IT'S TIME TO OWN YOUR HEALTHI’m on a mission to help women with chronic health challenges, including Breast Implant Illness, find healing on a deep and meaningful level. I began my career as a personal trainer, and that eventually led me to nutrition and functional medicine. Now, as a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner (CFMP), Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P), and Nutrition Consultant (CNC), I get to share my passion for wellness with all of my clients. Expanding my approach to healing was originally inspired by my own personal health journey with Breast Implant Illness. At first, I was my own toughest client. I had to learn the hard way to make the connection between my multiple symptoms, down-regulate the chronic stress response, manage my anxiety, and look at health from multiple angles. Some people find it interesting that I’ve struggled to listen to my own advice in the past. But today, those experiences are what help me guide others on their own wellness path. I welcome the possibilities that staying open brings as we explore all opportunities for healing. Through my own ups and downs, I’ve discovered that true healing looks at every element in our life. In order to get to the underlying cause of any health issue, we have to dig deep, connect the dots, and look at the gut microbiome, optimal nutrition, hormonal balance, brain function, detoxification, emotional health and much more. Focusing on any one component in isolation isn’t the answer. That’s why I incorporate the science-back fields of nutrition, genetics, and medicine just as much as the teachings on mind-body connection and holistic healing. We need to pursue all of these directions to make lifelong changes. The culmination of these approaches is found in my female-based wellness programs - the Welle Method and Breast Implant Illness Healing (BIIH). With these programs, we combine coaching, state-of-the-art lab testing, comprehensive case reviews, and step-by-step action plans. The result is truly personalized support and healing for both your psyche and biochemistry. By addressing the whole self, we work together to lay the foundation for a successful and vibrant health journey.
WHAT CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT WORKING WITH JENNI
"Jenni saved me from the depths of postpartum depression after my second child. My postpartum depression came in the form of intense anxiety. By analyzing my blood work and consulting with me, she was able to figure out what I was lacking, which could all be supplemented naturally and through diet. Jenni did all of this for me after multiple doctors prescribed me to a variety of medications which made my anxiety much worse. After Jenni pulled me out of my dark hole of anxiety (all with natural supplements and diet!), she had a new challenge. I was diagnosed with low grade lymphoma and would undergo 4 weeks of radiation for treatment. Jenni worked with me to switch up my supplements accordingly and got me through another challenging period in my life (I am the mother of a 1 1/2-year-old and a 4-year-old and a wife with a full-time job and a dog to top it all off). Jenni has been a major rock in my life. She checks in frequently and genuinely cares. Jenni is passionate about what she does and she is truly exceptional. The Welle Method helped make my life better when no doctor could. I will seek her guidance for the rest of my healthy life!"
- Holly W., Nantucket, MA
"When I first met Jenni, I was battling with the confusion of skin rashes, thyroid imbalances, anxiety, and more. But mostly frustration from being bounced from doctor to doctor with little or no answers. Basically treating my symptoms but never looking for the root of why they started in the first place. With Jenni, I never felt like just another number in the office, but yet gained a personalized experience for MY needs. If you too are struggling with the bouncing-around battle, or merely just want to find the inner reason of "what is the root problem," Jenni is a MUST see functional medicine expert!"
- Ferris N., Aspen, CO
"I loved working with Jenni. I originally sought her out to help with my GERD and to get off of medication. From the get-go, she was really warm, friendly and fun to work with. We talked about my symptoms and how committed I was to changing my lifestyle. It took a lot of work to get down to the problem, but it was worth the testing, diet changes and supplement protocols to be on the right path. I feel much better now, I’m not taking medication, and we even treated some systemic problems that I hadn’t identified before (like fatigue, indigestion and eczema). I really understand what’s going on with my body and I feel better than I have in years! Thanks Jenni!"
- Missy Q., New York, NY
REDEFINING HEALTH WITH A ROOT-CAUSE, WHOLE SELF APPROACH
The process of discovery, connecting the dots, and resolution takes time. Because it is my mission to help you achieve lasting, long-term results, I created the Welle Method and Breast Implant Illness Healing (BIIH) - my signature 4-month, in-depth, mind-body health restorations program. This is where we dive deep, further evaluate and investigate the underlying causes of your health issues and create individualized, comprehensive healing protocols. Both programs include personalized support, comprehensive case review and analysis, coaching and education, access to state-of-the-art lab testing, a dedicated client portal and mobile app through Practice Better, access to my online supplement dispensary, member discounts with wellness partners, and more.
With both the Welle Method and Breast Implant Illness Healing (BIIH), we will work together to lay the foundation from which a successful health journey can be built. The ten main areas we will focus on include: Support Autonomic Nervous System, Emotional Healing and Improve the Chronic Stress Response, Gut Microbiome Restoration, Functional Lab Testing, Optimize Nutrition & Hydration, Targeted Supplementation, Balance Circadian Rhythms, Healthy Movement, Reduce Toxic Burden & Support Detoxification, and Support Optimal Oral Health. To learn more about either program, how to get started, and answer any questions you may have, book a free, 20-Minute Introductory Consult.
FREE, 20-MINUTE DISCOVERY CONSULT
The free, 20-minute Discovery Consult gives us a chance to get to know each other and begin discussing your health concerns and goals.

It also gives you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have regarding us working together. You will also learn about my two health restoration programs - Breast Implant Illness Healing (BIIH) and the Welle Method and how I work with clients. The goal of this session is for you to feel supported and inspired about the process of restoring your health. The information provided in this session will help, both you and I, make sure we are a good fit moving forward in your healing journey.

HOLISTIC + SCIENTIFIC
I bring together the expertise of science-based research with a holistic philosophy. When you work with me, it’s not about trendy health and nutrition advice. It’s a comprehensive program of researched-based information and detailed lab analysis. My practices are based on my years of experience working and mentoring with leading doctors, experts, and nutritionists. I combine this solid expertise with recommendations customized for you (your bio-individuality), along with support, coaching and accountability.
PREVENTION IS KEY
Integrative wellness is the best way to elevate your health, yet many conventional doctors ignore this. Don’t just wait for disease or illness to happen! Taking the right steps to improve your overall health, boost your immune system and gut microbiome, and address the root cause of disease is the foundation of my practice. You have to treat yourself as an integrated system. Your body, mind and emotions all affect each other, and getting healthier means that you have to address all of them.
Living with intention is my mantra. When authentic intention is mined—and celebrated—anything is possible. What’s more? A domino effect. Mindful, whole living will not only raise your personal vibe, but can, in turn, affect those around you. So embrace your spirit, your sass, and your dedication to nutrition and wellness with intention. It’s a game changer. I am happy and honored that you’re choosing to own your health and letting me join you on your healing journey.
