This is your gut… not Vegas

You hear the phrase all the time, “what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” This too is up for discussion but not what’s on my mind today. What is, however, is how we think of our gut health. I think the framing is all off. For one, the gut dwells in the dark corners...

Hi, I’m Frankie
Becoming a Functional Nutritionist was born out of my love of working in women’s health and my own health crisis that hit in 2011. It was then that I realized that the body cannot be taken for granted. With two cancer scares in one year, I decided to take my health into my own hands, guided by the intelligence of functional medicine. As a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner, I use data and mindfulness techniques to motivate change. My client relationships are filled with loving connections and precise planning.
