Brenna Thompson is a registered and licensed dietitian, with a Master’s Degree in Applied Nutrition. She has experience working with people who struggle with autoimmune disease, digestive disorders, cardio-metabolic disease, infertility and women’s hormones, food sensitivities, chronic pain, binge eating, and just about anything in between. Brenna believes no one eating style is right for every person: what works for some doesn’t for others. She encourages patients to make changes they can stick with and that support their goals.
Ashley Oswald founded Oswald Digestive Clinic in 2016 after being frustrated to see people struggle with their gut health, while knowing that there are ways to help them improve and often resolve their bothersome symptoms. After struggling with her own gut heath issues from being on and off antibiotics for 10 years as a child to her early 20’s, Ashley is passionate about helping others to improve and eliminate their gut health issues too, and to regain their freedom in life. She has completed 7 years of schooling in nutrition science, including a year at Harvard’s Brigham And Women’s Hospital, and has worked in a variety of settings in the health care system, so has a unique big picture view of where there are gaps.
