Consult with me or book me for an event

1-on-1 Health Consultations

I am currently taking a gap year to open my practice to new clients and have limited space for private one-on-one health consultations.

My expertise is my four years formally studying the gut microbiome as part of my PhD in nutritional sciences and several years of independent study of the scientific literature. I take an individualized, integrative approach to working with clients and provide suggestions and test interpretation to help you improve your gut health.
