Carolyn Feibig, MS, RD, LD
is originally from Saint Louis, MO and moved to Washington, D.C. for her dietetic internship. Prior to becoming a dietitian, she was a 5th grade teacher. Carolyn became interested in kidney nutrition when her nephew was born with one working kidney. She has been volunteering for the American Kidney Fund (AKF) since 2015. Carolyn works with AKF on many projects including presenting multiple nutrition education webinars, reviewing the Kidney Health Coach program, and as a content developer for the Kidney Kitchen®. She also volunteers with the AAKP and the NKF. In 2018 she was awarded the NKF’s Regional Recognized Renal Dietitian for Region 2 (Southeast United States). Carolyn has also presented at the Alport Syndrome’s Annual Family Conference in 2020 and other renal nonprofit group events. Carolyn tries to live her life by some universal truths: the more you know the more interesting your dinner parties, the prequels to Star Wars should never have been made, art is all around you not just hanging in a museum, people who are ‘cool’ are boring, the best way to show love is in the kitchen, people who are outdoors seem happier, traveling is a good way to get over yourself, spontaneous dance parties keep you sane, eat food not supplements, don’t buy organic buy local and being a good person is important.
