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

I’m a functional medicine registered dietitian 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 root cause treatment 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

My credentials:

• Bachelor's Degree in Food, Nutrition and Dietetics with a minor in combined sciences
• Master’s Degree in Nutritional Sciences; Integrative Nutrition
• Registered Dietitian Nutritionist through the Commission on Dietetic Registration
