Currently, she is pursuing her post-graduate certificate as a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS). Emily has also received training from the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), which is considered the gold standard in Functional Medicine education.
Emily’s own experience with debilitating chronic health issues as a young teenager, coupled with the lack of answers she found conventionally, encouraged her to research and investigate what could be done from a nutrition and lifestyle perspective. Emily’s approach to restoring and optimizing the health of her clients involves understanding the root cause of chronic health conditions, including inflammatory conditions, hormone imbalance, and metabolic and gastrointestinal dysfunction, and addressing it with targeted nutrition therapies.
Emily currently resides in San Antonio, Texas, with her husband and four-year-old son. Her favorite activities include nutrition research, listening to podcasts, hiking, and practicing hot yoga.
