Founded in 2022

FMR Wellness Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established by Erica Christ in response to the need for greater evidence and education of the impact of medical nutrition therapy on health outcomes.

Working in the nutrition and fitness industry since 2000, Erica is aware of the limited data and education resources available and is dedicated to establishing, validating and disseminating the latest advances in medical nutrition therapy protocols.



Erica Christ MS, RD, CDCES | Executive Director

Erica has worked in both Westchester and Fairfield counties as a Registered Dietitian, Diabetes Educator, and Pilates instructor for over 20 years.

Deanna Ellison MS, RD | Clinical Nutrition Specialist
As FMR’s clinical nutrition specialist Deanna works with a variety of patients to help manage and treat complex medical conditions. She uses her background as a division one athlete combined with her knowledge of nutrition to support and motivate her clients in making sustainable lifestyle changes.

Louisa Guadagno | Certified Pilates Instructor

Louisa started her fitness career as a certified personal trainer and a 500 hour Yoga Alliance teacher. After experiencing the rehabilitative powers of Pilates after injuries she sustained from an auto accident, Louisa was determined to share her own experiences as a Pilates student with others. This led her to pursue becoming certified in classical Pilates under the instruction of Erica Christ of FMR Wellness.
