Hi, I’m Kate.

I’m a Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner and National Board Certified Functional Medicine & Health Coach… but I also call myself a Health Detective.  

You may not associate wellness with creativity, but innovation and ingenuity are vital aspects of the healing process, from root cause discovery to optimal health.

The road to good health isn’t always as straightforward as we’d like it to be — sometimes, it can be downright confusing. Many of my clients have seen numerous doctors and specialists about their symptoms, only to hear the same thing over and over: “Your labs are fine, there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong with you.”

While many healthcare practitioners will see this as a conclusion, I see it as a starting point. I am passionate about digging deeper to find the root causes behind my clients’ health issues, and pride myself on never giving up. I’m here to listen, learn, and understand where you are in your health journey — and then help you get to where you want to be.

Once I understand your health story, my next goal is to uncover the cause of your symptoms.  Where standard labs and symptom-based diagnosis fail, my comprehensive assessments and functional health testing will allow us to get a clear picture of what is going on inside of your body and why. Then we will customize your plan of action for improving your health and wellbeing. 


My passion for holistic health comes naturally.


 I was raised in the world of holistic wellness by a father who worked as a Doctor of Chiropractic. While my professional career has included the world of finance and entrepreneurship, holistic wellness has always played a big role in my life, and it was only a matter of time before I returned to my roots.  As a younger adult, I practiced as a financial advisor in California before moving to New Jersey to raise my family. Although I decided to take some time off after the birth of my first baby, I found that I had trouble staying still — I like to say that I “stayed home for about 20 minutes” before enrolling in my first of many integrative health practitioner certification programs. 

By the second week of classes I was completely hooked, and I’ve continued to pursue certifications and trainings in order to deepen my understanding of our bodies and health. I tell my clients that I dove into business ownership by accident, after a stint offering health coaching through a chiropractic clinic grew into my own thriving private practice. In 2011, I founded Integrative Wellness Advisors, which provided holistic wellness services to doctors’ offices, business owners, and individuals. 

Functional labs provide the spark to light the fire inside.


My years of coaching gave me a deep appreciation for the tremendous and transformative impact that functional labs have on my clients’ healing journeys. Seeing how their labs “lit a fire” in them, fueled their motivation to make huge changes in their lives, and created an enormous positive impact on their ability to get healthy (and stay that way!), I made a conscious decision to further my education and become certified in Functional Medicine.  

Now, I offer Functional Medicine and holistic nutrition coaching virtually, allowing me to help more people uncover the root causes of their health challenges, take back control of their health, and feel empowered to live as the best versions of themselves. I am inspired by my clients’ determination to optimize their health — and I love to see them experience their amazing results!

I work with humans of all ages and through every stage of life.

I’ve personally been through weight loss challenges, hormone imbalances, pregnancies, surgeries and some extremely stressful times, such as a tough divorce. I have a special place in my heart for divorced moms… life’s stressors can throw some big health challenges your way and I am here to support you through it!
I have been raising three kids with the occasional coughs and colds, sports injuries, hormone shifts, digestive issues and teen acne. I especially love working with kids and teens because their bodies heal so quickly! 
My experience is vast and there is not a single health issue that I won’t help you tackle!
