Hi! I'm Kelly and I'm so glad you're here!

My ideal client is ready to learn, address her issues, enjoy her food, reignite her spark, and love her life instead of chasing symptoms and conditions. I work with women who are looking to age vibrantly - it’s never too early to start!

My how:

  •  My own history with chronic imbalances led to  

  •  An education in holistic nutritional therapy, which helped me to

  •  Turn back the clock to feeling and performing better than in decades past, which resulted in

  •  Building a practice in which I can help others do the same thing

My why:

  • My former dental hygiene patients accumulating multiple conditions/prescriptions every year

  • My parents' long, slow decline while racking up symptoms, conditions, and prescriptions 

  • My husband's loving encouragement to invest in myself and my passion for functional nutrition

How does Functional Nutrition Therapy work?  

Through attention to

  • the foundations of health

  • lifestyle practices

  • mindset and habit change

You present with your symptoms/complaints and we go back to basics: the foundations.

We focus on your particular 'weak links' in your food, digestion, blood sugar and energy regulation, hydration, fatty acid and mineral balance. This is where the magic starts to happen, and chronic conditions begin to improve.

Lifestyle practices such as managing stress, sleep, and movement are a piece of the puzzle.

Add in some tools for mindset and habit change, and you're well on your way.

This approach can make the difference between thriving and merely existing.

I hope you choose to invest in a future in which you thrive! 

The benefits start today.

What about heredity? 

Your genes do matter - but they're not necessarily your destiny.


Epigenetics - 'on top of the genes' - refers to what steers the course of your genes.


You can influence how your genes express - how they switch on or off - through how you live.

Our choices do make a difference.  Great news for those who want to stack the deck in their favor!

A Word About Labs

I am equipped to work with these labs:

  • Comprehensive blood chemistry

  • GI MAP microbiome and digestion panel

  • MRT food sensitivity test

  • Hormone panels (DUTCH, salivary, adrenal/cortisol)

  • HTMA Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis

 Currently exploring:

  • Genetic testing to find bioindividual tendencies in the way your body responds to diet, exercise, body composition, and healthier aging

Important Disclaimer

When appropriate, I use these tests as an adjunct to the other data I have gathered in your intake forms to help pinpoint where improvements can be made from a nutritional standpoint. I am not a licensed medical professional and thus do not diagnose or treat any medical conditions.
