CPC's Healthy School "Dream Team"
Chris Lineberry, Ed.D, has been an educator since graduating with his undergraduate degree from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 1994. The true beginning of the IMPACT program started while Chris was 36, working as a Principal at Richfield Elementary in North Carolina. Overweight and out of shape, Chris suffered a minor heart attack at school and was carried out on a stretcher. Realizing that a major cause of his condition was stress, Chris, along with his staff set out to improve coping mechanisms for staff and improve staff health. The discussion naturally progressed to student health and wellness. Armed with data on 4th grade students, 44% of whom had BMI rankings in the 85th percentile or above, Chris threw the sugary, highly caloric foods out of his cafeteria, implemented an hour of physical activity daily for students, and required staff to integrate health and wellness into the curriculum. Student achievement improved, staff attendance improved, and student BMI decreased. Richfield Elementary achieved 3 years of academic growth in a two year time period. The results earned him and his staff the North Carolina Prevention Partners School of Excellence award in 2007 as well as the designation as a School of Distinction, ranking Richfield Elementary in the top 10% of schools in North Carolina. This also prompted the North Carolina Department of Public Health to produce a documentary focusing on this work.
Dr. Lineberry has turned around multiple schools in various states utilizing health and wellness as the centerpiece. In the Spring of 2015 he and Stanfield Elementary School, in Stanfield, Arizona were recognized by the USDA-FNS HealthierUS Schools Challenge with the Gold with Distinction award level within one year of his arrival. The Gold with Distinction award certifies that Stanfield has met the highest standards of nutrition and physical education. Only 375 schools out of 100,000 have received this honor in the 11 year history of the program. Stanfield is the first school in Arizona to receive this award. In addition to the HUSSCC Gold with Distinction Award, the Silver Award in 2016 from The Alliance for a Healthier Generation and recognition of administrative excellence by the Arizona Health and PE Teachers Association, Dr. Lineberry and his school have earned the Gold Award from HAWP (first school in AZ to do so), a Special Congressional Commendation from Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, recognition from the White House and The First Lady, and most recently, Dr. Lineberry and his school have been awarded a $100,000 school and community fitness center by the National Foundation for the Governors Fitness Councils for their work toward improving student, staff, and community health. Chris was recently named the 2016 - 2017 Arizona Health and Physical Education Administrator of the Year.

Hi! I’m Kylene, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) currently working in the NBA. I was previously a dietitian at the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine. Wondering what brought me to this place? It’s an interesting story.
I grew up on processed foods, similar to most American children, especially those involved in sports. Eventually as the years passed, I developed a strong interest in nutrition. I started to realize that the better I ate, the better I felt and played. This led me to become an RDN.
I started my career practicing conventional nutrition, teaching the food pyramid and calorie counting. Over the past eight years, my way of thinking and eating has been completely transformed.
After completing my dietetic internship, I dove headfirst into the world of work and shortly thereafter I was hired by a world-renowned hospital. Over time, I noticed how exhausted I felt each day. Despite adequate sleep, I could not function or train for a race without coffee. I started to notice that foods I had consumed my entire life were no longer well tolerated and my body composition wasn’t what it used to be. BUT my diet was “well balanced” in the eyes of conventional nutrition and my doctor said my lab’s values were “perfectly normal”. How could this be?? Was I working too hard? Was this premature aging?! To make a long story short, I later discovered that I had been walking around with food sensitivities and nutrient deficiencies for years and it was never recognized by any health care provider.
Over time, I have come to find that this is an incredibly common occurrence and the symptoms, although subtle, often begin years before the individual realizes that there is a problem.
Fast forward to today, I feel better than ever and I have made it my mission to help others reach their fullest health potential, athletes and non-athletes alike.
During this journey, I’ve had the privilege of assisting thousands of individuals to achieve their dreams. I’ve worked with conference champions and world champions. I’ve seen the minds and bodies of those who felt weight loss was a hopeless endeavor, be transformed. I’ve also had the honor of helping many individuals reverse their chronic pain and fatigue.
The best part? I’ve done it all using food as my guiding principle. These individuals have found their competitive edge on the field and in the game of life.
