Ingrid is a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) trained by the Nutritional Therapy Association; a Certified Gut and Psychology/Physiology Syndrome (GAPS™) Practitioner trained by its founder, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride; a Certified Holistic Health Counselor (CHHC) who received her training from Teachers College Columbia University and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and is currently obtaining her BioIndividual Nutritionist certification. She is a member of the American Association of Drugless Practitioners (AADP), the National Association of Nutritional Professionals, the Nutritional Therapy Association (NTA) and the Weston A. Price Foundation.

Ingrid works with families with various health concerns with a focus on correcting digestive issues; learning, mood and behavior issues; and women’s health including thyroid, adrenal and other endocrine challenges.

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, after several years 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 launched Full Life Nutrition LLC and initially coached women in fast-paced, stressful careers to find health and balance.

After years struggling with her own frightening and perplexing health issues and working with many conventional and alternative health care practitioners (while seeing little improvement), she took matters into her own hands and began some detective work. To delve deeper, she studied many things including, Nutritional Therapy, Gut and Psychology/Physiology Syndrome, BioIndividual Nutrition and even homeopathy, energy medicine and EMFs (three areas she once considered woo-woo, fake and inconceivable). All these approaches and modalities finally brought answers and numerous “Aha” moments leading to her steady and incredible health improvement. With this also came a new sense of purpose to help others who couldn’t find answers to their “why did this happen?” and “how can I finally get better?” questions.

Ingrid began also working with parents to help their children after seeing so many  experiencing frustration with health, anxiety, learning, mood, attention and behavior challenges.  These parents were at a loss as to how to help their children especially when conventional approaches failed.  This was motivation to help empower parents to take control of their own family’s health and guide them through the process.

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.
