Integrative and Functional Registered Dietitian
My name is Kylie Fagnano. I am a Registered Dietitian, trained as an Integrative and Functional Nutrition Certified Practitioner, as well as a Certified Leap Therapist. I earned my BS in Psychology and my Master’s in Nutrition in Scranton, PA. I then moved to Portland, ME for a few years, where Strata Nutrition was born out of my little apartment!
Shortly after my move to Portland, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, an autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid gland, causing a cascade of life-disrupting symptoms. When the only medical treatment option I was offered was thoughtless and unacceptable, I turned to my food and my gut. I realized how fortunate I was to have the resources and tools to take control of my health in this way. Knowing that this is NOT true for most people in similar situations is one of the observations that drives me to do this work. We all deserve to understand the aspects of our health that are actually in our control — even if these pieces of information are not often discussed or shared.
The work that I ask and expect from my clients is the same work that I did for myself. I *literally* understand what it feels like, what other feelings the process can bring up, and how lonely and hopeless it can sometimes seem.
Outside of the nutrition field, I love moving around and being playful. I have been a dancer my entire life, and I continue to take classes and teach. I love to garden, sew, and I earned my blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu! I also LOVE to travel. Pre-COVID plans included traveling the world for the entire year and running my business remotely… Needless to say, that was canceled.
Maybe most importantly to you — I love my work. My heart is so filled up when I’m partnering with motivated clients who are really ready for change. Being invited on someone’s deep and emotional journey is a true honor.
While I may not understand your exact pain or your precise situation, I do understand what it is like to be in pain. I relate to struggle, confusion, and feelings of hopelessness. If you decide you want to spend your time, energy, and resources working with me, you’ll be getting someone who wants you to win, someone who has your back, and someone who wants to see you succeed.
If you’re ready for answers, I’m here, and I’m really excited for you!

About Strata Nutrition
Strata means “layers.”
I chose the name Strata to describe my work because that’s exactly how I see nutrition. There are many, many layers that have led you to where you are today. All of those layers need to be considered and added to the mix when we are trying to make changes and get results.
If you decide to work with me, you’ll get someone who understands what it feels like to struggle with knowing what to eat, how to take care of yourself, and how to discover the right answers.
You will have a guide to support you, push you, teach you, and provide you with more information and understanding on what your body actually needs from you to get better.
Strata Nutrition’s Mission
I aim To identify the root causes of your symptoms, help you organize a plan to address those root causes, and obtain life-long results.
Client success Stories
“One of the things I was hesitant about prior to starting with Kylie was my concern about a lack of support. However, I was reassured by Kylie’s overall demeanor and she didn’t leave me feeling confused, unsure, or unsupported. After one and a half months of working with Kylie, my quality of life has improved GREATLY. My physical symptoms are manageable and almost gone entirely. I feel like I have a greater understanding about nutrition that will follow me beyond this service. My relationship with food has gone from thoughtless and negative, to intentional and positive.”
“I gained SO much self-awareness. How the foods I’m eating are affecting my chronic pain, even foods I thought were healthy and good for me. How much of an effect EVERYTHING that I put into my body has on my physical comfort level. How I’m in a state of constant-stress, and how to take steps to correct that.”
“I experienced SO MANY wonderful changes just within the first two weeks. My eczema cleared up after months of being VERY irritated. My acid reflux was non-existent as long as I was following the plan. My bloating, which was my main issue, was gone! I was no longer experiencing stomach pains every meal or even every day.”
“Learning about what works with my body as far as foods, and lifestyle was a huge benefit. So much of it seems like common sense but I just didn’t know…I think most people could benefit in some capacity by learning what works with their bodies, and what works against them.”
