Caitlin Maher, M.S., CNS

As the former office manager at BeWell, Caitlin got a sense of what clients needed and learned an invaluable amount of information from the nutritionists. Inspired by her experiences, Caitlin received a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition at the Maryland University of Integrative Health. There she was trained in an evidence-based, scientific approach. She believes that every individual is different due to their unique biochemistry and looks forward to helping her clients discover more about themselves. She then went on to become a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS), which requires 1,000 supervised clinical hours and a national examination by the American Nutrition Association

As a health detective, she excels at digging through complex information and data to get at the root imbalance and address it. She has a passion for her clients and for advocating for their needs. She says “I believe that everyone deserves to feel well and to feel their best. I am lucky that I am in a position to help people with that.”

“I bring hope to clients and a spirit of relentless determination. As a longtime competitive distance runner, I do not quit and I will be your champion throughout your health journey. My education is based on a whole systems approach and a naturopathic philosophy. My work with you will reflect this as we work to address the root cause of any issues and achieve optimal health.”

As a self-proclaimed “foodie,” Caitlin hopes to inspire clients to enjoy food and engage in a healthy relationship with food. No matter how busy your schedule is or limited your diet, Caitlin can help guide you through the process of constructing nutritious and delicious meals.

When not working or cuddling her pets, Caitlin is enjoying the outdoors and running with her husband. She has completed two full marathons and 10 half marathons. Running has helped teach her the value of proper nutritional fuel and the power of the mind-body connection.  She believes that “our body’s are always stronger than what we realize. We just have to pay attention and give them what they need.” She also volunteers at Global Connections, a nonprofit organization whose goal is to bridge the gap between the State College community and the international population at Penn State.
