Kim Dorval, RD, LDChief Executive Officer
My mission is to advance the field of dietetics by helping registered dietitians change the health of their communities through private practice. I am the founder and CEO of Nutrition in Motion, LLC, but this is actually my second career. I used to be the Vice President of a Bank and I also used to be very unhealthy. When I was in my mid 30’s my father had a massive heart attack and that was a huge wake up call for me. I didn’t want to work my whole life to retire and be sick. It took me about 2 years, but I was able to find a healthy body weight, a sustainable exercise routine, and learn how to overcome my family history through a healthy lifestyle. Driven by this experience, I quit my career in banking and went back to school to become a dietitian.
During my schooling and internship, I vowed to help as many people as possible live healthier lives. I knew that in order to reach this vision, I could not do it alone. I started NIM in 2007 as a sole practitioner and in 2021 we now have a team of more than 70 dietitians in 15 states and continue to grow. In the past 5 years we have gone from helping ~1200 people a year to now helping over 15,000 people a year. I could not be more proud and grateful for the leadership team at NIM who have helped build this amazing company and all of the individual dietitians nationwide who were brave enough to start their own private practice so they could help people on their own terms. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for NIM and the dietetic field.
