Liz lives in Fairfield, CT, with her husband of 27 years, her bulldog Otis and enjoys weekend visits from her daughters, ages 18 and 21. Liz holds a Master’s degree in Human Nutrition, is a board-certified Nutrition Specialist, and is a licensed dietitian-nutritionist in Connecticut. As a breast cancer survivor, Liz is passionate about the role nutrition and lifestyle can play in preventing and treating chronic disease and has recently launched her private nutrition practice, A Little Healthier. Liz believes that even the smallest change to one’s diet and lifestyle can impact health in a meaningful way and that everyone can be “A Little Healthier.” Liz spends her free time in the kitchen cooking and developing (mostly) healthy recipes, taking long walks, spending time with friends and family, and traveling. Liz loves a good movie, a great meal, an even greater dessert, and an excellent margarita!
