About Jodie – Certified Health and Nutrition Consultant in Northern Virginia
This is what I do and why I do it:
I am a mom of five beautiful children, a 2 time breast cancer survivor, a runner, an attorney, a musician, personal trainer, and a health coach. All of these things combined make me who I am, an individual. As a mom, I have spent years researching and understanding how food impacts my children. We have several food allergies in our family so I spend a lot of time analyzing ingredients. As a breast cancer survivor, I have spent the past 10 years really delving in to the impact food has on your body, which kinds will benefit each individual, and which can cause harm. As a health and nutrition specialist, it is my goal to help my clients understand these impacts so that they can learn to choose the best nutrition and exercise that will keep their individual body in optimal health.
Just as I am an individual made up of all the above traits and qualities, I value my clients the same. Each person who walks in my door will be viewed and treated bioindividually. Together we will determine your own unique needs that will help you find your best healthy self through individualized nutrition and physical training goals.
I am a certified and trained integrative health and wellness coach through the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and the Institute of Nutritional Leadership, with a specialty in hormone health, inflammation, and leaky gut. I am certified in health and science through Cornell’s nutrition and healthy living program. I am a certified nutrition coach, certified in mental health and the gut as well as anxiety and the gut-brain connection. I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer. I am also a Holistic Certified Cancer Coach. In addition, I have a BA in psychology, a JD in health law with a master’s degree education in health care ethics. Helping others achieve the best health has been a long time passion that I continue to fulfill every day working with clients. Here is a link to a video of some of what I do as a health coach.
