Liz obtained her Bachelor’s and Master’s of Science degrees in Nutrition and Dietetics from Loma Linda University in California. While completing her graduate degree, she created a nutrition program for young athletes with the goal of teaching them healthy habits to increase future athletic performance. Liz has worked in geriatric nutrition during the time she was studying for her master’s degree and has continued working with geriatrics as a consultant to skilled nursing facilities. She has consulted with Keck Medicine of USC working with the kidney and liver transplant patients and worked for DaVita to guide dialysis patients in proper nutrition. Since 2019, Liz has taught an educational course in Diabetes Prevention which was created by the Center For Disease Control (CDC).
Liz’s practice is based on the Health At Every Size Paradigm which celebrates body diversity and values body knowledge and people’s lived experiences. Liz teaches that no matter our body size, race or socioeconomic status, everyone deserves optimum health and wellness by taking focus off body size, weight loss and the myth of “good and bad” foods and shifting focus to each person’s individualism through behavioral change. Liz has always had a special place in her heart for people who struggle with body image, disordered eating and digestive problems as those are issues she has personal experience with. She is excited about helping people set health goals and providing them with the tools to meet them.
