Welcome to Thrive! I'm Jen. I am a Functional Medicine Specialist, Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, seven-year Professional Fútbolista and Princeton University graduate.
I support men, women and student athletes in getting happier and healthier by changing what they put in their mouths and minds. I do this by taking a functional medicine, holistic, big picture, root cause resolution approach to health.
I am not about bandaids or lifelong medication. I am all about root cause resolution in order to rebalance you for good. Type 2 diabetes, acid reflux, weight gain, bloating, anxiety, depression, joint pain, limiting beliefs, acne, cardiovascular disease, brain fog, low mood, poor sleep, low libido, imbalanced thyroid, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, high triglycerides, diarrhea, constipation, low self esteem... These are all symptoms of the body being out of balance. I like to view symptoms as blessings. The sooner we listen, the easier it is for us to rebalance and regain our energy, vitality and health.
The reality is that 'being healthy' can feel overwhelming. There's so much information out there and everyone has an opinion. It's hard to know what's really right for YOU. The truth is that we're all unique and what works for me may be harmful for you. By teaming up with your doctor to promote coordinated care (optional but encouraged), I simplify the rebalancing process and act as the catalyst to get you back to thriving + fully enjoying your two most precious commodities: time and energy.
As your personal functional medicine specialist and holistic health coach, I'll be your ally in your journey toward your healthiest and happiest self. My programs are for highly driven individuals who are looking to create a healthier, more empowering future... A future where YOU are in the driver's seat of your health and life outcomes.
So why would you or anyone you know want to invest your time, energy and money into working with me? Click here to learn about my qualifications and how I got here. Also, in the current healthcare model, doctors don't have the time to support you on a daily basis beyond your occasional appointments. But I do. By partnering up with you and your doctor (optional but encouraged) I help my clients to achieve improved health outcomes, and you'll have my personal phone number every step of the way.
In addition to health consulting, I also developed a mentorship program that's specifically designed for student athletes (13+ years old). I work with driven, thoughtful young people who are looking to take their game to the next level: on the field, in the classroom and in life. This is some of the most rewarding work that I do! I empower my student athletes with all of the tools that I have learned along the way. I am passionate about supporting our youth in leading conscious, deliberate and thriving lives based on the values of integrity, hard + smart work and self reflection.
