 "I met Kirsten at Red Cross after spending 2 weeks with my son in ICU and NICU. While sitting in the dietitian waiting room I was sitting right across her door and something just started making me hope that she’ll be seeing to me as she seemed to be friendly. She is one of the nicest people I have ever met. She was kind and had patience; answered everything I had to ask. She took her time helping me and was passionate about what she was doing. Kirstin is what made me excited about my dietician appointments. She’s beautiful inside and out, she’s extremely helpful and friendly. Because of Kirstin, I was motivated to getting my son to pick up weight and I made sure to adhere to everything she recommended and my son picked up weight beautifully and her applauding me for doing a great job really made me feel successful as a mom. She made me love being a mom and made me excited to feed my baby just to show her how well he is doing."
