Judy is a pediatric nutrition specialist. She is a licensed registered dietitian with graduate and undergraduate degrees in nutrition and public health from the University of Vermont and University of Hawai’i. Her passion for all things nutrition began early and carried through her many years as a Division I soccer player at collegiate and national levels. Judy completed her graduate work and dietetic rotations across sites in Honolulu and Boston, and later created a television program on the unique foods and culinary herbs thriving in Oahu’s community food gardens. She went on to work in outpatient care for Kaiser Foundation Hospital, as a nutrition educator for a large health insurer, and as a grant write for a non-profit comprehensive care clinic.

Though she completed her degrees and RD in 1989, her real calling emerged with the birth of her son in 1996, who experienced deep challenges from birth for feeding, growth, allergy, and more. With little guidance to be had from her pediatric providers, Judy dug into her infant nutrition training and expanded it, to help her son and other children enjoy their full wellness potential through integrative nutrition.

Judy became a pioneer among dietitians in using functional nutrition for babies and kids. She authored the first accredited module for dietitians on nutrition and autism in 2008, has lectured widely for national associations serving families with autism, and has authored four books on using nutrition to help special needs kids thrive. Her client families include those challenged by autism, ADHD, asthma, allergies, feeding and growth concerns, behavior/mood/learning concerns, constipation, and other gastrointestinal symptoms. For families who are ready for a whole food, whole body, functional nutrition approach, Judy is an indispensable asset to pediatric care, for children ages 0-18 years.

  • While 33 years old and with 3 young children at home, I suddenly became extremely ill and was bed ridden.  I was treated by over a dozen specialists and no one could figure out what was wrong.  I was even referred to the Mayo Clinic, where after a week of testing I was advised to accept that I would always be chronically ill and told that if I wanted to try to leave the house I would be in a wheelchair. I remained in this state of unrelenting sickness for over two years.  Thank goodness for Dr. Jill! After finding her blogs online, I was able to see her in person where she looked me in the eye and said reassuringly “I will figure this out.  That is what I do. I won’t give up until we find something that will help you start feeling better.”  And she did and more! She found the cause of my illness, treated me for it, and now I am back to full health! I will forever be grateful for Dr. Jill and the life that I have back now thanks to her!  I highly recommend Dr. Jill.  She is the most intelligent doctor I have ever met and is truly gifted in diagnosing and treating patients with complex medical issues.

  • Although I know my daughter has shared her news, I must send my own praise for all that you have done. I wish I had a picture of the GI Physician’s face when he came out to talk to me after the colonoscopy. Quote: “There is nothing there!” He was amazed that she had no signs of Crohn’s… the biopsies came back negative!!” We are so grateful to you and your staff for being there for her. Your patients and the love that came across for her healing was always felt and I’m especially grateful to you for accepting her into your practice.

  • Dr. Jill has changed simply changed my life. I feel better than I have felt in years. I have more energy, more joy, and I can’t believe how fast I improved. In one day, I started noticing results and 3 months later, the improvement continues. For a decade, I had to give up more and more activities that I loved, due to inflammation and pain. I am now pain free, headache free and loving my new body and enjoying the activities that bring me joy. I can’t say that the changes I made were easy, but they are worth it. I am looking forward to the possibilities of my future. Thank you Dr. Jill for your intuitive wisdom, experience, and for giving me my life back!

  • Jill C’s lectures in the Good Gut were some of the best I have heard in A4m. Full of clinical pearls, she knows her stuff. I highly recommend we see more of her at A4M/MMI.

  • I wanted to say THANK YOU!!!! When I woke up this morning I hit the lowest I have weighed since I was in High School and my waist size is actually smaller. Not to mention, I feel like a totally different person. My goals and outlook on life have totally changed because of you and your expert analysis, guidance and most of all SUPPORT.

    I will never forget sitting in your office and hearing you say “When we take care of the this bacteria over growth you will start loosing weight” and thinking it couldn’t be that easy… but it was. With proper diet, the right supplements and medicine it’s made a greater change in my life then you will every know. I tell everyone I see about… how spectacular you have been. As I stated above you have changed my life and all in less than 6 months!!!!
