I am a Certified Health Counselor, Certified Personal Trainer, Executive Functioning Coach, Healthy Cooking Instructor, and Corporate Wellness Specialist.

After receiving my B.S. from Cornell University where I began my only personal journey towards wellness, my newly discovered passion led to my formal training in New York City as an Accredited Health Counselor at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, as well as honing my culinary skills at the Natural Gourmet School and Pratt Institute.

I then earned my Personal Training Certification at the American Fitness Institute, and my Corporate Wellness Certification from Vital Advantage Corporate Wellness Consulting

I continue to consistently expand my expertise with continuing education courses on topics including family therapy, anxiety, depression, panic, integrative psychiatry, and DBT. After moving from New York to Boulder in 2013, I began to meld my passions for wellness and the brain by developing expertise in the significant and well-documented connections between mental illness and the microbiome (a.k.a. the gut).

My personal experience and extensive training have resulted in nearly two decades of proven success helping personal clients, corporate clients, and clients referred by psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals.

I attribute my success to shunning “quick-fix” diets that inevitably fail, and by customizing wellness strategies to accommodate each individual’s unique physical and emotional challenges.

My powerful Kill The Diet philosophy includes teaching nutrition, fitness, and healthy cooking strategies to ensure lifelong healthy living and balance.

My kitchen in Boulder, CO is always stocked because I love to cook and to share my passion for wellness with my family and friends!


My passion is to help you live your healthiest and most harmonious life, but in a way that's realistic and practical for you as a unique individual on this planet. My philosophy is all about "balance," and never  a diet since a diet is not sustainable for life, aka Kill The Diet.

Balance is what leads to harmony, and ultimately to happiness…and isn’t happiness what we’re all seeking? Balance does not mean deprivation and guilt, because you can still indulge if you learn how to avoid over-indulgence

To discover your natural balance, you need some tools and resources:

  • You need a roadmap so you know where you're going.
  • You need a blueprint so you know what to do.
  • You need a guide to show you how to do it, hold you accountable…and be your biggest fan and cheerleader during your quest!

Tri-Wellness is all of the above and integrates the three essential pillars of wellness:

  1. Nutrition - Helping you tweak your food choices…so you can still enjoy your favorites without deprivation or guilt.
  2. Fitness - Helping you customize an ideal fitness plan that you actually enjoy.
  3. Healthy Cooking - Helping you learn (or sharpen) healthy cooking skills…that will still have everyone asking for seconds!

I assure you that anyone can learn these skills and strategies. So even if you can’t boil water, or read a nutrition label, or do not own a pair of running shoes...you can do this. Tri-Wellness works. Tri-Wellness is life-changing. Tri-Wellness is fun! Try wellness the Tri-Wellness way and discover how to build your foundation! You’ll be amazed at the results.

Lisa’s weight loss plan really gave me a new insight to healthy eating and living. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2015. Healthy living/easting/exercise has become very important to me and my family and this program really helped me get even more on the course with this and helped me lose weight.

When I heard about the 10 Day Weight Loss Challenge, I wasn’t sure if it would be a good fit, since as a physician, I understand nutrition and health (and therefore knew the dangers of fad diets, etc…), and I do my best to exercise (though not always enough).

But as a single mother of 2, it’s still very challenging ti “fit in all in” (including cooking healthy meals for my children) due to my busy schedule. And when my time is short, bad habits crop up and weight gain follows.

Lisa has made an enormous contribution to my health and strength.

I have seen and felt the most fantastic changes in an amazingly short time.

I just wanted to say you were amazing through this 10 day process!

I learned so much from you! You were very thorough in all areas of the challenge and got back to us in such a quick manner with our questions.

It was a great jump start into a more healthy life style that’s for sure!
