PHILOSOPHY

Jessica believes that individualized treatment is paramount in the diet industry.

Ongoing motivation and support are provided to keep clients on track and help them achieve success.

PERSONAL BACKGROUND

Jessica was originally inspired to become a Registered Dietitian after developing multiple food intolerances during her freshman year of college, and entering into a grueling effort of trial and error to identify what those specific foods were. Noticing a need for increased resources and professionals in this field, Jessica chose to become one herself. She has since gained credentialing as a Certified LEAP Therapist to help others manage inflammatory conditions through LEAP elimination diet therapy in conjunction with Mediator Release Testing (MRT), a blood test for food sensitivities.

While at the University of Michigan, Jessica gained her first exposure into the exciting world of competitive sports, pursued an internship with the team sports nutritionist, and has been working with the athletic population ever since.
