A nurse practitioner and registered dietitian with more than 25 years of experience, Robyn Kievit specializes in using medical science and psychopharmacology to support her clients in the areas of eating disorders and body image. Robyn led the industry as the first dietitian to become a nurse practitioner. Combining these degrees and modalities allows her to see patients through these dual lenses, enhancing and elevating the quality of care they receive.
Robyn employs a patient, mentoring approach in her work, with an emphasis on helping clients attain their best health in small, new, habitual lifestyle steps while focusing on the positives of what clients are already practicing on their own. Her varied work background — as staff nurse, nurse practitioner, cardiac dietitian, and nutrition consultant to schools, hospitals, and professional sports teams — has given her a unique ability to achieve positive client results.
Robyn sat on the Health Professional Advisors Panel for the Egg Nutrition Center and was the medical liaison for the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals metro-Boston chapter for three years. She also has served on the Consumer Advisory Boards for Paramount Farms, the Wheat Foods Council and as a nutrition expert to the American College Health Association.
A sought-after speaker at industry conferences and events, Robyn has appeared live on both television and radio and has been quoted in Fitness Magazine, Fox News, Oxygen Magazine, The Boston Herald, The Boston Globe, ADVANCE for NP’s & PA’s, Today’s Dietitian and other national and local media.
Robyn attained her FNP with a BSN and MSN in nursing, and earned a BS in Dietetics from the University of Connecticut. For ten years, she was credentialed as a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics through the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. She is also a Certified Eating Disorders Registered Dietitian through the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals.
She lives in Concord, MA, with her family.
Robyn is my go to referral for my patients with eating disorders. Her holistic approach through blending psychopharmacology and nutrition is critical. As a pelvic floor physical therapist, we share a lot of mutual patients and they do really well under Robyn’s care. I trust Robyn with my hardest cases and she is wonderful with collaborating and communicating about these patients which benefits the patients 100%!Melissa Hines, PT, DPT
Robyn is smart, kind, authentic, warm and knows her way around anxiety, depression, disordered eating, and trauma. She is great with all ages and really gets it with teenagers and young adults. She listens, talks in plainspeak and connects with people in a genuine way. We have worked together very closely over the past several years and I continue to be impressed and deeply grateful for our collaboration. I love working with Robyn and I am always thrilled when she can support another of my clients with a med consultation — sometimes along with a nutrition consult, sometimes not — because I know they will be getting great care.Lauren Manasse, LICSW
