(accepting new clients)
Jennifer is a leading expert in the field of nutrition and functional wellness and holds both board and state certifications in nutrition. She earned her Doctorate in Clinical Nutrition from Maryland University of Integrative Health, her Masters in Human Nutrition and Functional Medicine, and her Bachelors in Psychology. Jennifer’s dissertation on PCOS was sought after by other nutrition and healthcare professionals for its cutting-edge treatment style and thorough research.
Using a functional nutrition approach, Jennifer will help you reach your goals and sustain them by a creating realistic wellness plan. She gets to the root cause rather than chasing symptoms, to develop a personalized plan based on your labs, lifestyle, symptoms, and goals. Jennifer will listen to your story through a series of questions and review your labs to understand the whole you, so you’re not chasing symptoms long-term. Jennifer is your coach to help dig deeper and to understand your health, empower you to live symptom-free and radically change your life to experience your most authentic life.
Jennifer knows the struggle of a health condition taking over your life. Diagnosed with PCOS and overweight, Jennifer was determined to find a way to alleviate her symptoms, have a family, and have energy to support her passions…and that’s what she did. She decided to lose weight through a balanced approach, put herself first, and learned how to work with her diagnoses instead of rebelling against them. With a lot of hard work, nutrition, and exercise, she lost 105 pounds and became pregnant! She realized that her purpose was to help people thrive, find their health, and find their voice.
Her experience with food as medicine led to a career in Nutrition. For the past 10 years, Jennifer has been helping to transform her client’s lives and inspires her clients by example, teaching them that their body will heal when given the right environment.
She incorporates a sophisticated Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis in her practice, to track your progress by measuring fat, muscle, water absorption and retention, nutrient absorption and cellular health.
Jennifer is also trained in traditional HeartMath certification and the Trauma-Sensitive HeartMath certification, to help you uncover emotional-cognitive blocks that may be keeping you from achieving your optimal health while empowering you with the tools to overcome those blocks.

I knew I had Dr. Champion to back me up! Making changes to the way I eat wasn’t easy, but I knew I had Jennifer to back me up and check in on me when I needed help!
