meet your coaches:
I am a Certified Functional Nutrition Counselor, Holistic Health Coach, Exercise Physiologist, and Owner of Keep Your Plants On, LLC. I graduated from Liberty University, Precision Nutrition, the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, and the Functional Nutrition Alliance where I learned to look at root causes of imbalance, rather than symptom suppression. I teach clients how to use food as medicine, movement, and habits to restore energy, balance hormones, banish bloating, gut dysbiosis, and clear skin, sustainably. I studied with the world's top health and wellness experts including:
Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition
Walter Willett, MD, DrPH, chair of nutrition at Harvard University
Andrew Weil, MD, director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine
Gabrielle Bernstein, bestselling author and life coach

David Wolfe, raw food leader and nutrition expert
Marion Nestle, PhD, MPH, professor at New York University’s Department of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health
Mark Bittman, food writer for The New York Times and bestselling author
Joel Fuhrman, MD, family physician and leading expert on nutritional healing
I believe that food is medicine, that it can drastically change your life.
When it comes to your physical health, I specialize in:
Gut Health and Digestion
The Psychology of Eating
My goal is to show you what optimal feels like, so you will never settle for "normal" again.
I am an Integrative & Functional Nutritionist, Postural Alignment Therapist and yoga teacher. I recently obtained my MS in Integrative & Functional Nutrition from Saybrook University, where I studied with some of the country’s leading holistic health experts.
Aside from functional nutrition, I am passionate about the mind-body connection and have strudied course work around hypnosis, biofeedback, and the gut-brain connection. I am a lifelong learner and am now embarking on my NBHWC Holistic Health Coaching certification to be able to best serve my clients.
I have been working 1:1 with clients through my own wellness business, Root & Thrive, which is based around the foundation of leading you back to your roots in order to create the most thriving, abundant life you desire. My goal is to show you that everything you need is already within you, and to help you tap into the innate wisdom that is your body. I’m excited to work with you!
I have been working with Lindsay for about 5 months now and I have loved every second of it! She has encouraged me throughout my entire journey and has helped me develop a better understanding of what I am fueling my body with. Not only have I seen results in my physical appearance but I have also built a positive relationship with food and can say I love living a healthy lifestyle. Without Lindsay's continual encouragement through texts, phone calls, meetings and emails I genuinely do not think I would be as successful. I am so thankful for all she has taught and continues to teach me about my health and wellness!
Lindsay helped me with my extra honeymoon weight a couple years ago. She certainly left an impression on me, because she was the first person I thought of to help me get the baby weight off over this past year. I knew she was the only one that could help me meet my goals because she is absolutely everything I needed: Accountability partner, nutritionist, knowledgeable trainer, good at targeting problem areas, FRIEND. Lindsay takes the trainer/client relationship and turns it on her head. She takes you under her wing, learns as much as she can about you, genuinely cares about your life outside of the gym, and walks with you through it all. She loves with her entire being, and puts 150% of her heart in soul in to helping her clients meet their goals. She doesn’t care what the number on the scale is when you walk through that door. She cares about your mind and your heart, and what will make you the healthiest you can be. Her knowledge of nutrition is outstanding-I’ve never met anyone in my life as passionate about what we put in our bodies as her! In less than a year, I have lost well more than the baby weight, and I’m still going only because of the impact Lindsay has had on my life. Because of her, my entire life is changed. She inspired me to start exercising every single day, and making sure that what I eat will only benefit me. No matter who you are or where you are in your fitness journey, this girl will change your life for the better!!
What Clients Are Saying
I had struggled with an extra 15 pounds for the last 10 years. I had incorporated exercise into my routine, but wasn’t able to make the complete transition to a healthy lifestyle. Then I met Lindsay. She was not only packed full of knowledge about nutrition, but Lindsay was willing to met me exactly where I was. At our first meeting, Lindsay got to know me-my likes and dislikes, my routines, my history-everything that went into making me the person I am. Lindsay and I came up with realistic goals for the upcoming month. I logged my food and exercise in everyday. Lindsay not only checked my log, keeping me accountable, but gave me feedback, encouragement, and even recipes to try! Lindsay changed the way I think about food. For the first time in my life, I am eating healthy delicious food and the weight has finally come off!
I have worked with Lindsay for three months. My goals were wide open and included only to "lose inches" and to learn a healthier lifestyle of eating. Lindsay was patient and encouraging throughout the process. She encouraged me to make small changes and to put in the hard time upfront, understanding why I was doing what I was doing correctly and changes I could make to do better. My body completely transformed. I lost 15 pounds, 2 pant sizes, several inches from target areas, and almost 3% body fat. I am thrilled with my physical results but I am equally encouraged with my emotional and mental changes as well. I don't view food as bad or good but instead as fuel for my body that I have learned to enjoy. With Lindsay's ever constant support and expertise, I leave her knowing I am much better version of myself than when I started-for me and my young, growing family.
