Hi, I'm Katie!

I’m a Functional Nutritionist and Personal Trainer

Functional nutrition is an approach to nutrition and health care that focuses on supporting the body's optimal functioning through personalized dietary strategies. It emphasizes the interconnectedness of different bodily systems and seeks to address underlying imbalances that may contribute to various health issues.

Symptoms/ Diagnosis I work with:

Autoimmune Diseases

Diabetes/Metabolic Syndrome

Food Sensitivities

Hormonal imbalance

Chronic Pain/Inflammation

Mood Disorders Anxiety/Depression

Detoxification Imbalances

Digestive Disorders

Fatigue and sleep

Weight Management

Various chronic conditions

Key principles of functional nutrition include:

  • Personalization: Functional nutrition takes into account an individual's unique biochemistry, genetics, lifestyle, and health history.
  • Root Cause Analysis: Instead of simply addressing symptoms, functional nutrition aims to identify and address the root causes of health issues. This involves looking beyond surface-level symptoms to understand the underlying factors contributing to a person's health concerns.

balance diet

Functional nutrition places a strong emphasis on consuming whole, nutrient-dense foods that provide essential vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds. It encourages a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, healthy fats, and herbs/spices.

Digestion Icon

Gut Health

The role of the gut in overall health is a central focus of functional nutrition. A healthy gut microbiome is believed to play a crucial role in digestion, nutrient absorption, immune function, and even mental health. Functional nutrition often involves strategies to support and maintain a healthy gut.

As your practitioner I am here to guide, educate, and empower you to become your own health advocate. I’m happy to work along side your allopathic doctor so you can reach your health goals.

how it works?

First up, we'll start with a discovery call where we'll get to know each other, chat about your goals, and see if we're a match.

Then, we'll dive into a 1:1 coaching program where I’ll assess your blood work, health history, Wellness questionnaire, and food journal. Based on that information I will have you work through protocols that address your goals, report of findings and foundational goals for lifestyle, nutrition and stress reduction.

SKincare I Use......

We have an elevated brand with nearly 100 products and a very unique stance on beauty. A clear mission on bio ​active olive leaf elixir instead of water, consumer transparency, and sustainability. We

We have an umbrella of brands that are constantly expanded into emerging markets like waterless beauty, ​hydroxytyrosol in skincare, coffee replacements, and infusing small batch hemp.

But the HEART of our movement is water replaced with the incredible olive leaf elixir and you will find that in every ​single one of our products which sets them apart from any skincare and any supplement.

Frequently asked questions

Do you take insurance?

Unfortunately nutrition and health coaching are not covered by insurance. Although many of my clients have been able to use their HSA for my programs,, supplements and testing.

Will I have to give up all my favorite foods?

No, not always do we need to take out foods to see results. Many times you get to add in more foods! There are those challenging conditions that gluten, dairy and other inflammatory foods do need to be removed for a period of time and can hopefully be reintroduced once the gut healing is complete.

How long will it take to see results from working with you?

That depends on a variety of factors, including your current habits and goals. However, with commitment and consistency, most people begin to see positive changes within a few weeks to a few months.
