Welcome! My name is Olivia Wagner and I am functionally focused and Integrative Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Health Coach, Certified LEAP Therapist, and Personal Trainer living in the Windy City of Chicago. To me, not much can top a sunny day with a view, a squeeze with my golden retriever, Sugar, a workout class with a friend, and getting lost in the meditation of cooking something amazing in the kitchen.

 

I study the science of food and how it interacts with every cell in your body. I call myself a nutrient seeker and encourage my patients to be so as well.  I speak to body positivity, reframing the word diet, and finding empowerment around food choice.

 

I am a foodie to the core and I love helping others find excitement in nourishing their bodies through food as medicine.   My goal is to help you to understand the needs of your specific body, establish trust with food, and learn to live a life that is truly nourishing to you.

 

I am so happy you are here and I can’t wait to be a part of your journey!
