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,

Social Media and Marketing Manager
MPH

Ivory recently graduated with her Master’s in Public Health in Nutritional Sciences and completed her dietetic internship. She is currently studying for her licensing exam to become a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist! Ivory decided to pursue additional training in public health nutrition due to her passion for disease prevention and promotion of holistic health and wellbeing through diet and exercise at both the individual- and population-levels. She has been an American Council of Exercise-certified Personal Trainer and F45 group fitness trainer for several years and have enjoyed working with clients one-on-one in helping them reach their health and fitness goals. As a dietitian, Ivory hopes to continue building genuine relationships with her clients and to help each of them develop positive and healthy relationships with movement, food, and their body.

Ivory also loves nutrition research and data analysis! Prior to working with Saluté Nutrition, she led a social media public health campaign as part of an obesity prevention intervention study at the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health and has published and presented on the use of social media as a tool for public health. When she is not working, you can find Ivory sweating it out with her friends at the gym, exploring new neighborhoods by foot (what she calls an “urban hike”), or participating in any and all community events, from the weekly Farmer’s Market to a random Improv Comedy show.
