After witnessing how the power of food allowed her father to discontinue multiple medications, Kayleigh became infatuated with uncovering and treating the root cause, rather than just covering symptoms. As a functional nutritionist, she is thrilled to share her passion for whole food and is dedicated to simplifying the process of eating well.
Kayleigh came to the field of nutrition by way of political science and social justice. She has lived, worked, and volunteered abroad extensively, spending time harvesting olives in Portugal, working in youth HIV/AIDS prevention in Uganda, and teaching special needs children in India.
All of these experiences culminated in one closer to home when Kayleigh’s father was diagnosed with diabetes. After seeing inadequacies in her father’s care, Kayleigh developed a food plan that allowed her father to discontinue multiple prescription medications. Kayleigh was hooked and promptly left her career in marketing to return to school for clinical nutrition.
Kayleigh believes healthcare that is focused on prevention and root cause resolution is a fundamental human right and believes functional medicine is the future of healthcare. She is passionate about understanding her clients as a whole person, educating them about what is going on inside of their bodies, and empowering them to take back control of their health with nourishing food.
Kayleigh holds a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition and Integrative Health from Maryland University of Integrative Health and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, Cum Laude, from Saint Michael’s College.
