Andrea is a Functional Medicine Nutritionist, Educator and Speaker pioneering the movement to transform healthcare into a system that WORKS. She knows that a functional nutrition approach is the answer to our healthcare crisis, both for individuals and for society at large.

Functional Nutrition serves the needs of the individual. It recognizes each person’s unique capabilities for making the diet and lifestyle modifications that foster the physiological and psychological shifts that enable their body to cultivate its ultimate healing potential. Functional Nutrition does not exist in isolation of other health or medical support, but in tandem with it. That’s because Functional Nutrition recognizes the role of the patient in their own health care. The Functional Nutrition Counselor is the guide to help determine the best and most fitting modes of patient centered self-care.

She created Functional Nutrition Lab to teach practitioners from every scope of practice the Functional tools, systems, and mindset shifts that have been instrumental in my her successes as a clinician.
