Hey there, I'm Mandy
I was diagnosed with PMDD 15 years ago and my own story has included everything from dark rock bottoms to symptom-free months. On top of that, I had been dealing with IBS, PCOS, and depression for years. I was fed up with conventional band-aid solutions and decided to forge my own path.
All my trial and error early on led me to a path of studying and practicing integrative & functional nutrition. For the longest time I felt broken and at war with my body. When I finally stopped to listen to my body, I started to work WITH my body instead of against it. Over time, I was able to put my metabolic puzzle together for a comprehensive approach to relief.
I'd be honored to help you do the same.
As a functional registered dietitian, I believe that we are all fundamentally healthy. But when we’re overwhelmed by debilitating symptoms, it’s easy to see our bodies as broken. My mission is to help my clients go beyond symptom relief and to re-discover true health and wellbeing.
What fuels me as a practitioner are those “aha” moments when my clients understand why they feel the way they do and finally have hope that they can feel different. The second is seeing that transformation of health in action—the type of change that can only occur when we combine a root-cause approach with personalized coaching. It’s that moment when my client says, “Wow, so this is how I am supposed to feel!”
No matter what brings you here, please know this first: you deserve to feel your best.
How I got here:
My wellness story started with significant digestive issues as a child that landed me at the doctor’s office countless times with no clear answers. As a young adult I struggled with mood and hormone issues that disrupted my life, every single month. When I noticed the impact that exercise, food, and mindset had on my own health, I decided to pursue a career that allowed me to help connect these dots for others.
Fascinated with the connection between the mind and body, I studied both nutrition and psychology at Concordia College and Pennsylvania State University. While I kicked off the early part of my career in the supermarket industry and working overseas in the Middle East 12 years ago, I've spent most of my career in the health and fitness industry.
My eyes truly opened to the power of functional nutrition when I started exploring deeper solutions to my own health issues. Since then, I’ve devoted countless hours to studying integrative and functional nutrition therapy.
In my last position I led the national team of dietitians for a premier wellness company and served as the go-to dietitian for VIP and complex cases. I’ve reviewed thousands of lab assessments and what I loved most about that was cutting out the guesswork and creating a plan unique to their physiology.
Today, I work with clients virtually to help them re-discover peaceful periods and balanced moods through a functional nutrition approach. I'm so glad you're here!
On a personal note...
I believe in getting real with my clients—I’m not perfect and don’t expect you to be either. As a busy working mom with an energetic preschooler, teenage stepson and infant twins, I totally get the challenges that come with a chaotic family and work life. And don’t worry—as an average cook (at best) myself, we’ll focus on quick recipes and practical strategies to support your nutrition plan.
When I’m not serving clients, I feed my soul with family time, music, and movement. I start my days with morning snuggles with the fam and a quick meditation to focus my mind. I feel most alive whenever music is involved, whether it’s playing violin with an orchestra, listening to punk rock while lifting weights, or dancing salsa (that’s how I met my Mister!). And while I love a good mystery novel, you’re just as likely to find me reading research articles or attending functional medicine courses. I know the more I learn, the better I can support my clients in their pursuit of optimal health.
Enough about me.... More about you!
