Kelsey's interest in nutrition started while coaching downhill ski racing. She wanted to know what foods athletes needed to fuel their bodies. While living in NYC, Kelsey worked at a nutrition school with an in-house chef. Her favorite part of the day was talking with the chef at lunch. This is where she learned many of her culinary skills. As a Wisconsin native, Kelsey is happy to be back in Madison. In her spare time, she can be found reading cookbooks, knitting, running, and enjoying time outside with her two lively boys.
