Whitness Nutrition focuses on real-food rooted nutrition with an emphasis on balance, grace & evidence-based facts. Whitness Nutrition delivers personal, one-on-one attention to every patient to develop customized programs based on specific barriers, lifestyle and goals.
Whitness Nutrition incorporates both intuitive eating and functional nutrition in virtual 1:1 sessions with patients. Education always comes first; we cover the basic principles of intuitive eating to move away from labeling foods as "good" and "bad".
- We address nutritional deficiencies and their root cause, by taking a deep dive into “feeling better”.
- We avoid overarching recommendations like “lose weight” and, “be healthy”.
- We create strategic action-based interventions to improve energy, mood, fatigue, insulin resistance and hormonal imbalances.
All guidance is based on a persistent commitment to nutritional knowledge and research; a rapidly growing and improving field. Whitness Nutrition focuses on evidence-based research, backed by board-certified licensure and national accreditation.

A Personal Note
I found my overwhelming passion for nutrition over the last decade through the decade-long journey of my own nutrition struggles; from disordered eating and the female athlete triad, to nutrition deficiencies, a Celiac diagnosis, food allergies, colitis and the constant stress of American’s “Eat this, Not That!” food industry. It became apparent that, through these struggles, I could educate and inspire the lives of others through both experience and now, expertise.
When I'm not at work (which, as a type A, Enneagram 3, that's often), you'll find me sipping on a cold brew with my bible study girls, or on a run with my husband + puppy Jax. My hobbies include empowering the health of my family through delicious cooking, reading in my infrared sauna, serving at Shoreline City church, reading, joyful movement with friends and last-minute travel to my hometown in Washington State.
