If you’re a practitioner who is passionate about improving your clients’ lives by incorporating the therapeutic potential of diet and lifestyle interventions, read on!!

I co-created the AIP Certified Coach program with Mickey Trescott, NTP, and Angie Alt, NTC, CHC for providers in the health and wellness sphere who, like you, are passionate about improving your clients’ lives by incorporating the therapeutic potential of diet and lifestyle interventions. Our goal with this program is to give you the comprehensive education and essential resources you need to better serve your autoimmune and chronically ill clients using the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP).

The three of us will be teaching this 8-week program live to a limited group of students starting August 29th, 2022.

The AIP Lecture Series


I am loving this AIP course and all the information I am receiving. The amount of work you have put into this is amazing and greatly, GREATLY, appreciated. Thank you so much. Taking this course gives me the knowledge I need to understand why my body is doing what it is doing and reinforces my determination to continue along this dietary path to heal it. Invaluable!

Change Peoples Lives!

I am so excited to train new coaches to join us on our mission of wellness!

Our goal with this program is to provide a comprehensive education along with essential resources to the coaches, physicians, nurses, nutritionists, dietitians, therapists, acupuncturists, chiropractors and other practitioners that work with clients/patients with autoimmune disease and other chronic illnesses.

Unfortunately, the autoimmune community is expanding rapidly and we need an army of coaches ready to collaborate with both clients and the conventional healthcare system, leading them to health using all the best tools in the box, including diet and lifestyle.

*NEW* Nutrivore Weekly Serving Matrix

An easy-to-use and flexible weekly checklist
to help you maximize nutrient-density.

The Weekly Serving Matrix is very helpful! I’ve been eating along these lines but this really helps me know where to focus vs. which foods serve a more secondary role. It’s super helpful and has taken a lot of worry out of my meal planning. Thanks!


As an AIP Certified Coach, you will be equipped with the knowledge and resources to best serve your clients with chronic illness.  

Plus, you’ll be joining a community of AIP experts, working with their clients within their current scope of practice to effectively mitigate chronic illness around the globe, together creating incredible change in the standard of care for chronic illness.

We hope to see you there! We are so grateful for the chance to teach you everything we’ve learned about the AIP, and to help you change lives. I hope you’ll join us!

BIPOC Scholarships

As the founders of AIP Certified Coach, Mickey, Angie and I are working to take meaningful action to dismantle systems that are preventing all of us from enjoying full health and wellness. One of the ways we can do that is to offer support to BIPOC (Black,  Indigenous, and Person of Color) health and wellness practitioners who would like to more fully serve the autoimmune community, especially fellow BIPOC.

  • What: 5 scholarships will be awarded for the full enrollment price ($799)
  • When: We are accepting applications now, with an August 11th, 2022 deadline
  • How: You can get all the details and apply here

What About Interested People Who Aren’t Healthcare Professionals???

I’ve heard the calls from all of you who are interested in a detailed understanding of all of the inner workings of the AIP but who aren’t licensed healthcare professionals! While AIP Certified Coach is strictly for practitioners, I have created a 6-week online course geared for everyone else called The AIP Lecture Series.  This course will teach you the scientific foundation of the Autoimmune Protocol diet and lifestyle, with an additional focus on practical implementation, protocol refinement, and troubleshooting.
