Molly Kimball, RDN, LDN, CSSD
After graduating from Louisiana State University with dual degrees in Food Science and Nutrition and Dietetics and completing her dietetic internship, Molly Kimball launched the nutrition program at Ochsner Fitness Center.
In her role as Nutrition Manager, Molly has worked with thousands of clients and professional athletes, and teaches the nutrition course for Ochsners University of Queensland Medical School.
In 2013 she founded Eat Fit, a nonprofit initiative of Ochsner Health that works with local restaurants, markets, schools and corner stores to develop & identify nutritious items on the menu. The Eat Fit team of dietitians works with more than 500 restaurant partners in six regions across Louisiana with the mission of providing easy-to-access real-world education, inspiration and resources on wellness and nutrition.
As a regular contributor to national publications, Molly is a nutrition journalist who hosts a weekly podcast, FUELED wellness + nutrition, and serves as the nutrition expert for New Orleans ABC affiliate WGNO with weekly TV segments on WGNOs Good Morning New Orleans.
Molly is the recent recipient of the Louisiana Champion award by LWCC, and – perhaps her favorite accolade – she received the Risk Taker award by Ochsner Health leadership. Molly prefers a good walk-and-talk with colleagues versus desk or Zoom meetings, and when shes not immersed in the world of nutrition science, you can find her creating functional pottery, a perfect antidote to technology and deadlines.
