About Us

Kristie and Rebecca have been working individually in their respective fields of nutrition and herbal medicine for a combined total of 30 years (credentials below), leading their clients to achieve optimal health through methods that are backed by science and evidenced with real life progress. 

After coming together through a mutual friend in the health and wellness community, Kristie and Rebecca connected for several small projects and realized their different roots in nutrition and herbal medicine grew to be even more powerful together. As their business continued to grow, they realized a consistent theme that people need is ongoing support with coaching and behavior change. That's where Marelda shines, helping people put their tools into action. 

Their mission at Functional Nutrition of Wisconsin is provide their clients with truly personalized nutrition that is effective, sustainable, and scientifically driven.
