After I spent years seeking answers from other practitioners, Dr. Jill uncovered some health issues that no one else had found. With a plan in place, I quickly began feeling better and had more energy. Moreover, I appreciate her incremental and gentle approach to troubleshooting health challenges. In one case, this very likely allowed me to avoid what would have been a very expensive surgery. I’m so grateful for her help!

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 the 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 writing 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.
