She works with clinical laboratories to conduct testing to assess nutritional status, intestinal health, inflammation, digestion and food absorption. The goal is to manage adverse food reactions and help to heal the body from inflammation.
Stephanie strives to help her clients break free from “diet culture” by using an anti-diet plan, which incorporates eating good whole foods and listening to your body. She takes a personalized approach to engage clients in nutrition counseling and mindful and intuitive eating along with meal planning. Personally, Stephanie enjoys living in beautiful Tampa, Florida, with her husband where she enjoys Lagree fitness classes, cooking, traveling, and the pursuit of lifelong learning.
