Lizzie was born and raised in Massachusetts. Her family got a membership at her local YMCA when she was in high school, and Lizzie immediately fell in love with how empowering regular exercise felt. Ultimately, she began making gradual changes to her nutrition and couldn’t stop reading about it! After taking a sports nutrition class, Lizzie knew she wanted to pursue a career as a dietitian. Lizzie has worked in a variety of settings, including a level 1 trauma center and long-term care. She is a detail-oriented person and likes using this skill to collaborate with patients to come up with creative solutions to achieve their nutrition goals.
Lizzie’s counseling style is collaborative, patient-led, and supportive. She always meets patients where they are and likes to work together with her patients to come up with solutions. Lizzie always respects her patients’ cultural foods and traditions when setting goals, and wants her patients to know they are on the same team.
In her spare time, Lizzie enjoys spending time with her pets, being active (whether it’s a long walk or taking a class at the gym), and challenging herself with a new recipe. Fun fact: Lizzie has 2 dogs, a golden retriever named Tzatziki (Zeke for short) and Kohlrabi (Kohl), as well as a rabbit named Cookie!
