Hello, I'm Jennifer!

My goal is to give you tools that you can immediately use to improve your health, support your immune system and look great! 

My company, Food First by Jennifer is based on the philosophy that the body is designed to be self-healing. Meaning that, when given the right food and proper nutrition the body can correct imbalances naturally, often without prescription medication or surgery. Food First by Jennifer guides you toward which foods to choose first, and how to achieve health by making small changes that have a big impact.

 How I got here...

After graduating from Michigan State University, I had a continuum of health issues that compromised my quality of life. When repeated prescriptions didn’t help and ended up doing more harm than good, I searched for natural healing therapies outside traditional western methods. It wasn’t until I took a natural approach that my health dramatically improved.

Today, as a practitioner and speaker, I am inspired by helping people restore and improve their health. I believe health comes from the inside out and, with the correct nutritional information, is attainable by everyone. By taking small steps and making simple changes, people get great results.

It is my desire is to share the knowledge and experience I have with others so everyone may have the opportunity to achieve optimal health. I am committed to teaching and consulting with those who want to  learn how to feel better and live a healthy lifestyle.


In 2013, I completed my Doctorate in Naturopathy. While earning my doctorate, I spent two years working as a nutritional counselor. To date, I have given over 75 health and wellness presentations to businesses and associations around the state of Michigan. I am also trained as a Nutrition Response Test Practitioner, specializing in women's health.
