Specializing in Personalized Nutrition Care with an Integrative and Functional Medicine Perspective


Hi! Welcome to Food Sense Nutrition. I am glad you are here! Likely you are looking for some help with what and how you eat.

Well perfect, because that is what I LOVE to do! I am passionate about helping people discover tasty foods that meet their nutrition needs and support their health goals.

It is amazing how simple diet changes can help improve blood glucose, reduce cholesterol, eliminate food sensitivities, and much, much more. You just have to get started. I'm ready. Are you?

While I work with all sorts of very common medical conditions, I come at nutrition with an Integrative and Functional Medicine perspective. What does that mean?

All it means is that I'm looking at you as a whole person. I don't just look at your diagnosis. My job is to understand you as a person and all the contributing factors that make you who you are.

That allows me to better understand what type of diet and health recommendations will likely work best for you, not only in improving your current condition but also supporting all the systems in your body.

That's what we mean by "integrative." It is a whole-person approach.

As a Registered Dietitian, I work with many conditions that can be helped with diet. Have a read through to see if my areas of expertise are what you are looking for.


Do any of these pertain to you? Are you tired of feeling sick and ill? Then let’s work together to find the right diet strategy to get you not only well but full of the energy and vitality you know you possess.

Food is extremely powerful. Simply changing what you eat and finding the rights foods for YOU can make a powerful impact on your health and support healing.

In some cases, however, certain foods can be triggers. This is often true with migraines, IBS, fibromyalgia and other symptoms related to food sensitivities.

If you suspect this may be your problem, let’s talk about strategies to get those problematic foods out of your diet. As a Certified LEAP Therapist I am an expert when it comes to food sensitivity reactions and can guide you on a path to healing and recovery.

Food sensitivities and other conditions can also be linked to a wide range of digestive disorders. Do you experience persistent reflux, constipation or diarrhea, abdominal pain, abdominal bloating, or other digestive issues?

If you have tried everything and just can't figure out how achieve "normal" digestion again, it's time to talk. I work with SIBO, IBS, GERD, ulcerative colitis, and many other common digestive issues. 

Let's work on a plan to get your system back to functioning as it should so you can stop thinking about it and live your life to the fullest. 


Need to drop a few pounds? Recently pregnant or have a picky eater? Have a teen or grandparent who needs some diet advice?

Whatever weight you are and whatever life stage you are in, a healthy diet can help prevent a host of health problems and support you in your quest for optimal wellness.

Let’s work together to make sure your diet and lifestyle are at their best. As they say, prevention is key, no matter what age you are.

Having two kids myself, I know that nutrition is vital at every life stage. It's never too early (or too late) to get started.

For those of you wanting to get pregnant, are pregnant, or have kids, this can be the BEST time to get nutrition guidance. Don't put it off!
