Katie Hinton, EdD, MS, RD, LDN

Educational Coordinator

Katie Hinton received her undergraduate degree from Western Kentucky University and completed a combined dietetic internship and master's degree program in Clinical Nutrition from the University of Memphis. After completing the internship, Katie began her dietetics career as a clinical dietitian at Vanderbilt University Medical Center and Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, where she worked with both pediatric and adult patients for almost seven years. As a preceptor for Vanderbilt’s dietetic interns, Katie fell in love with education and developing the knowledge of dietitians-to-be. She completed her Doctor of Education in 2023 at Lipscomb University, and that same year she excitedly joined the internship faculty team as an educational coordinator.
