WELCOME KARLI TO OUR MOTIVATED TO MOVE TEAM! As we head into the last half of our challenge, Karli will be lending insight and helping Julie learn how to eat for life! Let's meet Karli! #yvw #yvwmagazine #yvwm2m #billings Hi everyone! My name is Karli Bies and I am a registered dietitian in Billings. I received my bachelor's degree and completed my dietetic internship from Montana State University, Go Cats! My passion is not only in food and nutrition, but really working with clients on their overall health. I hope to offer the tools and support to help people make changes that are sustainable and enhance their overall wellness. Helping to create a positive body image as well as a healthy relationship with ALL foods are a few of the main goals I enjoy helping people achieve. I would consider myself a non-diet dietitian because let's be honest, most of those fad/quick fix diets don't work! I am looking forward to helping Julie build her well-balanced diet to get her the results she wants that will last a lifetime. I cannot wait to be a part of this amazing group of women on their journey towards a healthier life. If you would like to work with me you can reach out to me by email at You can also find me on instagram @karli_bies to follow along with my life as well as some recipes and nutrition-related info.
