Meet Elizabeth

Elizabeth is a registered dietitian and the founder of City to Sea Nutrition. She graduated pre-med with a B.S. in Biology from Trinity College, where she developed a passion for and interest in learning more about the complex relationships between food, behaviors, the brain, and the microbiome. This inspired her to complete her second B.S. at LIU Post in Nutrition Sciences followed by a 52-week dietetic internship at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan.

In addition to one-on-one counseling, Elizabeth has extensive clinical experience with both adult and pediatric populations at hospitals throughout New York City, including NYU Langone, Weill Cornell, and Columbia University Medical Center. Her interest in nutrition-related public policy and desire to work with underserved communities has led to experiences outside of the hospital setting, including spending time as a nutrition education volunteer in Tanzania, Africa. She has also worked as a research assistant and nutrition counselor for Cooking Up Energy, a cooking & nutrition education program for predominantly BIPOC children and adolescents at the Boys & Girls Club.

Elizabeth’s diverse background in science, medical nutrition therapy and community nutrition has provided her with the necessary tools to help clients navigate the increasingly complex, and often confusing, world of nutrition and wellness. Her program and methods are suitable for all ages and populations, including those who are looking to improve their general health as well as those with chronic conditions and disorders.  Elizabeth's unique and holistic approach to counseling takes into account a variety of factors that influence health aside from nutrition alone, including behaviors, genetics, stress, sleep patterns, and relationships, to name a few. In an effort to help people cultivate healthy relationships with food and their bodies, Elizabeth utilizes an integrative, “all foods fit” approach and incorporates Intuitive Eating principles that are rooted in evidence-based research. Her goal is to guide clients in creating meaningful, sustainable behaviors that focus on long-term health and well-being.

When she’s not working, Elizabeth enjoys cooking, traveling, playing tennis, exploring with her rescue dog, Nash, and searching Manhattan for award-winning gnocchi and desserts.
