Tracy Ryan-Borchers, registered dietitian, is a part of our nutrition team. Tracy is a seasoned registered dietitian with experience in clinical dietetics in a variety of acute and ambulatory care settings serving patients with chronic conditions, including diabetes, cardiovascular and renal disease.  

Tracy is a proud graduate of Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana, class of 1989 where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in dietetics. Soon after, she moved to Chicago, Illinois where she completed a Dietetic Internship Program at Rust-Presbyterian-St. Lukes Medical Center in 1990. And in 1991, Tracy received a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition from the College of Health Sciences, Department of Clinical Nutrition at Rush University in Chicago. For ten years, Tracy worked as a dietitian in health centers in Chicago, Illinois and across Montana state. In 2004, she achieved a PhD in Human Nutrition from Washington State University in Pullman, Washington. She then moved with her family to Portland, Oregon to begin her position as Assistant Professor and Dietetic Internship Director at Oregon Health & Science University. Then in 2013, she obtained a clinical position with the Portland VA Medical Center.  

In 2016, Tracy moved from Oregon to Great Falls, Montana where she started working for Fresenius Kidney Care. She provided individualized renal nutritional care to patients receiving hemodialysis and/or home dialysis. For several years right before joining the Great Falls Clinic, Tracy managed a staff of renal dietitians in Montana, Idaho and Eastern Washington and continued to provide diet counseling to patients with kidney disease requiring dialysis treatment.  

In her free time, Tracy enjoys being outside with her husband and friends and exploring the great state of Montana. She also loves visits with their two “grown-up” kids and sharing meals with friends and family.
