Debra is the founder and research director of NuScience Solutions, a nutrition research and consulting firm based in Phoenix, Arizona. As a nutritionist and health detective, Debra evaluates the many variables that contribute to chronic health conditions and works closely with her clients to create personalized nutrition and lifestyle plans that can be implemented and maintained over the long term. It’s important to Debra that her clients understand what’s not operating right in their bodies and why specific recommendations may work better than others.

As a Kundalini yoga practitioner and teacher, Debra respects the mind-body connection and incorporates mind-body principles into her work with clients.

Debra started her career in engineering after receiving a BS in Chemical Engineering from the Colorado School of Mines, and a PhD in Chemical Engineering and Biochemistry from Cornell University. When her health began to suffer, she was drawn back to school on a quest to solve her own and others’ health challenges. She completed an MS in Nutrition & Integrative Health at Maryland University of Integrative Health and committed herself to improving human health with science-based nutritional solutions. Debra supplements her education and training by maintaining CNS (Certified Nutrition Specialist) and RYT200 (Registered Yoga Teacher) certifications, as well as membership with the American College of Nutrition.

In her spare time, Debra enjoys yoga, spending time with her family, knitting toys and sweaters, and experimenting with recipes.
