Kay Fruth, Certified Nutritionist, Director of Bali Wellness

As I was born and raised in California, I have, over the years, developed a love for animals, good food, good wine and people.  All of my life I have been a caregiver of sorts, with a passion for helping wherever I could.  I spent much of my career in the entertainment industry, but always had a love for sports and food.

As I got older, I found that my love for exercise and good nutrition worked right in to my desire to help people.  Today I am working as a certified nutritionist, and I’m able to put my various passions into practice.  I feel that if you can imagine it, you can do it.  So helping people to get their lives back by thinking a little differently about the way they eat their food, makes all the difference in the world.  It certainly has in mine.
