Her decade of experience in healthcare and education includes advanced practice at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, where she most recently practiced within the Center for Functional Medicine as well as teaching at CWRU Medical and Dental Schools.

The ideal diet for each person will take into account and address all of these factors for a personalized and realistic nutrition strategy.
Lindsay’s guiding philosophy for personal wellness is – good health is a lifelong journey, not a destination.
