She has over 10 years of experience providing medical nutrition therapy, nutrition counseling, and physical activity training to several clients across Oklahoma and surrounding states.

As a mother of three, she also has a genuine passion for educating parents and guardians on how to keep their kids healthy!

Umo believes that when it comes to achieving a healthy lifestyle, it’s important to look beyond what you eat and see the bigger picture. This includes the necessities of sleep, stress, physical activity, emotional health, and other individual habits. Establishing a foundation of healthy eating and physical activity are key. The greatest challenge for most is how to accomplish this while navigating the obstacles of everyday life. This is why Umo is passionate about tailoring her clients’ care and instilling full confidence in the behavior changes made to become the BEST version of themselves.

When Umo isn’t at Well Rooted, she enjoys having dance parties with her adorable kiddos and spending time with her amazing husband, who she works alongside training athletes to obtain their optimal performance and improve physical recovery. Umo is equally in love with physical fitness as she is with nutrition, and fulfills this through weight training, spin class, or high-intensity interval training (H.I.I.T.) As a self-proclaimed foodie, she also loves spending time in the kitchen and experimenting with healthy alternatives to delicious meals found in local restaurants.
