About this pro

How does your service stand out?

My services are unique because I offer a functional medicine approach. This means we will get to the root cause of your health concerns with the use of nutrition. Further, the difference between my practice and all others is that it uniquely combines healing foods, positive-psychology and mind-body medicine.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I love seeing clients who have had been "stuck" in conventional medicine approaches finally start to heal and get better.

    It was the best way for me to lose the weight I've been trying to lose for years. I'm down 45 pounds. The coaching was great and helped me stay encouraged through some tough spots. If your serious about losing the weight but just have found the tools yet you should definitely consult Miranda and Thrive Nutrition.

    Put a stop to your harmful habits
    Miranda is extremely knowledgeable and passionate. I felt that I not only learned some basic fundamentals about eating and nutrition, but more about why I've developed harmful eating habits and to become more aware of them. She is very encouraging and supportive in helping you identify weekly goals bringing you closer to a healthier version of you.

    Results as a consequence of lifestyle
    Thanks to Miranda I could navigate through a 6-month relocation to Minneapolis (plus constant traveling!) and -at the same time- change my eating habits and -most importantly- my attitude towards food. Miranda's insightful and very professional approach helped me to achieve a healthier stress-reduced lifestyle and, as a consequence, lose weight and feel better :)

    I recommend Thrive Nutrition!!
    Miranda is very professional, kind, and intelligent. At first I was skeptical if the diet plan would work, it was different than anything I had tried before. I followed her plan, she helped make changes as needed to continue my progress. I highly recommend Miranda and Thrive Nutrition to anyone who needs to loose weight, make a lifestyle change, or improve their overall health.

    You cannot go wrong.
    Phenomenal! Miranda is always on time for appointments and in one session I learned more about nutrition than in a lifetime. I'm looking forward to my new lifestyle of good eating habits.

    Thrive Nutrition gave me my health back
    I'm so happy to have finally found Thrive Nutrition! I searched for over a year to find someone in the Minneapolis area who practiced functional medicine and believed in the healing power of real food. All the information on her site aligned perfectly with what I was looking for. Miranda helped identify what I needed to improve through testing. I've made so much progress and plan to continue working with her regularly to ensure I stay in tip-top shape health-wise. A couple of my big wins: I no longer take allergy or asthma medications and eating doesn't make me bloat. I highly recommend you consider Thrive Nutrition if conventional medicine hasn't been able to help you get your health to where it should be. The time she spends with each of her clients is incredible. She cares so much and goes above and beyond to help you achieve your best health. I look forward to a lifetime of wellness after all I've learned from her!

    Gift yourself a lifestyle...
    Miranda is very knowledgeable in the fields of nutrition and life balance. Through her guidance, I was able to shed 12 lbs. of fat in 3 months while being introduced to a healthy lifestyle. Miranda provided advice, helpful summaries of one-on-one visits, physical guidance in selecting healthy food products, and most importantly, encouragement. I will be sure to contact Thrive Nutrition for annual refreshers in order to tap into Miranda's insight on healthy nutrition and lifestyle. LC

    Miranda was helpful on getting certain test kits for me to further investigate steps I need to take on improving more with my health. She is honest, caring, very REAL on her love for nutrition and desire to grow on learning more with hormone imbalances. She's willing, a hard worker and I appreciate her compassion and meeting me.
  • Lindsay S. Mar 20, 2016
    Miranda is an incredibly knowledgable and caring individual. When working with my new diet, I had SO many questions, and Miranda patiently answered each and every one of them. Her Meetup group also offers excellent opportunities to better your health and nutrition. It provided me with opportunities to explore new avenues of relaxing, healing exercise. I would highly recommend Miranda, her services, and her meetup to anyone looking to improve their nutrition or just better their overall health.
  • Sarah F. Mar 17, 2016
    Miranda does a phenomenal job of explaining nutrition - she is able to tell you exactly what certain foods do in your body and is clearly very passionate and knowledgeable when it comes to nutrition. I love getting the Thrive newsletters and I also like that she is very involved in the community in various ways, such as with the Minneapolis Holistic Nutrition MeetUp Group and various presentations/seminars on different nutrition topics. I would highly recommend Miranda/Thrive Nutrition to anyone considering it...
  • Erica G. Mar 17, 2016
    Miranda has a wealth of knowledge on a wide variety of health-related topics. She loves sharing her passion for nutrition with others. She is also always very positive and remains upbeat, which can be contagious! Personally, Miranda taught me how to brew my own Kombucha, and the health benefits it can bring to you! This is a ritual that I have continued for months, and look forward to each new brew that I make, and trial and error in different flavorings. I’d recommend Miranda to anyone who is struggling with specific health or nutrition issues, as she is able to tailor her advice to each individual.
  • Addie L. Mar 16, 2016
    Overall very professional, thoughtful, energetic, and willing to help out. She does a great job listening and providing insight to solve my health problem/questions.

  • Ashlee K. Nov 30, 2015
    Miranda really takes the time to get to know you, your health history, and your goals. She helps you make both big and small changes to your overall health and give you pointers on how to make it a lifelong habit. Most beneficial for me, Miranda helps me think about, and change, my long term health. After working with Miranda I have a better understanding of my health, what I can do to be my healthiest, and how to make this a lifestyle change and not a temporary fad!
  • Demi R. Nov 22, 2015
    Miranda is a great listener. She was able to hear my needs and a dress them right away. She kept it honest, simple and was willing to show me how I can make small changes that would help me improve my diet overtime.

Coaching memberships are your most effective and economical option for optimal long-term results.

Coaching sessions provide accountability, consistency, and ongoing support so that you get long-term results. You choose how you’d like to meet: Skype, phone or in office! Individual sessions are also available.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am licensed nutritionist who has a Master's degree in Human Nutrition. I am passionate about helping people overcome their health obstacles by addressing the root cause of their health issues. In addition, I also provides public seminars on hot nutrition topics and write nutrition content for various health institutions, functional medicine-based websites and supplement industries.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was in a pre-medicine in college because I really wanted to help people be healthy. It wasn't until my senior year in college that I learned that the healthcare system is actually a disease care system. I also learned during that year how food is actually the best medicine. After I graduated, instead of applying to medical schools, I applied to graduate nutrition programs knowing that was exactly what I wanted to do. I haven't looked back since! I worked as a health coach for a few years at a major healthcare company. I worked with clients across the nation focusing on stress management, tobacco cessation, healthier eating, weight loss, lowering blood pressure and blood sugar as well as increasing physical activity. After that, I started my own nutrition practice which is where I am today.
What types of customers have you worked with?
For nutrition, my specialty is fat loss and reversing autoimmune and gut disorders by eating real foods in a strategic way that anyone can follow. My practice is open to anyone who desires to live their healthiest, most fulfilling life by eating delicious foods, exercising smarter, conquering stress, sleeping like a baby, fostering meaningful relationships and advancing their success by finding greater happiness. As you can see, my nutrition coaching also incorporates a lot of discussion around life coaching too.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
You want someone who will help you uncover the root cause of your illness, not just treat the symptoms. Only treating the symptoms will lead to a continued deterioration of health. Key terms professionals use to indicate they treat the root cause are: functional medicine, functional nutrition and integrative medicine/nutrition.
