Hi, I’m Lauren, but you can call me “Lo.” 

I’m a registered dietitian nutritionist passionate about helping you reclaim your health so that you can feel optimal- inside and out.

I am a firm believer that the food we eat and the way our body functions can truly change our life. I’ve seen it firsthand in my own life and in helping thousands of patients.

My philosophy is built on 5 things:

1. Get to the root cause
2. Use real, nourishing food
3. Base recommendations on preciseness and optimal, not “average”
4. Treat you as a whole person
5. Contribute to improving your quality of life
