About Me



Hi, I’m Kimberly.

My journey to becoming a certified Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (FNTP) has been a winding road. Like many of you, I started having a variety of health issues. Luckily, none of mine were life-threatening or chronic, but I was worried they were going to become that way if I didn’t do something to stop the downward slide I was on.

I was overweight and though I changed my diet and was eating healthier than ever, the weight wouldn’t budge. My TSH thyroid test came back borderline and my doctor wanted to start me on thyroid medication that I would have to take for the rest of my life. I had concerns about diabetes as I lost my mother and my father-in-law to the disease.

I was tired all the time and becoming depressed. My periods were very heavy and now I was losing my hair!

I could continue, but you get the idea.


Nutritionist Kimberly King Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner

I had some success with natural medicine but I still felt like I was slowly losing the battle. And some of the things I tried didn’t seem to help at all.

I finally was able to get answers and solutions from an Nutritional Therapy Practitioner. 

I won’t lie and say getting healthy has been an easy journey. I have had to relearn what healthy food and healthy eating truly is. I have slowly made changes to my diet and made myself a priority and, as a result, my health has improved dramatically.

I have lost weight and I feel great most of the time and have energy all day long. I still have more to work on, but most of my health issues and concerns have cleared up. Currently I am struggling with menopause symptoms, but between myself, my FNTP, and my integrative medical health provider I am making great strides.

In 2017 I decided to make the leap and learn nutritional therapy, a science-based, holistic nutrition program.

I truly believe that food is “medicine” and we can heal ourselves and be strong, healthy, and energetic people.

I also offer nutrition specifically for women and couples trying to get pregnant or who want to prepare for pregnancy or who are struggling with infertility. PCOS is a common hormonal problem for women and I can help with that as well.

My Previous Exploits

Nutritional Therapy is my third career.

My first career was as a microbiologist. I earned my B.S. in microbiology straight out of high school then continued with my Masters while working at a Weight Watchers frozen food factory. There I sampled and tested meals, ingredients, and swabs of equipment for bacterial contamination.

I went on to work at the local Health Department Lab running tests for STDs for the health clinic, for parasites for a refugee relocation center, and for coliforms in well water and swimming pools as well as doing other testing.
My second career as a stay-at-home, homeschooling mother has now wound down. I have two lovely daughters who are adults now and I homeschooled them both.

It was during this time I spent almost ten years as a La Leche League Leader counseling breastfeeding mothers. I have also taught at the local homeschool co-op and volunteered with our local figure skating club.
