Happy Guts = Happy Tummies = Happy Families

Hi, I'm Kristen! I'm a Registered Dietitian and I help babies and children who have gut issues like reflux, constipation, eczema, and food sensitivities improve their nutrition so they can avoid unnecessary medications.

If you're here, it's probably because you have tried EVERYTHING to 'heal' your kiddo's gut and nothing seems to help - you are feeling out of options, desperate for a solution, depleted, exhausted and frustrated.

Good news! I am the kids' gut health dietitian who helps you discover the root cause of your child's tummy troubles so you can overcome them and manage them early in life without cutting out your favorite foods.

Happy Tummy Nutrition

Hey I'm Kristen!

Pediatric Registered Dietitian & Certified Lactation Counselor

I found my love for pediatric nutrition while working in the community for 6+ years before transitioning to my role as a clinical outpatient dietitian. My passion is all things related to children's gastrointestinal health (AKA Gut Health!)

Many parents need help figuring out the root cause of their child's tummy troubles! Far too many kids are prescribed unwanted and unnecessary medications BEFORE the underlying cause is actually addressed.

That is where my services come in handy. I help parents find the root cause of their child's tummy troubles before coming up with a nutrition or treatment plan. We use a variety of functional lab testing as needed. My mission is to help parents improve their kid's gut health by assessing the root cause, balancing out the gut microbiome, and then care/maintaining a healthy gut for life!
