Work With Me
I specialize in several areas of nutrition therapy.
I have worked with both youth and adult athletes in olympic lifting, powerlifting, bodybuilding, track and field, CrossFit, endurance sports, martial arts, gymnastics, dance and general fitness.
My emphasis in Sports Nutrition lies first in fueling for performance and second for cutting weight in weight class-based sports.
Services include macro plans, meal planning guidance, nutritional counseling, habit building, food prep instruction and more.
Gut Health and Detoxification:
My primary area of focus is digestive health and detoxification, which encompasses, but is not limited to:
- Celiac disease and wheat-related food sensitivities
- Gluten sensitivity/pre-Celiac
- Intestinal hyperpermeability (what you commonly hear referred to as “leaky gut” on the Internet)
- Crohn’s disease
- Ulcerative colitis
- Intestinal dysbiosis
- Environmental exposures (such as mold, chemical sensitivities/toxicities)
- Hypochlorhydria (low stomach acid)
- Gall bladder disorders
- Digestive enzyme deficiencies
- Candida/yeast overgrowths/imbalances
- Skin conditions (acne, eczema, psoriasis, etc)
- Autoimmune nutrition (thyroid, RA, Lupus, GI autoimmune disorders previously mentioned, etc)
- Diabetes, pre-diabetes, and insulin resistance
For all patients, I obtain lab work and medically-relevant testing to properly determine the scope of your problems, as well as the best course of action for nutritional and lifestyle interventions.
My protocols are thorough and in depth, and require serious commitment. They focus is on healing first and my requirements for compliance are fairly stringent. For that reason, I want to stress to all prospective clients that results take time and not to get discouraged.
Expect to make some serious long-term changes. But, also expect some serious long-term results.
Currently, my in-person office schedule is almost completely full. I have a few openings for distance-based clients and if you’re interested in setting up a free 15 minute discovery call to see if we would be a good fit to work on your nutrition, fitness or general health goals, please fill out this form:
A little bit about me, although I really hate writing about myself. But here’s what you need to know:
I’m a mom and wife
I like working out
I’ve been a Registered Dietitian for over a decade
I like to eat food
I like to write
So I created this site to encapsulate all of those things, plus more. Like it? Cool. Don’t like it? That’s cool, too. I’m not everyone’s cup of tea.
I got my BS in Dietetics and Nutrition from Kansas State University, my Masters of Dietetics Administration from Utah State University and my MBA through American Military University. Every one of those degrees was going to be ‘my last one.’ So I can’t really say that I’ll ever be done with higher learning, and I appreciate people that love to learn, so if you’re here to learn with me, that’s cool. We’ll get along.
I specialize in two areas of nutrition:
- What I like to call “Unburdening” which includes digestive disorders/autoimmune nutrition/inflammatory conditions and more
- Sports nutrition, which includes general and specific weight loss/weight management for health, sport, or competition
I have access to some phenomenal laboratory testing, through the clinical laboratory that I work for, so if you have interest in that, let me know. I like to talk about the objective data on labs, and the subjective data you’re experiencing day-to-day. Evidence + observation = good experience.
If you’re interested in working with me on a nutrition or health-related goal, fill out the contact form. I’ll get in touch with you shortly after you fill that out.
I work with clients in person on a very limited basis, as my office schedule is rather busy. I have more openings for distance-based clients, but I’ll be super blunt with you: I turn many prospective clients away.
Before you contact me to work with me, understand that my programs are intensive. If you are not ready to at least explore the idea that you need to make some possibly major changes in order to meet whatever goals you have, we probably won’t be a good fit. I WILL work with you to figure out how best to help you make those changes, as long you are willing to meet me in the middle, though. I don’t offer easy fixes or magic pills, and don’t want to give that impression.
I look forward to working with you, if that’s why you’re here. If you’re here to laugh at my bad jokes and talk about poop, then welcome, friend. 🙂
