A practitioner that truly listens, holds your hand every step of the way, and genuinely cares that you get better.
A deep knowing that everything will be okay so you can go out and get that promotion, go on your dream trip, or spark a new relationship.
I’m the founder of Thrive by Food and am obsessed with all things digestion, autoimmunity, and hormones. I work with determined women who want to know why they don’t feel well so they can become wildly in love with their bodies again.
I was incredibly sick for 8 years and had no idea what was going on with my body. I felt like I was living my days in waiting rooms, in line at CVS, and in my bed -- yet I was getting nowhere. As the days went on, I became more and more reactive to foods, called out of work more days than I’d like to admit, and missed out on dream vacations and time with friends.
One day, as I was facing my gastroenterologist as he told me my body stopped responding to medications and we had to discuss surgery, the light turned on for me.
I didn't have to accept this path, this lack of answers, and this way of living. There had to be another way. So I began working with functional practitioners who helped me use food as medicine, lab tests to get to the root cause (hint: I found what it was), supplements to heal, and other techniques that would help my body thrive. After experiencing how fast my body responded, I decided to become a certified functional practitioner to help others find their own path.
Now, after years of studying, I’ve embodied all that is functional nutrition and whole body health into my private coaching program, Nurture. Nurture is unlike any other health coaching program because we leave no stone unturned (digestion, hormones, autoimmunity - you name it!) and I genuinely care that you get better. I’ll help you run the right lab tests that will uncover the root cause of your condition, and through strategic food and lifestyle changes, we’ll love your body back into vibrant health. I’ll be there for you every step of the way, because I know how powerful it feels to feel held during this journey.
You’re early on in your health journey or diagnosis and know you want to take a natural approach that will work with your body, not against it. But you need nurturing guidance to know what to do, why, when to do it, and how to know if it’s working. That’s where Nurture comes in. You’ll go from overwhelmed and in pain to confident, full of answers, and on your way to recovery in the time it takes a sprout to grow!
This isn’t your first rodeo, but you’re not about to waste time on anything that won’t make a measurable difference for your health. You’ve tried some supplements and diets but really have no idea which one is best for your body. Cut to the chase in Nurture by working with a practitioner who can pinpoint what foods will help you thrive, a supplement plan that will fuel your body at the deepest level, and who will run the most advanced lab tests to find answers for you that no one else has looked for.
You’ve got a fulfilling life, eat a feel-good diet, are in recovery from a previous health setback, but you still get some concerning symptoms -- stabbing stomach pains after eating certain foods, temporary lapses in memory, decreasing energy levels, and a libido that’s not-so-sexy. In Nurture, we’ll take an end-to-end look at your health history and current health plan, pinpoint the root cause of these symptoms, take a proactive approach to your long-term health, and fill you up with answers and a solid plan you’ll be bursting to implement.
You’ve tried everything -- supplements, diets, meditation, and have hired several practitioners, but no matter what you do, you seem to still have lingering symptoms and no practitioner has found the root cause or given you a complete plan of action. In Nurture, we’ll take a refreshing and comprehensive look at your entire health and what you’re doing, putting the pieces together, answering the unknowns, and moving you forward in a way that feels ohhhh-soooo good in your body and easy to manage.
Kristin made me feel very comfortable during the entire process, from lab testing to changing my diet, and we set up a plan that felt very complete. I finally felt like I had answers and no longer overwhelmed about what was going on. I was no longer taking a shot in the dark.

I am so hopeful about my health now thanks to Kristin. I'm so thankful for having you guiding me through all of this and I can’t believe in how such a short period of time all these incredible changes took place.

I love that I’m discovering what’s best for ME in the program - there are so many diets out there but I want to know what’s going to best fuel me. So many things out there and the contradict themselves but you cut through that. I’m excited to say that I’m now able to work full time, and I have more energy!

Never feel alone again on this journey. I’ll be by your side every day for the entire 6 months, walking you step-by-step through the process so you feel clarity and confidence that you’re doing all the right things for your health.
60 dedicated minutes centered around your health every two weeks where we’ll dive into everything from digestion to hormones to immunity to detoxification and more. With 10x more time than what a conventional practitioner will spend with you, imagine what you’ll learn and walk away with after each session (hint: the root cause, an end-to-end action plan, and a deeper love for your body).
Not only do you get two full hours with me each month, you have 24/7 access to contact me with any questions big or small, day or night. Imagine having an expert on hand for an entire 6 months so you never have to wonder or research on your own again. In Nurture, that’s exactly what you get.
To complement your private coaching, you have the option to also join any of my group programs for free, as well as any other courses that I launch during your program. From gut health programs to hormone health and stress management programs, take advantage of everything I offer so you can go from in the dark and in pain to confident and at ease in your body, ready to take on whatever life will throw at you next!
As a private coaching client, you can run an unlimited number of functional lab tests, from hormone and stool testing to micronutrients and autoimmunity testing. I will guide you every step of the way, from what lab tests will best illuminate what’s at the root of your health concerns as well as walking you through your results and a natural plan of action customized around your results and your goals.
Your existing protocol is piecemeal and impossible to follow day-to-day. Throughout your program and after every call, I will lay out an exact plan of action suited for your body and that will work alongside your lifestyle. Protocols encompass everything from food recommendations to stress management techniques to natural supplements to exercise/movement, and even deeper emotional and spiritual strategies. I'll pull together everything into one seamless plan that’s crystal clear and built to help you thrive.
I specialize in complex, interrelated health conditions so there isn't much I haven't seen at this point. Visit my Digestion, Autoimmunity and Hormones page where I detail out the most common conditions I've seen and am trained to address and if you don't see yours there, let's talk about it and if I can help you during a free 20-minute introductory call. I'll give you my honest opinion if I can help, and if not, I can point you in another direction. As a functional practitioner, I am trained to address any condition in the body by taking a root-cause approach which is why I have been so successful at helping people with a wide array of conditions.
Your results will be directly correlated to how much effort you put into the program, which is why it's oh-so important to me that the plans I help you create feel practical, straightforward, and exciting to you so you can be successful at implementing them. Since everyone comes into the program in a different stage in their journey, and because we are all complex and amazingly different human beings, I cannot *guarantee* results, but if you follow the steps I'll lay out for you in the program, and are dedicated to make a change, you will experience exciting change. By the end of the program, you'll have all the know-how and resources to become a life-long health detective and will be well on your way to feeling better - for good!
It varies based on the test, but can range from $149-$359 typically. All lab tests can be paid using a credit card, HSA card, or FSA card. Lab fees are separate from coaching fees for the reason that labs require that patients pay directly, otherwise I would loop them into my pricing. For the amount of data each test provides, each test is easily worth even more than it costs, and the amount of clarity we gain and action we can take from every single test can last an entire program. I've run all of the tests I run on my clients so I'll walk you through the process and any questions you have.
Yes! I have clients worldwide. All of our sessions are done via video conferencing in a secure web app so that we can meet face-to-face no matter where in the world you are. I also have the ability to order lab testing just about anywhere in the world. When we have our introductory call before you join the program, we can discuss the details of shipping lab kits to your location, but there are many options available today which is exciting!
