, including my current role as a Specialist Gastroenterology & Surgical Dietitian at Ashford & St Peter's NHS Trust. I also completed the Advanced Dietary Management and the Low FODMAP Diet in IBS course (Kings College London) in 2023.
