As a “foodie” and holistic nutritionist, I believe that food is the foundation for health, but I also realize it’s one (big!) piece of the wellness puzzle. My goal is to help people discover how food can positively affect their physical and emotional health and empower them to take charge of their well-being through nutrition. With the right nutrients and health-supportive lifestyle, I believe you can overcome health challenges and support optimal wellness naturally.
I also believe that food is one of life’s great pleasures. Eating should bring daily appreciation and enjoyment, yet for many it causes anxiety and undue stress. I strive to alleviate that stress and bring about positive change through food. My main areas of focus are GI distress, food sensitivities, natural weight management, metabolic imbalances, and pre-and post-natal nutrition. I really enjoy creating individualized, detailed food plans for clients to help them support a variety of health conditions and specific diets (keto, low-FODMAP, vegetarian, anti-inflammatory, gluten/dairy-free, etc.). Instead of merely focusing on calorie counts and macronutrient breakdowns, I work with clients to determine which foods will best support their needs and create a tailored plan for success.
I’m a Master Nutrition Therapist, Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition through the National Association of Nutrition Professionals. I completed the two-year master’s level certification program at the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, earning my diploma as a Master Nutrition Therapist. I’m fascinated by nutrition and public health and am eager to keep learning, thus I’m currently taking classes towards a Master’s in Public Health at the Colorado School of Public Health. Before I embarked on my nutrition career, I attended The University of Texas at Austin (hook ‘em!) where I obtained my BS and BA.
I live in the beautiful town of Fort Collins with my husband, daughter, and dog where we enjoy playing outdoors and discovering fun activities around Colorado. I also love exploring local food and farms, cooking and sharing food with friends/family, and traveling to places near and far.
