Patricia Forquer, RN Registered Nurse, AIPCC, Holistic Health Coach

Hi! I’m Patricia and I am really excited to be part of this network of very skilled practitioners. I’m also thrilled to add my AIP certification to my skill set because this protocol has helps strengthen my healing potential and these skills are greatly needed for this growing population of patients. My own personal journey dealing with Hashimoto’s led me to expand my skills as a Registered Nurse, become AIP Certified & a Holistic Health Coach. These skills now allow me to build on the compassion I have for my patients seeking guidance with their life challenges and finally allows me to share the amazing skills which have greatly helped me. I have been a Registered Nurse for 20+ years with experience in several areas although my initial & main focus has always been Women’s Health. I have recently expanded my focus & skills to incorporate a more holistic approach to health and wellness (the foundational skills I learned as a nurse) by addressing “Longevity Wellness” to address our greatly expanding aging population which definitely deserves the patience, compassion & a more focused plan of care. I look forward to helping others in their search for health and wellness.

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.

I am an Institute for Integrative Nutrition Certified Health Coach and a Certified Autoimmune Protocol Coach who is unbelievably passionate about health and wellness.
My personal health journey is what led me to the exciting field of health coaching. For years I suffered the effects of ovarian cysts, endometriosis, migraines, Hoshimoto’s thyroiditis, hypothyroidism, Epstein Barr virus, Lyme disease, adrenal fatigue and depression. When traditional methods of treatment only alleviated some of my symptoms, I began searching for answers to the causes of my health condition and am grateful for the transformation it has made and continues to make in my health journey. I understand the struggles that come with an autoimmune diagnosis and how AIP can be a game changer! Having personally benefited from Autoimmune Protocol in addition to other lifestyle changes, I am excited to combine my knowledge and skills to help others embrace this approach that allows you to enjoy, experiment and experience the boundaries of wellness while living with an autoimmune disease.

My name is Belinda Motaze and I am a certified health coach. My focus is children’s health and childhood chronic illnesses.

I focus on children because I believe there is not enough being done to educate parents on prevention. Many of the chronic illnesses adults are dealing with started during childhood. There is a serious need for education, wholesome coaching when it comes to pediatric care. I believe AIP training is a a great addition to all the trainings and years of coaching. It gives me knowledge and confidence to assist and empower parents when it comes to managing their children’s health and preventing many of the chronic illnesses we see today in the pediatric world.

I work with parents worldwide by offering virtual consultations ( or locally ( My first language is French so I also offer consultations en Francais.

Hi! My name is Geri Baxter and I’m Board Certified in Holistic Nutrition (Candidate) as well as an AIP Certified Coach.

My passion for functional medicine began while trying to navigate my own health issues. Having a strong family history of autoimmunity sparked my curiosity in learning how to manage disease through a balanced life and optimal nutrition.

I’m Katherine Smith, a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist and Autoimmune Paleo Certified Coach. My personal experience with autoimmune diseases includes vitiligo, endometriosis and frozen shoulders. I have worked as an RD for over 20 years, and have seen the increase in chronic illnesses despite the claims of modern medicine. The lack of attention to addressing the root cause of illness and the use of only prescription medications with no focus on nutrition were frustrating for me. After learning about AIP through a patient, I was intrigued and excited to learn about the power of nutrition for autoimmune diseases. After all, I entered the field of nutrition to learn how nutrition could improve health. Now, my approach to medical nutrition therapy includes Autoimmune Paleo and I have seen tremendous results. I would be honored to help others learn more and be empowered through nutrition.

Jaime Hartman, NTP Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Registered Yoga Teacher

Alexandria, Virginia
*Practices virtually worldwide

I am Jaime Hartman, a Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner and Registered Yoga Teacher who believes that nurturing both the body and the mind is essential for living well with autoimmune disease. I have a master’s degree in educational psychology and over 20 years of experience in teaching, coaching, and motivating both adults and young people.

I started my blog, Gutsy By Nature, in 2013 to share my story of how I was personally using real food healing protocols to manage the effects of living with post-surgical Crohn’s disease, and was one of the earliest AIP-focused recipe blogs. Although AIP is the protocol that ultimately worked the best for me, I also have experience with and knowledge of others commonly used for inflammatory bowel diseases, including the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD) and the Low-FODMAP diet.

I work with clients with a variety of autoimmune diagnoses and symptoms, but my particular area of interest is conditions that affect the digestive system directly, including Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), gastroesophageal reflex disease (GERD), and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). “One size does not fit all” is my mantra when it comes to using diet to manage these. We each have our own unique needs and tolerances and these may change over the course of our lifetime. I will teach you the tools, resources, skills, and habits to take charge of your own health so that you too can live well!
