“I truly love teaching clients about nutrition and the impact food has on our wellness; I love empowering people to feel their best by making the best choices to fuel their bodies.”

Koren Bradshaw, MS, CDN, CLC, is a nutritionist who specializes in working with new/expecting mothers and women’s health, as well as in autoimmune and thyroid issues, food allergies and sensitivities, celiac disease and anti-aging. Her previous experience includes working as a nutritionist and lactation consultant, as well as starting her own practice.

A previous stint in the corporate office of a well-known quick-serve restaurant chain known for its treats, opened Koren’s eyes to hidden ingredients and just how damaging these commonly consumed treats really are. Around the same time, her oldest child was born with life-threatening food allergies, leading Koren to throw herself into research on how the food we eat impacts our bodies. These events, combined with a lifelong passion for wellness and healthy eating, motivated Koren to change the trajectory of her career path and become a nutritionist in order to help others on their own paths to wellness.

Koren believes everyone has the power to feel and look their best, and much of that power lies in the food we choose to put in our bodies as fuel and the activities we choose to use that fuel for. By educating her clients and simplifying concepts, Koren helps her clients understand which foods work best with their individual biochemistry and lifestyle, as well as how to make diet and lifestyle choices that will help them to feel their best, boost their energy and feel comfortable in their skin without restrictive eating or dieting.

Koren is a mom of two and lives in Fairfield with her husband, kids and pup. She loves to cook and stay active and heads to the beach as often as she can.

      “I pride myself on providing motivation, support and accountability to clients. Because eating is so personal and often requires behavior change, I ensure my clients know that I am there for them every step of the way.”

      Ashley Jerry, MS, is a nutritionist who specializes in a variety of fields, including food sensitivities, medical conditions, and sports nutrition. Her expertise includes gut health issues, weight loss, self-image and an overall understanding of nutrition, as well as treating a diverse range of medical conditions such as high cholesterol, high blood glucose levels, obesity, pregnancy, gastrointestinal function, anxiety, depression, and overall health. Ashley also specializes in sports-specific nutrition guidance, including for sports such as powerlifting, running, bodybuilding, crew, football, and more.

      One of Ashley’s fortes is designing customized nutrition protocols to include meal plans, grocery lists, health tips, and supplement recommendations. Having the ability and knowledge to assess lab results helps Ashley to create a comprehensive eating guide to keep her clients on track and improve overall health.

      Ashley is a strong advocate of having a strong knowledge of nutrition, which makes all the difference in a person’s mental and physical strength. Childhood obesity is something that she is also very passionate about, as educating children on how to take care of their bodies is the start to implementing preventative care long term.

      Ashley provides telehealth services to clients based in Florida and New York, as well as telehealth and onsite services in Connecticut, with the exception of Greenwich. Outside of work, Ashley is very involved in the bodybuilding world, as competing and training is a huge part of her life.
