Meet Our Dietitian

Kelsey Johnson, RD, LN, CDCES


My passion for food started at a very young age and I competed in my first cooking contest at age 8.   I grew up in rural  Miller, South Dakota. Although I struggled with my weight at a young age, it was after being sidelined by a high school sports injury that my weight began to peak. During my junior year of high school, I knew I needed to make a healthy change.  I started focusing on balanced meals and was healthy enough to exercise again. Since that time I ran in 5K's and was training for a half-marathon when I was sidelined again with a back injury.   Overcoming many obstacles, I lost those 80+ pounds and have kept it off for almost seven years.  I still love to cook and explore new foods/recipes. 


After high school, I attended SDSU in Brookings, SD to pursue a healthcare degree. During my freshman year, I discovered the world of Dietetics and never looked back.  Iowa State University was were I started my graduate training and completed a Dietetics accelerated internship.  During this internship, I received valuable training in community nutrition, rural health, hospital, LTC consulting , sports performance nutrition, weight loss, medical nutrition therapy,  and food service management.


I founded the 605 Dietitian, LLC in 2018 to have a media platform were individuals could find real, healthy nutrition information, fun recipes, and connect with me to start their own journey. I can't wait to hear from you!


To a healthier you,
