Kendy is passionate about helping people recover from digestive dysfunction, fatigue, blood sugar imbalances, and chronic disease. She received her graduate degree in biological sciences from the University of Arizona, trained as a Nutritional Therapist with the Nutritional Therapy Association, and has completed over 100 additional hours of continuing education in the field of functional nutrition.
Kendy established her private practice in Boise over 5 years ago and has helped hundreds of people reach their health goals through both private consultations and group programs. She uses her knowledge of human physiology, nutrient-dense foods, and targeted supplementation, along with the wisdom of her own life’s health journey and a deep compassion for shared experience to help her clients find balance and heal from both chronic and acute illnesses.
Kendy is very knowledgeable, warm and compassionate. I feel armed with the knowledge I need to make great choices in regards to my nutrition moving forward.
Come in with all your nutrition-related questions, and I will assist you in making a plan for improving your relationship with food, sticking with self-made goals, or learning more about specific topics such as healthy fats, where to source foods, how to eat less sugar, or how to cook more healthy meals for your family. I will also guide you toward objective and reliable resources (online and books/articles) where you can further your learning.
If you’re ready for specific guidance from someone with clinical experience in functional nutrition, this package is for you! During the initial meeting together, your health history, symptom profile, 3-day food journal, functional testing results, and a list of current supplements will all be reviewed. This information, in combination with conversation during your first appointment will give Kendy a comprehensive understanding of your nutritional status and the foundational causes of your symptoms.
Once you’ve scheduled your appointment, all functional testing documentation will be sent by the provider for completion. To better serve you during the appointment, all documents must be returned 3 days prior to your appointment.
*You can expect to receive a review of the initial findings from this meeting. You’ll also receive support, education, and suggestions for key diet and lifestyle changes to help you meet your health goals.
Kendy does a fantastic job both individually and in a group setting. She is able to provide a wealth of information, resources and ideas to support a variety of gut health issues. She does all this in a very neutral, kind and supportive way. My family and I are feeling so much better after working with her.
