Personalized Nutrition Care
You are getting older, but you still want to be active and healthy. You want personalized nutrition, not a cookie cutter approach.
It’s time to discover the right foods for you based on your medical history, lifestyle, genetics, and most importantly, what you like to eat.
Hi, I’m Elizabeth
It’s important to me to have enough energy to do the things I want and need to do throughout my day. I don’t want to be weighed down by pain or fatigue.
How About You?
Something you might not know about me: I was born and grew up in Nigeria. Many of us in our expat community dreamed of eating apples. We baked faux apple pie, and ate mango sauce instead of apple sauce. Little did I know that when I was grown up I would live next door to an apple orchard. Then all I wanted was a mango fresh off the tree.
As I traveled between countries I saw many contrasts not just in the type of food, but in the availability. In Nigeria at that time there weren’t many processed foods, and we prepared everything from scratch. In the United States a grocery store has aisles and aisles of food choices that can be overwhelming. By the time I was ready to choose a career there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to learn more about food.
My Education and Experience
After completing my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition at Penn State University, I worked with clients at all stages of life. This included pregnant and breastfeeding women, infants and children with the WIC program, and food service positions in both daycare centers for children and geriatric communities.
To train as a Functional Nutritionist, I went back to school for my Master of Science in Human Nutrition at the University of Bridgeport. This program has a focus on Functional Nutrition, bio-individuality and a scientific, evidence-based approach.
Since then I have completed 1000 hours of supervised practical experience and passed a rigorous exam to qualify as a Certified Nutrition Specialist® (CNS®).
I am required to complete 75 hours of continuing education every five years to maintain the CNS® credential and stay abreast of the field of nutrition. I do this with joy since love of learning is my top character strength.
Did I mention how much I love food? I would love to help you discover which foods are right for you.

During the pandemic I lost 30 lbs that I didn’t need to lose. Elizabeth helped me to gain weight and develop a healthier diet. I gained 10 lbs so far and I haven’t had Lean Cuisine since she and I started working together. Elizabeth listens to you and takes a genuine interest in your goals and helps you get there!
I contacted Elizabeth after suffering with arthritis-like pain. Conventional medicine wanted me on all sorts of prescriptions. That wasn’t what I wanted, so I sought out nutritional help. She went through my diet and came up with a plan based on my needs. I could feel myself getting better day by day. It took a few months, but I am pain free and drug free. Not even Advil! She is very supportive and listens to all of your concerns. I cannot believe how good I feel compared to a few months ago.
Elizabeth truly listens to your challenges and goals and creates a plan that is perfectly curated for you. I was feeling very sluggish and having swings in my hunger. After reviewing my food intake and blood work, Elizabeth worked with me to adjust my diet and add in necessary vitamins and supplements. Within two months, I felt (and continue to feel) 100x better. I have so much more energy and feel really good about my food choices thanks to her great recommendations. I cannot recommend Elizabeth enough.
