Hello, It’s Great to meet you!
My name is Jennifer and I’m a clinical nutritionist.
If you caught my story, you know I’ve been through the wringer once or twice!
What my life experiences have taught me, is that my life’s purpose is to be of service.
This was most evident to me after my car accident. I survived, because of the selflessness of others. There are no words to describe the gratitude I feel for the people that literally saved my life, put my broken body back together, and got me back on my feet.
I survived that accident, and all of the other challenges the universe has put in front of me. I’m here for a reason.
That reason is to pay it forward.
I’m here to help you and your little one reclaim your health, to feel whole and live the life you deserve to live, and to break through the barriers preventing this from happening.
I’m passionate about this work. I left my corporate job in 2017 to focus full time on my clinical nutrition practice in order to dedicate my time to you to give you the time you need to finally meet your health goals.
My ultimate goal is to help you address your health issues from a root cause perspective.
That means instead of medicating away symptoms, we find out what’s causing them in the first place.
Think of it this way. In order to build a house you need to have a strong foundation, and if your foundation is full of cracks your house is going to fall down. We can compare this to your body in that if you don’t have a strong foundation, you’re going to have poor health. Nutrition, gut problems, and chronic stress are examples of cracks in your foundation.
We need to go back to the basics, and address these cracks to make sure your body has the strong foundation it needs to do what it’s supposed to.
Together we can bridge the gap to seal up those cracks, NOURISH your body, resolve imbalances, beat your symptoms and health problems and restore your health!

I believe that
As your copilot, it’s my life’s purpose to make the road ahead easier for you.
You should listen to your gut (pun sort of intended) and go in the direction of what makes you feel good, powerful, and in control of your life, no matter what anyone says to the contrary.
You are the CEO of you, and the body in which you live.
Unnecessary dietary restrictions have no place in this process. I have zero tolerance for anything that promotes disordered eating habits and eating disorders. Of course my personal experience with this plays a role here.
You have the power, and the right to live a life that you love, and to be your authentic self, again no matter what anyone says to the contrary.
Knowing what to eat doesn’t have to confusing, and good food doesn’t have to be complicated. I rarely make anything that requires more than 3-5 ingredients!
If you truly want to change your life, it takes commitment, consistency and patience. You have to invest in yourself, and believe in yourself. While my job is to make it as easy as possible for you, you will need to put in the work along with me. This is a team effort, we both need to show up 100%. When you commit and go all in, I’ll be right there with you.
Fun facts about me
I was born and raised in Los Angeles (yes some people really are from here).
I’m a gym rat and have 2 gym memberships, just in case (of what I’m honestly not sure).
I have 9 tattoos, but because they are localized in certain areas, they look more like 3 larger pieces.
I have a habit of piercing my own ears. Yes it hurts. I get tired of some of them, will take them out, only to redo them later.
My favorite candy is Atomic Fireball jawbreakers, and I once shattered a crown on my back molar from trying to chew one. Oops!
Poop is one of my favorite things to talk about (so if you have digestive issues, you’re definitely in the right place).
Two of my favorite foods are chicken and eggs. I don’t usually eat them together.
When I was a kid, my favorite snack was a mayo sandwich (mayonnaise on Wonder Bread). I also really loved sliced dill pickles on Wonder Bread. My grandma used to make me one of each when I came to visit.
I have a chihuahua/terrier mix named Lily. She’s my heart outside of my body. I’ve had two other fur baby loves. My rat terrier Dave passed away just shy of 16 years old in 2018, and Allie, my first baby, another rat terrier passed, away in 2009 at age 11 of congestive heart failure.
I often have the mouth of a trucker, to the chagrin of my parents.
