Allison Berneking M.S., PA-C,
Nutrition Health Coach
Allison received her graduate degree as a Physician Assistant in 2011, but after practicing inpatient for a few years she felt like she was helping few people truly get well. Her journey towards holistic health in her personal life led her to continue her studies through the Institute for Functional Medicine and the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. It was during this time that Allison gained an in-depth understanding of food from a culinary and medicinal perspective as she experimented daily cooking for a friend battling cancer with a strict and clean diet.
Allison strongly believes that our relationship with food is central to our overall health and well-being, and that food is meant to be enjoyed in its purest form alongside those we love. As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach, Allison works with individual clients to establish attainable goals as she supports each client in his/her journey toward optimal health and well-being.
As a mom of a young daughter, Allison also brings her passion for nourishing the whole family into her work. In addition to seeing individual clients, she works with small groups teaching classes for parents learning to feed their infants and small children as she continues to grow this passion for feeding the entire family. Allison is excited to be partnering with The Cook and His Books to bridge culinary excellence with nutritional awareness and the love of real, whole foods.
