Clinical Team

Jennifer Okemah,

Owner/Clinical Director

MS, RDN, CSSD, BC-ADM, CDCES

Jennifer has been a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist since 2005 and a Certified Diabetes Care and Education Specialist (CDCES) since 2007. She has an additional certification as a Sports Specialist in Dietetics as well as being Board Certified in Advanced Diabetes Management. Her unique niche is fluid knowledge on all technology products approved for diabetes care by the FDA. She loves data! She has been a leader in her field in patient care, mentoring, serving as a preceptor, speaking, creating webinars, writing for nutrition and diabetes blogs as well as authoring scientific publications. But what she loves most is taking confusing, complex information and helping people make it usable for them to reach the health goals they set for themselves. When she is not in a clinic or office, she can be found on her bicycle training for a JDRF fundraising ride, paddleboarding on Lake Washington (year around), hiking, traveling the world or just reading a book with a nice glass of wine.

Jamie Kowatch,

Registered Dietitian / Diabetes Program Coordinator

MS, RDN, CDCES

As a Registered dietitian with personal experience with Diabetes, it is my goal to meet everyone where they are, within their own life and personal goals. I approach each individual with education specifically tailored to their needs; this allows me to individualize goals and healthcare management, and aid with patient-driven lifestyle and behavioral changes.
When she’s not in the clinic, you can find Jamie reading, doing nerdy things like playing video or board games, spending time with her chinchillas Mark & Basil, or enjoying a nice walk around Green Lake.

Ivory Loh,

Registered Dietitian / Certified Personal Trainer
MPH, RDN, CPT

Ivory embraces a Health-at-Every-Size approach to nutrition counseling and exercise training. As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and American Council of Exercise-Certified Personal Trainer, she strives to support her clients in developing a healthy relationship with food, movement, and their bodies. She prioritizes physical and mental wellbeing, sustainable health-promoting behaviors, and self-care over weight loss and management. Ivory also believes it is important to prioritize creating a safe and open space for people of all ages, body sizes, and backgrounds to engage in joyful movement. As a trainer, she specializes in functional and circuit training, calisthenics (aka moving and training with YOUR body efficiently and effectively), and building core strength.

When she’s not working, you can catch Ivory exploring neighborhoods and parks (what she calls “urban hiking”), traveling, and trying new things, especially if it involves something tasty!

Staff

Judy Gregerson,

Medical Community Liaison

While at the NY Times, she developed a love for relationship building and understanding the needs of her customers.
