Hello, my name is Lauren. My passion in nutrition stems from my love for athletics when I was younger, and my interest in learning how to fuel the body for performance. This led me to my undergraduate studies at Miami University in kinesiology and nutrition. While exploring different facets of nutrition, my experience in Africa engaging in nutrition education research opened my eyes to the needs of those from all around the world. As I continued into my dietetic internship I was exposed to various settings, and found myself interested in the areas of nutrition that allowed me to spend time educating on the importance of food, gain an understanding of an individual's needs, and support the formulation of habits around food, stress, sleep, movement and hydration.
Upon moving back to Columbus, Ohio I dove into the world of Functional Medicine with a focus on empowering clients to take control of their health using the healing power of food. My approach is to keep food simple, flavorful and nourishing while supporting a healthy mindset in the process. In some capacity, I have always loved functional medicine but didn’t know it had a name!
I spend my free time in coffee shops, hiking, or planning my next trip! I enjoy a good cookbook, listening to podcasts focused around health & wellness, and engaging in thought provoking conversations. I truly believe that Food is Medicine, and I welcome the opportunity to assist you in reaching your health goals!
