*Practices Virtually Worldwide
Hi! My name is Julie Roberti and I am a Registered Dietitian and Certified Transformational Nutrition Coach as well as an AIP Certified Coach! I have been working in the field of nutrition since 1991 and believe that we can heal our bodies by nourishing ourselves with whole foods.
I was diagnosed with an Autoimmune Disease, Connective Tissues Disease, in 2015 and came across the AIP elimination diet. Even with all my experience and knowledge I felt alone. I didn’t know how or where to start and did all the research and practice through trial and error. It was then I knew I wanted to help guide and support people through this process! I believe it is important to have a coach that you can trust and work to co-create a bio-individualized program.
I live in Ponte Vedra, Florida and work for the Dietitians of Palm Valley. We see clients in person and virtually! I am excited to go on this journey with you!

Sonia Sidle, FNTP Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
Morgan Hill, California 95037
Hi, I am Sonia Sidle, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP), certified by the Nutritional Therapy Association. My journey to wellness started many many years ago when I got diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. I had all kinds of symptoms like dry skin, weight gain, foggy brain and more and I naively believed that conventional medicine would be able to help me out. For years I lived with those symptoms while suffering from endometriosis at the same time, and with no end in sight I decided that enough was enough and went to see an integrative doctor. She told me that I would feel better if I started following the AutoImmune Protocol (AIP). Within three months of starting the protocol, I saw a huge difference in my health! Most of my symptoms had disappeared and I felt like a new person. Fast forward a few months, our teenage son was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s as well; even though his pediatrician did not agree with the AIP approach at first, we finally agreed to put him on it. Same thing happened to him, all of his symptoms disappeared. Going through all of this as a family really opened my eyes to the fact that food is medicine and I decided that I could help so many others dealing with the same type of issues. With my experience as a practitioner and as someone who has dealt with autoimmune diseases, I can help guide my clients individually or as a family either in-person or virtually.
Kelli Knudsen AIP Certified Coach, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner
New York, NY
Stamford, CT 06901
*Also practices virtually worldwide
Welcome! I’m thrilled you are here and taking the step to look for a partner in your AIP Wellness journey. I found through my own journey with Hashimoto Thyroiditis that the autoimmune healing path can at times feel solitary. This is one of the many reasons I have become an AIP Certified Coach, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Restart Instructor – to help clients bridge that gap faster between diagnosis and what to do next to begin healing, feeling better and become empowered to transform their health.
With my certifications, teaching experience and decade of also working as a Wellness Coach focused on mindset related to individual health goals, I have the tools and know-how to help you accomplish you AIP goals and be there for you along the way.
I work with clients individually and in groups, both locally in NYC and Stamford, CT, as well as virtually worldwide. Though I do have an increased focus of clients with needs regarding Hashimoto Thyroiditis, Adrenal Fatigue and pregnancy, I enjoy working with all clients on their autoimmune journey who are ready to take the next steps.
There is nothing better than having someone by your side that knows what you are going through, has already experienced it, can help guide you as well as teach you how to be your own best advocate for your healing path ahead.
Everyone has their own bio-individuality and I’m ready to meet you where you are to help you move forward with your goals. Email me to share what you are hoping to accomplish and set-up a complimentary 15-minute call to discover how we may work together.
Laurie Muscutt, CHC Certified Health Coach
I’ve always been interested in healthy lifestyles and learning about how we choose to live makes a difference in our lives. Over the past year I have had to learn how to handle the challenges of an autoimmune disease. I realized that this is not easy and not something that people should navigate alone. Becoming certified in autoimmune protocol enables me to help others make a difference with something that I understand. After trying it all, even some pretty crazy things, I know I can help others. With my personal experience, drive, and knowledge gained from experience and the certification process, I’m ready to go. Ready to help. I now realize how important nutrition is and have the skills to help others incorporate healthy eating and lifestyle in their daily routine. In order to help as many people as possible, I offer affordable prices and flexible scheduling including online conferencing, in-person meetings, and group sessions. You can do it. I know you can. You just need a spark and I can help with that. That’s what I’m passionate about – helping others ignite the spark that leads to a journey of health and living their best lives. You’re unique – I get it. Let me help you find what works for you.

6342 Wood Hollow Ave
Kalamazoo, Michigan 49009
*Also practices virtually worldwide
My name is Wioletta, I’m an RN (BSN), NASM-Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) with nutrition specialization, and certified AIP coach. After battling my own autoimmune disease (Hashimotos), I developed my passion for holistic healing with an emphasis on nutrition. I sought the help of doctors, only to find the same hopeless answer, wait for my thyroid to ‘burn out.’ At that point,I chose to pursue my own path to wellness. During this journey, we also gained a son who was born with several gut-health issues. We quickly found Western medicine ineffective so we decided to take a holistic approach.Through the collaboration with holistic practitioners, and elimination of foods/supplements, we were able to heal his gut. Over the years, my diagnosis has taught me to become more in tune with my body and to let it guide me in my path to recovery. I believe in not only a holistic approach to living, but also looking at the body as a whole in order to heal. Through my commitment to this approach focusing on nutrition, movement and mindfulness, I was able to do what others deemed impossible for someone with autoimmune disease. Successfully, I trained for 7 months to compete in my first bodybuilding competition, and placed at the top of my class. This experience further validated that the food you place in your body and the lifestyle you choose not only help you to attain wellness, but to go above and beyond your limitations. My personal successes have not only changed my life, but have also inspired a passion in me to want to help others be able to live life feeling their best. My goal is to work alongside you, motivate and educate you on how to adopt a healthy lifestyle, and heal your body. Together we will conquer your digestive struggles with personalized nutrition and accountability. I want you to see that a better life is possible. Through personalized lifestyle and nutrition planning, you too can have a healthier, happier, and well-balanced life.
Elizabeth Sedlak, ND Naturopathic Doctor
25195 SW Parkway Ave Ste 210
Wilsonville, Oregon 97070
I am a licensed Naturopathic Doctor (ND) in the state of Oregon. I received my doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, Oregon in 2013 and my bachelor degree in Biochemistry from the University of Oregon in 2009.
When I was a child I struggled a great deal with allergies and asthma, then mysterious joint pains, and by late adolescence I received my first diagnoses of autoimmune diseases and food intolerances. I so wish the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol had been around then! I began to do my own research into health and nutrition, which took me on a 6-year detour through vegetarianism and veganism. Although I was the healthiest I ever had been during those years, I realize now that I was inadvertently depriving my body of certain important nutrients (pre-formed vitamin A, essential fatty acids, heme iron, etc.) that would have been much more helpful in supporting a deranged immune system.
In naturopathic medical school we learn to “treat the gut” as one of the first steps for most patients with chronic disease. This is exactly the aim of AIP! I am so glad to have this template and this body of research to help manage my own health conditions and to provide to my growing population of patients who also struggle with autoimmune diseases of various types. Much of my practice is focused on immune, (neuro)endocrine, and digestive issues – and especially the interplay between these systems.
