"I Should Be Making More Than This!"

Many RDNs feel that they're underearning for the work they do. You too? In fact, you DO have more pay potential at your current job, but you're not tapping into it. Let's change that in two simple steps:

1. Take the FREE online Pay Raise Strategy Starter Course.

2. Find out how to start the pay raise conversation with your boss. To get a free file of ready-made scripted opening lines, click here.

I invite you to be a part of a growing community of RDNs who are equipped and ready to ask for—and get—the salary they deserve.

This is probably the most practical, useful information for my career that I have ever seen. Wish I'd had it 25 years ago!

Who's Behind Pay Raise Prep School for Women?

Pat Katepoo

Hi, my name is Pat Katepoo. I’m a former RDN and a current member of AND and DBC. For years, I’ve been advising career women on how to negotiate flexible work and higher pay raises at my first website,, online since 1997.

Many of my early pay raise clients—and success stories—were RDNs. Those who followed my Pay Raise Process℠ have enjoyed salary increases of 10%, 14% and more. It surprised even me!

Now, as founder of Pay Raise Prep School for Women, I’m again focusing on RDNs. Why? Because I know the profession, the people, and the untapped pay raise potential that is costing you thousands of dollars a year. Let's turn it around for you and the profession. Join me. Start here.

Thanks for the opportunity to present at the DBC Spotlight Session at FNCE 2016 in Boston. Along with my friend and co-speaker Jean Caton, the topic presented was Take Charge of Your Career: Earn Greater Income with Higher Impact. The FNCE On-Demand recording of the session is now available. Here's a written excerpt.

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.

You Downloaded the AND Salary Survey...Now What?

The latest Compensation & Benefits Survey of the Dietetics Profession was released in December 2015 by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND).

It's free to AND members. Have you downloaded it?

Maybe you're wondering how to best use it to make more money. Let me get you started.

The survey is the go-to guide I tell all my RDN clients to use to help them determine the market value of their position. That’s the starting point of the Pay Raise Process℠ that yields big results.

I advise them to take three specific steps, the exact same steps you'll take using the worksheets in the free Pay Raise Strategy Starter Course. Enroll today, finish today, then go for higher pay.

"I negotiated a salary adjustment of 25%. [My administrator] was only going to offer me 7%. I informed her of the research I had completed...We both left the meeting happy and me less financially stressed. Thanks for your help." GJ, Long Term Care RDN, Wisconsin

Your [process] gave me the confidence to ask for what I wanted. Using the strategies to negotiate pay in response to a new job offer, I was able to reach the top of the position's salary range, a nearly 25% pay increase from the position I left. Thank you!
