Meet Kelley

Certified Integrative Nutritionist

My Story

Our state of health is determined by all the daily choices that we make and those choice directly affect the quality of our lives.

Our bodies are designed to heal and thrive when given real nutrition. I know because eating a plant-based diet and fixing my gut health changed my life. I eat better and enjoy food more now than I ever have. I’ve just learned how to eat. My goal is to show you how.

I came to health through a need to learn how to self-heal. My poor eating habits and generally poor health lead me a critical point of change. Guided by world thought leaders, I pursued a career and a passion that would in fact heal me. Today, as an Integrative Nutritionist, Drug-less Practitioner and Natural Health Professional, I help other people to realize their potential for wellness.

My principles for wellness are based around quality, nutritionally dense foods and herbs, eliminating toxins and building killer gut health. I also believe in holistic balance of mind, body and spirit. Topics of self-care and mindset are cornerstones.

Some of my experiences include:

  • Appearing in “Kelley in the Kitchen” for News Channel ABC21, sponsored by Fresh Thyme for about 18 months. This was a 4-minute episode where I taught how to make one healthy dish each week.
  • I’ve done many presentations on wellness for local businesses, associations, churches and webinars.
  • Held many cooking classes with as many as 16 participants held in a commercial kitchen.
  • Coached groups from 1 night to 16 weeks.
  • Built beneficial relationships with local farmers to connect people to the highest quality foods available.

About me

Certified Integrative Nutritionist

As an Integrative Nutritionist, Kelley enthusiastically supports her clients in the pursuit of their greatest asset: optimal health. She guides them to eat whole foods, cook simply, and engage in regular self-care. Her services include hands on cooking classes, personalized coaching programs, meal planning and informative speaking events.

Her cooking classes feature fresh food, herbs and spices primarily sourced by local farmers. Her coaching program draws on her knowledge and experience in creating a personal “roadmap” to health designed specifically for the unique body, lifestyle, and goals of her clientele.


While working in the corporate world, and struggling with her own health, Kelley noticed that when she took time to eat healthy, exercise, and take breaks during the day, she felt more focused and performed better at work and life.

As her wellness picture evolved from tired, overweight and stressed to an abundance of energy and a newfound clarity, her passion also exploded! Watching those around her struggle to make it through the day inspired Kelley to leave the corporate world and invest in bettering the lives of busy people through nutrition and wellness counseling.

My Approach

Kelley implements simple, practices that influence physical conditions and overall well-being. She specializes in using “Food as Medicine” to address healthy weight loss, stress reduction, and hormonal balance.

My Education

Kelley received her training at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City, The National Association of Certified Natural Health Professionals and the America Association of Drugless Practitioners.

"Kelley, your four day clean eating challenge was the best! It was easy and non-intimidating. And because it was just four days, I was really motivated to do it. What I didn’t expect was the lasting habits made from eating four days of very easily digestible food. My palette was happy, I didn’t feel deprived and I felt good after each meal. Full, but not “sorry I ate that!” What a great, concise plan to kickstart a healthier way to fuel the body. Everyone should do this!!!

From my heart,"


"Kelley has been wonderful to work with. Easterseals Arc started a Nutrition project with Kelley at the beginning of 2018 and Kelley has not disappointed. She is engaging and meets individuals where they are in terms of their nutritional needs. Our individuals and employees have loved her cooking classes and have learned a lot."

“I got on the scale this morning and I lost 6 lbs this past week on your program! This is not my norm. Maybe I’ll just keep eating the same things...But seriously! Kelley, you need a weekly program because this was amazing and I’ hooked. I feel great and I didn’t even have coffee today, or all week!”
