Lisa is a board certified nutrition specialist, utilizing a functional and realistic approach to wellness. Lisa specializes in complex disease states including chronic metabolic and inflammatory disorders (diabetes and blood sugar management, cardiovascular health, high cholesterol, hypertension), digestive diseases and disorders (Crohns, Colitis, Celiac, Sibo, Dysbiosis, gut microbiome), autoimmune disorders while optimizing relationship with food.

Lisa works with clients who want to find optimal health but are confused about where to start or are feeling stuck by the vague advice given to them. She uses a personalized approach to empower clients with their goals of feeling better, having more energy, and being able to participate in life while managing complex disease states. Lisa practices from a place of empathy, without judgment or fear-based tactics, and instead works with clients to achieve their goals.

Lisa found her passion for nutrition at an early age when experimenting with different dietary approaches and culinary forays, and since then she has been on a journey to figure out how to regain health, how to find an intuitive way to eat, and also how to help others do the same.

Lisa holds a Master’s degree in Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut and is dedicated to continuing her education in the ever-changing field of nutrition, including in the areas of the gut microbiome, mental health, and metabolic wellness.

In her free time, she enjoys lounging in a hammock by an alpine lake with her husband and two dogs or making all of the snacks and mocktails for various life pursuits (because the best things in life require snacks).
