Change your nutrition.

Change your life.

My Life’s Work

Living a life free from disease is about aligning your actions with your health goals.  My goal is to help shed light on the space between these so that you can move towards your optimal health. Using tools from my training in functional nutrition, I provides an evidence-based approach to care that allows time for a complete medical history, lab work, and lifestyle adjustments in order to optimize your health. I partner with my patients to allow for the type of personalized, integrative care that is necessary to find balance within the realm of chronic disease.

 

Different Ways to Work with Julie

I work with people in several ways: 1:1 nutrition and health coaching, online group courses, group speaking engagements and classes, and student mentorship for the CBNS credentialing.

Insurance coverage

As a licensed nutritionist I can provide Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) procedure codes for you to submit to your insurance company that accompany any diagnosis codes that you have received from a medical doctor. I do not work directly with insurance companies but I have many patients that report good reimbursement of my fees. The best approach is to consult with your insurance company to know your specific coverage for MNT.

Patients report being able to use Health Savings Account funds to pay for visits with me!

About Julie

I offer functional nutrition counseling that is rooted in a simple and compelling belief: the human body has powerful healing capacities that, when supported, can bring a person to their optimal state of health.

My journey with health began at Cornell University, where I studied Resource Economics. Yes, I wanted to understand the drivers of people’s actions and choices, many of which seemed to be in conflict with their personal well-being—and that of the planet’s. My interest in health extended to the role of food as medicine during my first pregnancy and then with my first child. My colicky newborn graphically illustrated the concept that what you eat can make a huge difference in how you feel and what your body can tolerate. With each new family member the message became more clear: food matters! After serving as my family’s nutritionist for over a decade, I decided to combine my passion for food, gift for healing and desire to help others through my work in the field of integrative nutrition.

I hold a B.S. in Resource Economics from Cornell University and a Masters of Science in Integrative Health and Nutrition from Maryland University of Integrative Health. I am a Licensed Dietician Nutritionist (LDN) in Maryland, a Licensed Nutritionist (LN) in D.C., and a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS).

I am a Recode certified practitioner and a certified teacher with the Alzheimer’s Research and Prevention Foundation.
