Welcome! I’m Francesca, A Science-based Functional And Integrative Nutritionist And Health Coach With A Passion For Evidence-based Practices.
As a firm believer in the power of research and scientific advancements in nutrition, I strive to empower individuals to make informed dietary choices for optimal health.
With a Master of Science in Integrative Nutrition and a remarkable 4.0 GPA, my academic journey has led me to delve into the captivating realm of nutrition. I’ve explored the intricate connections between food, health, and well-being, and my thesis focused on the influence of maternal diet on gene expression and offspring health outcomes. This research revealed the developmental origins of chronic diseases and emphasized the crucial role of maternal nutrition in shaping future generations’ long-term health.
“When I moved to the United States in 2006, I started eating the standard American diet (the acronym of which is SAD, the irony…) and my health fell apart.”
