Kathleen Corcoran Tuntland

The popular Seattle Sutton Healthy Eating program was launched with the help of nutrition and dietetics graduate Kathleen Corcoran Tuntland ’76.

She partnered with Sutton in 1985 to co-found the business that prepares and delivers healthy meals. Tuntland patented the diet, oversaw construction of a 30,000-square-foot facility, and became chief operations officer. She was instrumental in transforming a vision into a multi-million dollar business. From the start of her career at a health resort to managing a Pizza Hut, Tuntland practiced her love for food preparation and service.

She followed her passion despite a battle against cancer, which ended with her death in 2012.
