I’m a Functional Nutritionist who specializes in hormones and digestive health . I love all things health and wellness, I am constantly researching ways to improve my health and the health of my clients.
I love doing this work because I have been there. My journey to health has not been easy, but it has inspired me to become a functional nutritionist. My goal is to identify the root cause of your symptoms. With my training, I have the ability to use functional testing to help you balance your hormones, repair digestive health, gain energy, and heal from the inside out. I’ll help you implement a customized nutrient dense diet, a targeted supplement protocol, and supportive lifestyle changes.
With every client the first thing we focus on is repairing the gut and making sure digestion is optimal. Digestion and gut health are the gateway to all aspects of our health and affect the entire body. From energy, brain fog, and weight to hormones, acne and indigestion. It all begins in the gut. I want to help you achieve regular menstrual cycles, increased energy, pain- free periods, better sleep, better digestion, clear skin, improved fertility and more.
When I am not with clients or whipping up some amazing food, you can find me reading a good book, hitting a workout class, playing tennis or out on the water. I grew up on a lake in Michigan so I love to go home on the weekends in the summer and soak up some sunshine at the lake.
Hi, I'm Courtenay! I'm a passionate mom, distance runner turned weightlifting aficionado, and (absolutely terrible) show-tune singer. I'm also a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Master Restorative Wellness Solutions Practitioner who uses nourishing foods, lifestyle changes, and pinpointed testing to serve people just like you.
My work as a functional nutritionist stems from my own lifelong health struggles. As a child, I had chronic respiratory infections that resulted in countless rounds of antibiotics, school absences, and the limiting belief that I wasn't strong or healthy. These problems escalated into digestive issues throughout college and graduate school, and as an adult, my health continued to decline. I saw so many doctors for allergies, food sensitivities, skin issues, joint pain, brain fog, migraines and more. I was told that my symptoms weren't significant and that I could take various prescriptions for the rest of my life to "manage" my growing list of conditions.
I felt wholly unseen and misunderstood, and I became determined to help myself and other people in my position.
Ultimately, the birth of my amazing kids propelled me to uplevel my learning and training—I had my "why," and I committed to be the healthy, fulfilled person that my kids, my husband, and I, deserve.
My health journey, combined with my years of education and clinical experience, gives me unique insight into what works—and what doesn't—for each bio-individual client I see.
When I'm not in my office or planning our next family adventure, you'll find me out running or at CrossFit with friends, on (or in) the water with my family, or meal prepping like a maniac while rocking out to something from the '80s.
I'm so excited to meet you and work together!
Hi! I’m Morganne and I’m the Client Coordinator! After my own health journey, I’m excited to
be a part of yours!
I first learned about Nutritional Zest after I had been experiencing chronic sinusitis and chronic fatigue, and nothing was working. The team at Nutritional Zest has led me on the road to healing and I wanted to be a part of that for others as well.
In my free time you can find me at the dog park with my Golden Retriever Pippa or out for a run
around town lake!
