About Kim Plessel:
I love the field of nutrition because it provides an opportunity to establish meaningful relationships with my patients on a very personal journey.
Our food choices are influenced by numerous factors including childhood experiences, personal preferences, social influences and health goals. Enhancing our lifestyle patterns can feel daunting and overwhelming at times, yet hopeful and profoundly powerful. Listening and personally connecting with each of my patients allows me to creatively partner with them to identify small, sustainable improvements that can ultimately transform their lives. I know this to be true, because I have experienced it firsthand. Growing up in the Red River Valley, I was raised on classic farm fare with an affinity for ice cream and soda. I have slowly transformed my diet, embracing healthy, whole foods, learning to cook creative meals, and mindfully enjoying my treats.
Changing our behaviors is a very individualized process. I believe that each person holds the key to their own health so I try to explore creative ways to honor each patient’s intuitive wisdom while encouraging them to nutritionally enhance their well-being and their families’ health.
I am fortunate to to be a part of the Oakdale ObGyn team as I have been a patient here since 2006. My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful experience here as we started our family. We have had two beautiful children, Isaac and Lilah. I continue to enjoy Oakdale’s support to live well.
In my free-time, I enjoy spending time with my family in the Elm Creek Park Reserve. We enjoy running, biking and cross-country skiing. As a busy mom, I also value my quiet time reading and practicing yoga.
