This week on The Less Stressed Life Podcast, I have my co-pilot Jenna DeKok on with me. Jenna is also a registered dietician who works along side me in my private practice. In this episode, Jenna interviews me on what labs we use and why. I share my experience with labs that I used in the past but traded out or stopped using altogether and why.

ABOUT JENNA:Jenna is a consulting registered dietitian via her business Nutritiously Jenna and associate practitioner at Less Stressed Life Nutrition. She started working with Christa in 2018 doing mentorship hours for her undergraduate degree. Since then, she's touched business operation roles, social media management, program content creation, and is currently working 1:1 with clients. Her passion for women's wellness came from her firsthand struggles with disordered eating that led to a variety of gut, hormone, and energy issues. This is ultimately why she loves to help women truly understand their bodies by diving deeper into the important but often not-so-talked-about areas of women's health!
