Kendal Shanks


Kendal was born and raised in the beautiful state of Arizona and considers herself an “Arizonan.” She received her Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. Afterwards, she completed her dietetic internship through the University of Arizona Individualized Supervised Practice Pathway to become a certified Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.

Kendal worked in the health nutrition and dietetics field in the Tucson area for 5 years before joining the team at The Nutrition Professionals in the summer of 2017. She has a background in eating disorder prevention, body acceptance, school food service, and inpatient clinical nutrition.

Kendal is passionate about helping people develop and nurture a healthy relationship with food. Following an individualized approach, she strives to empower all people to feel confident in their own bodies as they pursue their health and wellness goals.

On the weekends, you can find her: spending time with family and friends, hiking, trying new restaurants, road tripping to the beach, or cheering on her favorite football and basketball teams. Go Wildcats and Go Packers!

Kendal enjoys cooking, reading, snowboarding, swimming, and recently started running. She cannot live without the gorgeous Arizona sunsets, guacamole, ripe strawberries, and juicy watermelon.
