"Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit as well;...
and not today's pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and outlook of a man."

Lisa's primary objectives:
I am a resource for you, a "go to person you can trust" to cut through the confusing information and help you find practical strategies for living a healthy life. A background in nutrition and psychology and years of experience working with my clients has meant that I have a "box full of tricks and practical strategies" that take health off the "too hard" shelf and put in back within your reach. The result is, by working together, you can again love the way you look and feel.
I really resonate with this quote and feel that it sums up my philosophy, approach and commitment to you and promoting health:
“I become an agent of change... only to the degree that I begin to live to help things go right rather than simply to correct things that are going wrong. Rather than simply correcting, for example, I need to reenergize my teaching, my helping, my listening, my learning. I need to put time and effort into building relationships. And so on. If I don’t work the bottom part of the pyramid, I won’t be successful at the top."
(The Arbinger Institute)
