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.
