About Me

Hello, I’m Justin Perr, a registered dietitian and functional medicine practitioner on a mission to optimize health and promote longevity through the power of nutrition and holistic approaches. With a focus on building health from the ground up, I specialize in resistant weight loss and metabolic diseases to create changes that will last.

My journey into the world of functional nutrition and medicine began with a strong foundation in public health. As an undergraduate at Tulane University, I immersed myself in the study of infectious diseases, understanding their impact on both individuals and communities. Though I loved learning about tropical diseases and microbial evolution, it became clear through my studies that nutrition is a much larger problem in America. This caused me to shift my focus towards nutrition as a major lever for creating and maintaining long-lasting health.

Driven by my passion to delve deeper into the realm of nutrition and its role as a preventative measure, I pursued a master’s degree in nutrition, healthspan, and longevity at the renowned University of Southern California Leonard Davis School of Gerontology. During this time, I had the privilege of completing clinical internship hours through USC, gaining invaluable experience and insight into various medical specialties.

Throughout my clinical internship, I was able to rotate through Keck Hospital, where I gained hands-on experience in the hepatobiliary ICU, neurology ICU, and the cardiac ICU. During this experience, I saw people that were suffering immensely from diseases that were completely preventable in some cases. This further fueled my passion for early nutrition as a primary intervention against disease.

Continuing my commitment to staying at the forefront of healthcare, I am currently completing additional education in functional medicine through the Institute of Functional Medicine and studying herbalism. This multifaceted approach enables me to blend the best practices of both conventional medicine and holistic healing, empowering my clients to address the root causes of their health challenges and achieve sustainable, long-term wellness.

I look forward to working with you on your path to vitality and longevity!
