An Island resident for more than 20 years, Elizabeth will always be a Texan at heart. She received her Bachelor of Science in Dietetics from the University of Texas at Austin and later went on to receive her Master’s in Exercise and Sports Science from the University of Florida. She was a gymnast and cheerleader through college and attributes her interest in health and nutrition to her involvement in gymnastics. She has over 26 years of experience in helping people to improve their health through lifestyle modification involving nutrition and fitness.
In addition to being a Registered Dietitian, she is a Certified Diabetes Educator® through the National Certification Board of Diabetes Educators. She has experience as a clinical exercise physiologist in cardiac rehab and coordinated Hilton Head Hospital’s Diabetes Education program where she maintained program recognition status through the American Diabetes Association for over 16 years. She remains passionate about helping people with diabetes live a healthy life and continues to consult as a certified insulin pump trainer and volunteers at a diabetes youth camp.
Elizabeth enjoys a balance of both medical and lifestyle components of personal health and nutrition plans. Her passion for health education and a realistic approach to healthy eating make her a perfect fit for captaining Hilton Head Health’s nutrition philosophy. Outside of work, Elizabeth enjoys spending time with her husband and daughter and enjoys the many outdoor activities that our beautiful island offers.
