Ingrid worked for many years in the corporate world. Her role as a Global Director for the world’s largest premium adult beverage company brought her around the world, including two years living in London. Although she loved her corporate role and had worked her way to the top, she wanted to do something more meaningful and decided to make a change. So she left her high-intensity job to go back to school to study nutrition, a topic she’d always found fascinating. She founded Full Life Nutrition LLC and initially coached women in fast-paced, stressful careers to find health and balance.

After several years, Ingrid began working with children following her own daughter’s challenges and frustration with reading and anxiety in second grade. The options available didn’t make sense to Ingrid and she felt there must be another way. Based on her experience in nutrition and alternative health, extensive research and her ability to problem solve she discovered a natural approach that got to the root of the problem. The results were transformative, eliciting comments like “What did you do? She’s like a different child!” No one believing a conventional approach could explain the leaps and bounds of improvements in such a short period of time. Her daughter was now on a positive trajectory with a new level of happiness and confidence about her abilities.

When Ingrid spoke with others about this journey, they opened up and shared their own stories. It was apparent that so many parents have similar experiences that manifest in different ways, be it learning, mood or behavior, but are at a loss for how to help their child. Remembering her own frustration, she was motivated to help empower other parents to take control of their own family’s health and guide them through the process. Ingrid enjoys working equally with adults and children and especially with members of the same families.

Ingrid loves to cook, practice yoga, read, travel, ski, volunteer for causes that are important to her and spend time with her family, friends and pets. She lives in Connecticut with her husband, daughter, 2 dogs and cat.
