Registered and Licensed Dietitian
Christine Forsythe is a Registered and Licensed Dietitian with a mission to address the root causes of her client’s symptoms through diet and lifestyle changes.
Christine’s journey to becoming a dietitian started at a young age. Her whole family is in the medical field, so health and wellness are in her DNA.
It wasn’t until after her first year in college, at Oklahoma State, that the power of food took hold in a personal way. Christine learned that she was intolerant to gluten, a protein found in wheat and other grains and that she would have to shift the way she ate completely.
Several years later, after suffering from weight gain, cystic acne, hair loss, and mild depression, Christine was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal condition that causes insulin resistance accompanied by inflammation. After receiving this diagnosis, Christine dug even more into her diet and found that there is a way to battle and alleviate her symptoms naturally, and without medication.
Christine understands that food is a powerful tool. She has experience in the medical environment, helping patients maximize the healing process, and has also worked extensively with collegiate athletes, optimizing performance with diet. From meal planning to tailoring recipes to suit an allergy to coming up with healthy snacks that fit your lifestyle, Christine can make it happen.
Whether you are looking to lose weight, optimize performance, heal from an injury, or professional accountability to maintain a healthy lifestyle, Christine is here for you.

BS Nutrition and Dietetics
A Registered Dietitian candidate, Jace Kennedy is rounding out his Medical City Healthcare Dallas Dietetic Internship after receiving his Bachelor of Science degree from Texas Tech University in Nutritional Sciences and Dietetics.
Jace integrates the physical, mental, and spiritual, for overall health and wellbeing. If your goal is to optimize your energy balance, achieve weight loss/weight gain results, or improve your athletic performance, then Jace is the Nutritionist for you.
An athlete from an early age, Jace grew up playing soccer, but after multiple injuries ended his soccer career, he found a passion for holistic wellness. With the severity of his injuries (a fractured fibula and a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament) came the prescription of narcotics for an extended period of time. Although necessary for optimal recovery, the side effects of the pain medications took a toll on his mental and physical health. But it was through these adversities that Jace was able to find healing through fitness, nutrition, and meditation; simple approaches, which led to lifestyle changes for improved physical, mental, and spiritual health.
Through his passion for sports and fitness, Jace became a certified personal trainer, specializing in hypertrophy, weight loss, and athletic performance. A few years into his practice, Jace’s passion for dietetics outgrew his love for kinesiology. His fascination with the importance of diet, and its effect on our health, has guided Jace to where he is now.
Jace shares the Rachel Scheer philosophy of finding the ‘root cause’ through functional medicine and holistic healing. As a Coach for Rachel Scheer Nutrition, Jace addresses the root cause of an imbalance in the body to create a customized program consisting of dietary and fitness recommendations, supplements, and lifestyle modifications to optimize overall wellness.

Certified Nutrition Coach
Kelsey Mackin is a Certified Nutrition Coach, former collegiate athlete, and All-American who earned her B.A. in Public Relations & Advertising, and M.A. in Leadership Development from Chapman University where she coached and provided nutrition guidance for the DIII Women’s Lacrosse Team.
At the age of 14, Kelsey trained and competed through sports anxiety and chronic morning sickness while unknowingly battling Hepatitis A.
“I couldn’t recover from practices, fatigue was my normal, my digestion was all over the place, and my liver was inflamed for about five months… after testing for mono, doctors chalked it up to social and sports anxiety, until retesting found that my body had fought off Hepatitis A.”
Not knowing what’s going on inside, and feeling like your body is working against you, is scary, frustrating, and makes you wonder, ‘is this how I’m going to feel forever?’ If we don’t have our health, what do we have?
Our bodies are incredible, and by addressing the root cause of those things that are making us feel ‘off’ our game (gut health, food sensitivities, nutrient deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, diet, mood, stress, energy levels) we can come out on top.
Kelsey specializes in helping athletes dial in their nutrition for optimal performance and recovery. She also enjoys teaching lifestyle clients how weight loss is easy– application, execution, and mindset are where it gets trick
