Integrative and Functional Nutrition Academy Certification mentor leader, Deb Phillips Deb Phillips, MS, LDN, IFNCP

Deb Phillips, MS, LDN, IFNCP brings 40 years of nutrition experience with a focus on community health. She spent the early part of her career in pediatric nutrition and worked as a nutritionist in Early Intervention for many years. In her private practice she has brought a functional perspective to her work with families and children to address emerging health issues.
She runs an insurance-based nutrition practice, serving an economically and demographically diverse population. Her belief is that what she has learned in her functional nutrition training as well as her experience at a functional medicine practice should be accessible to everyone and has worked to find ways to make this possible.

Her strength is creating an environment in which people can be partners in solving their health problems. She gives people information and tools to become the drivers of their journey and supports them in using these resources to make informed decisions. While not underestimating the value of clinical knowledge, she has come to understand that change comes from a heightened sense of self and uses the tools of self-care and mindfulness to support people in creating lasting change in their health practices and their well-being.
