Dr. Lesley James welcomes Nutritionist, Heather Carrera to our practice.

Heather CarreraHeather Carrera graduated Magna Cum Laude from Northeastern University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, and a minor in Psychology in 2011. She enrolled in the Masters Program in Human Nutrition program at the University of Bridgeport in 2012, where she studied clinical nutrition, with an emphasis on an integrative and functional approach to assessing and counseling clients. She understands the value of nutrition in promoting wellness and managing illness, and focuses on the treatment of underlying causes of disease, not symptoms. Heather uses an evidence-based, scientific approach to provide customized diet and nutrient recommendations that will address the bio-individuality of each person. Functional assessment through the use of laboratory tests is a big part of understanding the unique biochemical makeup of individuals, and will be a critical aspect of creating your personalized treatment plan. She is fluent in Spanish, and currently lives with her husband in Webster.

Heather´s mission is to utilize nutrition to prevent and heal disease, and promote a healthy, active lifestyle.
