Thanks for stopping by.
AS A Functional HEALTH and EPIGENETIC Human Potential COACH, EXECUTIVE COACH, and author, MY Mission IS to create innovative, hYPER-EFFECTIVE SOLUTIONS and Environments Enabling HIGH-PERFORMING WOMEN to thrive.
The intersections of health, technology, science, food and human performance have always fascinated me.
Raised in a family of nerdy food experts and entrepreneurs, the “food as medicine” ethos was ingrained early on. The kitchen was quickly understood as a place of kinship, social agreement and, ultimately, the epicenter of health.
After completing my undergraduate degree, I moved to San Francisco and took, what seemed at the time, a detour into technology. Working closely with the leaders of emerging and Fortune technology companies in human capital and executive development, I found myself chasing the "more is more" mentality like everyone around me. Eventually, I experienced my own form of entrepreneur burnout which lead me back to my roots in food.
Rebuilding my health from the ground up took time. From that experience, I became a strong advocate for biochemical individuality (an individual's innate metabolic makeup and nutrient needs) and nutrigenomics (the way food interfaces with a person's genes) as I witnessed how impactful a highly-personalized approach to health can be.
The health strategies I create support female entrepreneurs and executives to maintain a steady, upward trajectory via precision nutrient therapy, lifestyle recalibration, and science-backed behavior change methodologies
I've cooked for the Iron Chefs during many heated battles on Next Food Network Star and have been featured in the iconic James Beard Foundation's, JBF Notes. My contributions have been included on mindbodygreen, Shape.com, Prevention Magazine, San Francisco Chronicle, Edible Publications, Slow Food, as well as local SF Bay Area newspapers, magazines, television and radio stations. My first book, The Modern Salad, released in August 2016.
I hold a BA in Media Arts/Digital Media and a MS in Health and Nutrition Education. I’m currently pursuing my Board Certification (BCHN), Epigenetic Human Potential Coaching Certification, and am a pilot member of the esteemed Executive Coaching Certification with Thrive Global.
“I met Elizabeth at a wellness retreat, and was intrigued by the services she offered as a Functional Health Coach. The meeting was serendipitous for me, as I had struggled with many question marks and health concerns that my Western medical providers could not diagnose or treat for nearly 4 years. Despite my standard medical labs indicating normal-range results, my body was screaming that something was not right, and I wanted to take control and improve my health but needed guidance that I could trust and adopt.
I began working with Elizabeth and within just one week she was able to identify key areas of my health that are vulnerable to imbalance, despite not being identified by Western medical laboratory tests. Elizabeth was able to utilize the lab tests that I had already labored through with my doctors, and analyze those results using her expertise and technology. The result was a comprehensive report with a deep explanation of my vulnerabilities, plus a pragmatic health strategy that fit nicely into my lifestyle to improve my condition, while also moving me in the direction of optimization.
Elizabeth has been such a gift to my life. She is highly compassionate, intellectual, intuitive, and supportive. She has been with me each step of the way, with consistent check-ins to ensure that my questions are answered and support to maintain traction on my path to optimal health. She has gone above and beyond to provide me with effective 1:1 coaching to improve my health and life.
I encourage anyone who wants to uncover their own limitations to health, get closer to identifying the root of their imbalances, or simply optimize their own health through sustainable shifts, to absolutely work with this powerful healer!” - Steffanie G. | Healthcare Executive
