Lisa’s passion for nutrition arose when her first daughter was born unresponsive and with severe health issues. Through her journey to help her daughter deal with the complexities of a genetic diagnosis, a congenital heart defect, many surgeries, and then autism, Lisa recognized the paramount roles both nutrition and mindset play in nurturing her daughters, herself, and her clients. Lisa has completed training specific to Nutrition and Autism and she has also run a home based bio-medical and cognitive structured autism program for her daughter from 2008 to 2013.
