Born and raised in Arizona, Preslie has always loved being outside and physical active. As an adolescent volleyball player turned competitive bodybuilder, she cultivated an interest in nutrition younger than most. After being diagnosed with an eating disorder, and later being plagued with chronic illness, coupled with learning more about exercise, wellness and physiology, she has realized the importance of strength and loving what you’re doing. These experiences gave her an opportunity to discover not only how food impacts performance and body composition, but overall quality of life. Her values are rooted in practicing gratitude and integrity, to be continuously learning, and live both passionately and balanced. She got her degree in Nutrition with an emphasis in Communication at ASU, and is a CrossFit L1 coach.
I am a nutrition consultant and coach passionate about helping people reach their health goals and feel awesome! I work with clients in person, by phone, and by Skype/Facetime around the world! We develop a customized approach to help with losing weight, increasing energy, reducing health risks, or just plain getting healthy!
The one-size fits all approach does not work, and I love teaching my clients about the importance of clean, healthy eating to nourish their bodies from the inside out! I provide the encouragement, education, and accountability people need to FINALLY accomplish those goals that they were never able to reach before.
As a former NCAA college basketball player and state champion tennis player, I am passionate about staying fit and doing activities that you love! However, I have found that how you fuel your body has a much bigger impact on weight management.

My name is Katerina and I currently live in San Francisco, CA. I have a degree in Clinical Nutrition from UC Davis, am a Certified Personal Trainer, and currently work as both a nutritionist and emcee for the NBA Sacramento Kings.
I fell in love with fitness during my first year in college. I remember the EXACT moment. I was scarfing down a Carl’s Junior Western Bacon Cheeseburger, large curly fries, and large Dr. Pepper. I started eating my friends leftovers after I finished all of my food. I remember her saying “Wow. You’re still hungry?” From that moment on I knew I needed to change my lifestyle.
Growing up, I was always an athlete. My athletic background started with my love for gymnastics. I was a gymnast for ten years before I transitioned that into a love for dancing. I danced throughout high school and once I graduated, all physical activity stopped. Fast forward to my Western Bacon Cheeseburger and I was living the “Freshman Fifteen.”
I felt awful. Not only was I self-conscious of my body, but I was the most tired, sluggish, and lazy 19-year-old anyone would’ve ever met. The day after my Carl’s Junior realization, I began researching diets and weight-loss “secrets.” This hobby turned into an obsession which would eventually become my career. I was so overwhelmed with the amount of information available on nutrition that I decided to dedicate my education to the subject. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Clinical Nutrition from UC Davis in 2014.
While in college I was accepted as a dancer for the Sacramento Kings. I felt fortunate to be the female ambassador for the Kings and travel around the world representing and promoting the organization. During my time with the Kings I was honored to be chosen as a captain two years in a row.
While I was learning all about the body and the effects diet and exercise has on it, I was experimenting on my own. I competed in my first NPC Bikini Competition when I was 20 years old. Unfortunately, the crash dieting, post-show weight gain, and constant body image stigma working in the NBA led me to have a binge eating disorder. I would pretend that my diet was good, but I suffered from a never ending cycle of self-hate, guilt, and binging. I would have periods of time where I would be motivated to stay on my diet, or at least that’s what I thought motivation was, but it was just restriction and punishment. Luckily, I found IIFYM and macros saved my life.
IIFYM (if it fits in your macros) is a LIFESTYLE, not a diet. It teaches you what a TRUE portion is and the nutritional value of foods while providing no restrictions and allowing you to achieve any goal you want. It is personalized to your body. There is no ONE diet or even a generic macronutrient prescription that will satisfy everyone’s needs. My goal is to spread this message. I care about the process of an individual’s success. I care about how you feel about yourself. I care. If you feel confident, strong, and sexy in your own skin, you will be unstoppable.
I am very excited to partner up with Monolith, both of us have similar visions in how we want to help people achieve success the RIGHT way. We care about the process of an individuals success. I look forward to see what the future holds for us as a team.
