Hello. My name is Pat Katepoo and I’m a current member of AND and DBC and a former Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, with 20+ years in the field.
I’ve also been advising career women on how to negotiate flexible work arrangements, longer maternity leaves, and higher salaries, right here at WorkOptions.com, online since 1997.
The majority of my pay raise clients—and success stories—are RDNs. Why? Because I know the profession, the people, and the untapped pay raise potential that’s costing you thousands of dollars a year. Let’s turn it around for you and the profession.
Let’s Meet in Washington DC
The Dietitians in Business & Communications DPG is sponsoring a special workshop on Saturday, October 20, the morning before FNCE’s opening session. I am one of two featured speakers for the event titled, 2 Skills to Supercharge Your Career: Negotiate with Confidence, Influence with Impact. Hope we can meet up there. Here are the program details including learning objectives (4 CPEUs expected). Use the left side menu on this page for registration and other details.
Do You Struggle with Fears About Asking for a Raise?
You’re not alone. When it comes to asking for money, it’s different for women. There’s a mix of emotion that hinders the request and keeps women from reaching their pay potential. If you can relate, watch my five-minute video, Underpaid and Afraid to Ask. (Includes the cure.)

How to Tap Into Your Pay Potential
Did you miss my FNCE presentation on raising your salary? Sarah was there and here’s what she had to say:
Pat’s content blew me away. It completely changed my perspective on how to approach salary negotiations. What I learned and applied contributed to a sizable double-digit salary increase—way more than I expected. Sarah Hendren, MS, RDN, LDN, CD, Nutrition & Quality Assurance Manager, Dallas, TX
