Metabolic Coordinator

Tara Peterson



Tara Peterson is an ACE Certified Health Coach, NCCA, functional nutritionist, and behavioral change specialist, with  18 years of experience in the traditional healthcare setting.  After many years of caring for patients with chronic illness, metabolic syndrome, and complications of these illnesses, she felt called to do more than treat the symptoms, to look at healthcare as a whole-body approach. 

Tara believes that every patient has a story, a root cause for their pain and struggles.  It is with great honor and joy to be able to meet clients where they are on their journey, and walk them into the healthy lifestyle they have always dreamed of, but never thought possible. Tara believes in each of her patients’ ability to attain their dreams of abundant, healthier life. 

It is through her personal health journey that she found the freedom and benefits of lifestyle as medicine.  Even as a young child Tara struggled with constant belly pain, bloating, and IBS symptoms. After not receiving solutions from conventional medicine, she researched everything to alleviate the pain. Discovering that eliminating gluten, and following a low-carb, clean eating lifestyle restored health in her own life, she began studying functional medicine.  Tara uses an evidence-based approach to assist in the healing of the whole- body, connecting physical health to mental and spiritual well-being. She enjoys creating personalized nutrition and guiding patients with lifestyle modifications. 


When not living out her calling, Tara along with her husband are busy raising their twin daughters in the quaint lake town of Branson, Missouri.  Together they enjoy exploring the outdoors, through hiking, mountain biking, and watersports. Tara enjoys trail running and is always looking for a new way to challenge herself both professionally and through personal endeavors.
