Meet Your Wellness Detective
I’m Ashlin, a certified Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) based in sunny San Diego.
My passion for Holistic Nutrition began after years of working long hours at high stress, demanding, corporate marketing jobs. I’m a type-A, ambitious woman and as I climbed the corporate ladder my endless drive ultimately led me to hit a wall. I experienced mysterious health issues such as fatigue, weight gain, mood disorders, loss of motivation and brain fog that doctors described as a symptom of “getting older.” Refusing to believe this was my new normal, I started investigating how nutrition can help heal and prevent these types of chronic health concerns.
I experienced my first life-changing moment after overcoming an oppressive, toxic work situation immediately following a devastating break up. Feeling lost and beaten down, I took a year off of work, traveled the world and recovered from the trauma. During this time my passion for wellness became magnified and I decided to enroll in the Nutritional Therapy Association program as the first step in changing careers.
As I graduated, I was faced with a tough decision. The outbreak of the pandemic formed an uncertain future, so I delayed taking on a new career path and continued to grind away at my corporate job. The stress, grueling hours and negative work environment started to take a toll on my wellbeing. The endless list of symptoms such as brain fog, extreme fatigue, digestive issues, TMJ, headaches, depression and anxiety became so debilitating I could barely get out of bed let alone perform my job. My immune system had kept several stealth infections at bay (for who knows how long) until I was exposed to toxic mold in my home. The mold was like the straw that broke the camel’s back and with my immune system completely overwhelmed everything bubbled to the surface such as parasitic pathogens, Lyme co-infections (Babesia and Bartonella) and Epstein Barr (EBV).
During my journey I learned that nutrition was just the beginning and that healing requires a holistic approach. I focused on detoxing and methylation pathways, circadian rhythm and grounding, movement, stress management, emotional healing, and removing environmental toxins to provide my body with the energy needed to heal itself. I also came to the realization that my job was not providing purpose in my life and was not aligned with my passions – something which greatly influenced my health decline. I believe I was intended to go through these struggles to push me to pursue my passion of nutrition and wellness by mentoring others through their own personal healing journeys.

1:1 IN-PERSON OR VIRTUAL COACHING
A great starting point if you're looking for dietary and supplementation guidance to get you motivated. We work together for 1 month to create a custom protocol to be followed independently. Best suited for those who require less accountability to stay on track.
During this 3 month transformation we will utilize lab test results, detailed questionnaires, in-depth evaluations and one-on-one sessions to uncover needs and deficiencies causing dysfunction. By evaluating these clues I then create a bio-individual protocol addressing diet, lifestyle and supplementation.
Lab testing can provide additional insights into what is causing stress and imbalance in your body. eliminating these burdens allow the body to heal itself and become more stress resilient.
FOOD SENSITIVITY TEST & GUT BARRIER PANEL
Food sensitivities affect more than 100 million people worldwide. they are very difficult to identify because the symptoms can be delayed up to 72 hours. Food sensitivities cause a wide variety of illnesses ranging from skin rashes and headaches to chronic intestinal diseases.
the kBMO FIT test employs unique methods that detect both igG antibody and immune complexes together. This patented method improves the sensitivity over other tests that only measure the standard igG.
the FIT test measures sensitivities of 176 different foods and additives spanning all major food groups. the test includes a gut barrier panel that detects leaky gut or intestinal permeability through the gatekeeper markers: candida, zonulin, occludin and lipopolysaccharides (LPS).
this is an at-home test that utilizes a simple finger prick to collect a small amount of blood.
HAIR TISSUE MINERAL ANALYSIS (HTMA)
Minerals are essential for countless metabolic functions. HMTA offers insight into mineral imbalances or toxic mineral excesses that may be the underlying cause of your symptoms. This additional piece of the puzzle is used to optimize protocols and restore body energy and chemistry.
Requires practitioner to review results so hTMA is only available with 1:1 coaching
