Why functional medicine? What is functional medicine?
Functional medicine is an individualized, patient-centered approach to medicine. Functional medicine addresses the root cause of someone’s disease and treats from a holistic point of view. This includes using lifestyle modifications, nutrition, and supplements as needed, as a part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
Functional medicine and nutrition work great alongside traditional medicine. So whether you’re trying lose weight or struggling with some other condition such as diabetes, high cholesterol, fatty liver, diverticulosis, reflux, etc. I want you to ask yourself what is the missing link in your current treatment plan? Why are you still struggling or why is your condition not resolved or under control? More often than not, it’s nutrition or dietary changes or you haven’t addressed the root cause of your issues. I can help you implement the changes you need to not only be healthier, but create sustainable lifestyle changes that will last a lifetime!

My mission is to develop a relationship with you, my patients, to help reclaim ownership over your health no matter how complicated the challenges. It is my life’s passion to provide individualized Functional Medicine care while walking with you on this journey of transformative healing.
To achieve this I believe in blending cutting-edge science with traditional wisdom to address the root cause of disease instead of merely symptoms. I deeply explore genetic, biochemical, dietary and lifestyle factors, then leverage this data to direct personalized medical nutrition therapy plans that lead to improved patient outcomes. A customized nutrition approach cannot be understated as it is either the sustenance for optimal health, or promotion toward disease. Nowhere is this more acknowledged and rooted then integrative and functional medicine. As Hypocrites famously states, “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine thy food”.
I know first hand the feeling of frustration and helplessness that comes with going to specialists and getting numerous diagnostic tests done, only to be told nothing was found wrong even while symptoms worsen. In my situation, the right partnership that enabled me to begin healing came when I finally saw a Functional Medicine provider recommended by a colleague. In fact, it is my own health issues that have led to my educational pursuit of nutrition and functional medicine as a career.
Outside the clinic setting, I have been honored to serve in multiple state legislative committee positions as a contributing diabetes specialist, spoken at many conferences–including the American Heart Association’s annual Healthy Heart Summit, and have taught nutrition at the university level.

Though I love educating the next generation of clinicians, my favorite time spent is still working one-on-one with patients ready to invest in themselves by walking the path to optimal health. If this is you, let’s get started!

I have been in the fitness industry since 2015. I became a personal trainer once I finished my time in the United States Marine Corps. My sense of duty and purpose has really stuck with me. I really enjoy, and take pride in helping everyone I meet find realistic ways of making healthy living a part of their every day lives. I understand that most of us aren’t looking to become athletes and that is more than okay. It’s actually great! My overall goal is to help each person I meet become healthier, happier and more capable of enjoying their lives to the fullest. Fitness has become such an integral part of my life and it has literally inspired me to do everything possible to help others realize just how capable they are of reaching their fitness goals.
