After graduation, Heidi completed her internship in dietetics at Harborview and The University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle, WA. She had been in practice as a Registered Dietitian (RD) at Providence Saint Patrick Hospital in Missoula, MT since 1999. She now works at Fresenius Health Care helping patients who are battling end-stage kidney disease.
Heidi has been adding functional medicine to her dietary practice since discovering it in 2015. She is working to obtain her functional medicine certificate through The Institute of Functional Medicine. She is excited about blending functional medicine with her conventional nutritional and dietary education to help her clients achieve optimal health and wellness.
Heidi has deep grassroots in Montana. She grew up on a ranch near Valier, MT, and now lives in Missoula with her husband, son, and daughter.
When not treating and educating her clients, Heidi spends her off time outdoors with her family and friends.
With a deep curiosity about health and true wellness, I have always looked beyond conventional medicine to help both myself and my clients. While attending my first functional medicine conference, I realized this was the type of medicine I wanted to practice. It is based on the understanding that healing begins by finding the root cause of suffering for each individual. It is not a quick fix nor a pill, but an all-encompassing way of life that can offer true healing.
In my 30’s, I developed serious hormonal imbalances that were plaguing me, causing chronic pain and significant inflammation. I simply could not accept these illnesses at my young age. Over the years, I found that conventional medicine alone was not addressing the root cause of my ailments. I knew there had to be other healing options that could help me.
I started to incorporate the foundational principles of functional medicine into my world on a daily basis. I was blown away at how quickly my health improved. I was able to heal my skin conditions and hormone imbalances, improve my brain function and digestive system, address my chronic pain and quality of sleep, and in the end, restore my vitality.
With the tools of functional medicine, personal diligence, and hard work, I truly got my life back.
“I am so pleased I took the time to heal myself. Now I am poised to help my clients succeed on their own healing journey.”
