Marie Funk, MS, RD, LDN

Marie's interest in the human body, and subsequent career path in Dietetics, grew from injuries sustained while participating in highschool athletics. She began her profession as a clinical outpatient Dietitian in Southern IL, overseeing 5 healthcare clinics. She personally connected with people, helping them to gain a healthy relationship with food and exercise. She believes knowledge is power, which drove her to design and instruct patient, employee, and community-wide programs, ranging from grocery store tours to strength training sessions and weight loss. During this time, she also competed in 5 bodybuilding shows, turning Pro Bikini in 2017 and placing top 10 at the world championships. Her philosophy is that a challenge in life can be embraced as an opportunity. Having the willingness to learn and accept change can be a powerful tool. She works with you to discover a flexible approach to your personalized nutrition and movement habits that you truly enjoy.
