Kaitlyn McCarthy

Kaitlyn, clinical nutrition manager at Monadnock Community Hospital, is a member of the certified diabetes team. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Nutritional Science from the University of New Hampshire. She then went on to complete her dietetic internship at the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford, Connecticut. After graduating, she found her niche in clinical nutrition, helping people improving their health and wellness through food. Having several close family members with diabetes is what sparked her interest to get her CDCES and become a diabetes educator. When she is not working, she can be found spending time with friends and family, cooking and baking, and spending time outdoors hiking, swimming, skiing, or kayaking.
