Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I work with you?

  • Because there is a lot of misleading information out there. It took me several years and hours wading through piles of scientific medical and nutrition literature to regain my health. I want to share all that I’ve learned from my own personal journey, my education in nutritional sciences, and my work in functional and integrative medicine so that you can get the information you need without the agony and uncertainty. I spend hours reading scientific literature every week to ensure that I am providing the absolute best care and recommendations to my clients.
  • Because I know firsthand how hard it can be to deal with a chronic health condition. There were many times when I didn’t even know if I would recover, was embarrassed to go out in public, or just broke down completely. I know how important it is to have someone listen to your concerns and actually care. I’m here to listen and help, without passing judgment.
  • Because you need a genuine, die-hard advocate for your health. While I love the human and personalized care aspect of functional medicine, I also love digging in and putting all the pieces together to work out the root cause. I can’t guarantee that I have all the answers – but I can guarantee that if I don’t have an immediate answer, I’ll dive into the scientific literature and try my absolute best to find it. I always seek to provide evidence for my recommendations.

What credentials do you have?

I received my Bachelors in Biology with a concentration in Neuroscience and a minor in Psychology from Kalamazoo College in 2015. I am now a graduate student in the dual degree MD/PhD program at the University of Illinois and was recently recognized by the American Society of Nutrition as an Emerging Leader in Nutrition Sciences. My research focuses on the effects of diet and exercise on the gut microbiome and how this impacts gut and skin health.

I also work part-time as a remote research assistant and content contributor for Chris Kresser, a globally recognized leader in functional and integrative medicine and founder of the Kresser Institute for Functional and Evolutionary Medicine. I have learned an incredible amount from working with him to produce content on a wide variety of topics related to functional medicine.

Are your consults online or do I have to come to you?

All of the consults are virtual. If you are local to Champaign, IL or are willing to make the drive and would prefer an in-person consultation, I am happy to accommodate!

Can you order lab tests? 

I am not yet a licensed MD, but I can order most functional lab tests through direct-to-consumer testing companies. You can also have some of them ordered by any general physician if you’d like to try to get them covered by insurance.

Where do I get my supplements?

I do not currently have a supplement store. Instead, I provide a list of preferred brands to my clients and several places where they can purchase them. I have no affiliation with any supplement or test companies.

How much should I expect this to cost?

The cost will vary depending on your condition and treatment plan. My basic support package, which includes a 90-minute initial health consult, personalized recommendations, unlimited lab test interpretation, five 45-minute follow-up visits, and unlimited email support, is $550. Any supplements and lab tests will be in addition to this. I also offer a pay-by-the-hour option as well.

Is any of it covered by insurance?

Unfortunately, our current healthcare system does not value preventive medicine. Some lab tests may be able to be justified as diagnostic by a physician and therefore partly covered by insurance. Whenever possible, I will work with you to find these options. If cost is an issue, we can also talk about how to alter your testing and treatment protocol accordingly to just focus on the essentials. If you are a low-income family, please contact me to find out if you qualify for my assistance program.
