"The living body is intelligent beyond our understanding; it is incomprehensibly intelligent."
- Harvey Diamond
Hi! I’m Laura, a mom of 2 girls currently living in North Jersey. I love helping women feel their best and focus on cardiometabolic health, disease prevention and weight management with a functional nutrition approach.I completed a Master in Clinical Nutrition and Master of Social Work, as well as the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
Through my holistic health training, I became to understand and appreciate the concept of
bio-individuality. What works for one person will not necessarily work for the next. I learned what I need to eat to have more energy, eliminate the bloating and mental fogginess, and feel my best. In the last ten years, I have worked with hundreds of women through 1:1 coaching or small groups and would love to hear your story and see if coaching might be a good fit for you to move forward in whatever area you feel stuck.
We'll look at your genetics, family history, recent lab values, as well as nutrient intake and put together a plan specific to you and your goals.
I don't have a 'label' for the way I eat or coach others to eat- I believe in loading up on nutrient dense foods but also making room for the fun foods. It's about determining a balanced, healthy way of eating that you can happily do for life.
Healthy should be a fun, delicious lifestyle, not a diet.
I also love to run and specialize in working with runners and endurance athletes, to fuel their bodies to perform and feel their best. I am also an RRCA certified running coach and work with athletes to improve their fitness and reach race goals.
Life can get crazy, but creating healthier habits is always doable and so incredibly worthwhile.
