"I first started working with Kelsey in April 2021, she came highly recommended by several close friends. I was experiencing symptoms of extreme exhaustion, mood swings, cold hands and feet, dry hair and brittle nails, constant energy crashes and below average sleep, which is why I reached out to Kelsey. As a former D1 athlete, I knew my body very well and I knew something was off, even though my primary care doctor kept telling me my lab results were within normal limits.
After completing an extensive phone call with Kelsey, she informed me she believed I had an autoimmune condition, which happens to be extremely under diagnosed in a lot of women.
Before meeting Kelsey I had almost given up trying to figure out the reason for my constant exhaustion, and I was attributing it to the stressors that come with being a firefighter paramedic and shift work with lots of sleepless nights.
I was immediately sent to do a complete blood panel, which confirmed her suspicion of an autoimmune condition called Hashimotos. Kelsey explained the results of my labs in extreme detail, I was placed on an autoimmune protocol diet, and for the next year we had an hour long phone call every 2 weeks where I would tell her how I felt with the changes she implemented.
I started paying more attention to how my body felt, and within a few short weeks I started noticing a big difference. I started sleeping better, I stopped having energy crashes and food cravings, my overall mood improved, and I noticed my body composition was changing due to the fact that we eliminated a lot of inflammatory foods. With a better body image I became a lot happier and more confident, which translated positively into other aspects of my every day life.
Kelsey takes extreme pride in connecting to every client on a personal level and acknowledging all of their concerns. She also shows genuine care and compassion for the problems her clients are experiencing. She became a close friend and mentor in the process. Not only did she fix my issues, but she continuously teaches me things that keep having a positive impact on my life and the lives of people around me.
If I could go back in time, I would get a nutritionist at a younger age and learn to have the relationship with food that I have today. Investing in our health is one of the most important investments we can make. There is no doubt that knowing the things I learned working with Kelsey would have made me a better D1 athlete. I have recommended Kelsey to a lot of my friends and colleagues, and i continue to do so, so she could have a positive impact in their lives as well." - Ana
