Anthony Rodriguez, Executive Wellness Chef

A Chef by passion and a nerd by heart Anthony enjoys a good tabletop game as much as he enjoys creating a 4-course meal. Growing up as a latchkey kid in a military family Anthony would walk home from school, with his younger sister, to instructions left by Mom on how to start and cook dinner. When that wasn’t the case dinner was always a whole family affair, everyone around the table at the same time sharing their day. Learning to spin the spice rack and add fun to any dish that he made Anthony developed a passion for creating delicious food for others to enjoy.

Attending Le Cordon Bleu Culinary Academy in 2010 Anthony excelled in his classes and took his culinary training to New Orleans to start his professional culinary career. Taking his skills from fine dining restaurants to hole in the wall eateries and even specialty bakeries, Anthony learned as much as he could from anyone willing to teach him.

In his off time, Anthony enjoys almost anything computer entertainment-related along with tabletop RPGs, a la Dungeons and Dragons. If he’s not doing that you can probably find him on the softball field or behind the grill with family and friends.

Bringing his skills and knowledge to PFC, Anthony loves to give people those classic comfort flavors and experiences with the twist of having them nurture and advance a clean and healthier eating lifestyle.

Katie Di Lauro, Nutrition Director

Katie is lucky enough to combine her passion and hobby of nutrition into her career. She started in the wellness field in 2002 when she began personal training. After graduating with a degree in applied nutrition, Katie began traveling nationwide training schools of grades K-12on how to create coordinated school health programs. She then pivoted to corporate wellness, designing and implementing wellness programs for organizations committing to creating healthy workplace environments to support their employee’s overall wellbeing. 

The benefits of working in wellness are experiencing the life-changing shifts in individuals’ lives. Being an Integrated and Functional Certified Practitioner allows Katie to work with clients to uncover the root causes of symptoms, such as food sensitivities, lifestyle sources of inflammation, and nutrition choices. Katie joined the PFC team as Director of Nutrition with a goal of providing practical, essential, and empowering nutrition education in addition to providing integrative and functional lifestyle intervention to improve overall health status with a special focus on digestive health, heart health, and energy level due to micronutrient absorption.
