Top Specialties: SIBO, Hormone Balancing, Genomics, GI issues
My professional background includes Functional Medical Nutrition Therapy, Genomic Medicine, Gastrointestinal Nutrition, Master NLP practitioner training and Hypnotherapy. I received my bachelor’s degree with distinction in Nutrition Science from the University of Minnesota and continued on to the prestigious Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN for my dietetic internship. In a desire to be on the cutting edge of nutrition’s impact on
health and wellbeing I pursued additional training in Integrative and Functional Medical
In addition to IFMNT certification, I became a Certified Food and Spirit Practitioner where physical health meets spiritual health. Rounding out these physical modalities I
included hypnotherapy, NLP, and Theta Healing into my practice to address the energetic and subconscious programing clients often struggle with.
These dynamic methods help me look at the whole person; physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually to develop real personalized care for my clients. I believe health is more than just the food we eat, it’s also about the environment we live in, our history, stress exposure, sleep, subconscious programing, and the genes we have that interplay with it all.
My experience includes motivating individuals through their weight loss journeys, helping families and kids improve their diets, helping people with Type 2 diabetes reduce or eliminate their medications, and helping people overcome issues with digestion and hormone imbalances.
I utilize functional medical testing to get to the root issues of “why” someone isn’t feeling well and addresses it with lifestyle changes, strategic supplement use, mindset work, and of course diet. I enjoy giving cooking demos and presentations to athletic groups, new moms, corporations, and inspired home cooks. Ultimately, my quest is to offer my clients personalized, compassionate care along with the latest in nutrition science to support all areas of their health and lifestyle.
