Paige Wetherbee, RDN, CD
Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
Washington State Certified Dietitian
Eating Disorder Dietitian
Food represents much more than nourishment and is woven into our culture, traditions, celebrations and so much more. Paige enjoys working with clients with a wide range of backgrounds, ethnicities, and cultures and understands the importance of individualizing and honoring a person’s plan based on this.
Paige was born and raised in the Snoqualmie Valley and has since returned to live there after graduating from Central Washington University. Paige graduated with a degree in Food Science and Nutrition with a specialization in Dietetics and a minor in Public Health.
Paige’s work experience includes her role as a Nutrition Manager and dietitian at a long-term care facility. At this time in her career, she became passionate about increasing quality of life for the elderly. It became clear to her that nutrition is not about what foods to take away, but about how adding foods can increase joy and happiness. Malnutrition in the elderly population is unfortunately quite common and Paige advocated for ways to decrease malnutrition risk by prescribing supplements or less restrictive diet orders when appropriate.
Most recently, Paige was an eating disorder dietitian in a higher level of care setting. Her primary role included working with child and adolescent patients at the residential and partial hospitalization (PHP) levels of care and adults in intensive outpatient (IOP) level of care. Paige’s experience utilizing Family Based Treatment with child and adolescent clients struggling with eating disorders continues to be an integral treatment strategy.
Outside of work, Paige enjoys cooking for friends and family. She loves hosting friends for dinner parties, reading fiction books, yoga, bike riding, wine tasting, traveling and watching mariners games.
