I'm Kristen; a Board Certified Holistic Health Practitioner and Certified Nutritionist. I live in Portland, Oregon with my husband, two kids, and one crazy dog. 🤪

I work with clients nationwide get to the root cause of their symptoms, optimize their health, and thrive! I use evidence-based science and functional lab testing to provide a unique approach to holistic health.

My Story

Not unlike you, I struggled with undereating, dieting, skin and digestive issues. Throughout my life I have seen my diet directly impact my mental, emotional and physical health, and that's what led me here today. I went from barely surviving to thriving, and I'm here to help you do the same!


With a decade of experience learning about nutrition and its effect on our health, I can help you finally reach your health goals through personalized nutrition.

Root Cause Wellness

Root cause wellness is an approach to health and wellness that focuses on finding and addressing the underlying cause of a health issue, rather than just treating its symptoms.


It looks beyond the surface to understand the factors that contribute to the issue, and then uses lifestyle changes, dietary adjustments and (if needed) supplementation to address the root cause.


My Philosophy

Symptoms are not the cause of illness. Symptoms are your body's way of communicating that something is wrong. Instead of covering up your symptoms (or ignoring them), consider why you have them, and what your body is trying to tell you.

The uptick in diabetes, heart disease, cancers, autoimmune disease, and allergies should be alarming to everyone, but we've become numb to it, and have settled into thinking this is our fate. We shouldn't be content to be sick and tired.

And what about the folks who have gone and had XYZ test(s) done and have been told everything is normal, but they don't feel "normal"?

Common ≠ Normal. Normal ≠ Optimal.

My goal as your functional practitioner is to help you find your path to wellness by connecting the dots, and helping you identify, reach, and meet goals toward a sustainable, healthy lifestyle!

Let's create your personalized roadmap together.

Say goodbye to fad diets and conflicting information about nutrition and wellness. Say hello to a personalized approach that works for you!
