I used to be where you are.
Now I'm here to help you feel better, too.
I'm Jess, your resident gut healing expert. And I'm so glad you're here!
I didn’t set out to be a gut healing expert. I like to say that this life found me.
My gut-related health issues started with my Celiac Disease diagnosis in 2011. And from there I struggled for years, never able to get a leg up on my symptoms. My struggles peaked in 2017 when I landed in the hospital, not able to eat anything without extreme nausea and reflux, having lost a lot of weight, and severely dehydrated. No one could tell me what was wrong with me.
It wasn’t until I teamed up with a functional practitioner that I was able to learn that an H pylori infection was behind my debilitating nausea and reflux. So I dove into the research, learned so much from my practitioner, and was able to overcome my upper GI symptoms and H pylori infection.
Since then, I’ve been able to take control of my gut health, have two healthy babies, and turn my passion for research-backed healing and holistic health into a career as a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner.
Now it’s my goal to help YOU find the same freedom and healing that I’ve found in a real food diet, holistic lifestyle, and personalized supplementation.
My illness was truly a blessing in disguise. It’s given me the personal experience to back up my science-minded brain so that I can be the most compassionate, effective practitioner – helping you overcome your upper GI symptoms and H pylori for good.
