Andrea came to Boise in 2018 by way of Cheyenne, Wyoming where she worked as a clinical dietitian in the local hospital. As she counseled patients in the clinical setting it became clear that the impact was not long term as many hospital-bound patients are mainly focused on the “quick fix” vs long-term lifestyle changes for optimal health. After moving to Boise, she has been pursuing her passion in private practice dietetics. Her passions include celiac disease, IBS, SIBO, Crohn’s, Colitis and other subsets of IBD, gastroparesis, NAFLD, food allergies and sensitivities, women’s health/hormone health, weight management, T2DM, heart disease, and sports nutrition. Andrea enjoys solving complex digestive issues using a client-centered approach. She is both personable and practical when providing treatments and interventions for optimal health and wellness for her patients.
In 2019, Andrea was trained and certified in the FODMAP diet for Irritable Bowel Syndrome by Monash University. Andrea is the first dietitian to have this certification in the state of Idaho. Additionally, she is certified as a personal trainer and Certified Sports Specific Trainer by the American Council of Exercise allowing for a unique wholistic approach to nutrition and overall health and well-being.
