King, who originally hails from Waterford, Ohio, received her bachelor’s degree in dietetics and master’s degree in exercise physiology from The University of Akron, where she also played basketball for four years. She then came to WVU where she earned her second master’s degree in animal and nutritional sciences.
Most recently, King was the director of sports nutrition for WVU’s Olympic sports, where she helped athletes through nutritional counseling, meal guidance and body composition assessments.
She now brings her expertise to the WVU community, making herself available to all students who are looking for help or advice on anything from medical nutrition therapy; activity and sport-related counseling; intuitive eating counseling; body image counseling; and gut-health-related counseling; allergy guidance; or just working through the adjustment to college and what that means for their eating habits.
“Going to college is such a huge transition in so many different areas, and managing your nutrition can help you feel mentally and physically OK,” King said.
King encourages students to submit a request to set up an appointment with her to discuss their personal nutritional needs or goals. She can also be reached at 304-293-4053 or by email at Sina.King@mail.wvu.edu.
