Meet the Team
It's nice to meet you. We're the team behind Nourish.
DIETITIAN AND FOUNDER
My name is Lisa Eberly, MPH, RD, and I created Nourish. I am a public health and nutrition masters and registered dietitian in Seattle. I love adventures, cooking, yoga, and sunshine.
I am a total science nerd. I grew up wanting to be a doctor to pursue my passion of helping and healing people with science. I received a human and evolutionary biology degree from USC in 2013. There, while researching fasting for cancer and Alzheimer’s therapies, I realized that the best way to help people was through preventative medicine — food, sweat, and mindfulness.
In blogging and learning about health, I was saddened by the overwhelming amount of education on the web and TV that was not based on science or medicine, but was created for profit or fame. There was a serious gap between the dense scientific journals I was reading and the latest fad diet on the blogs people were talking about. I wondered why there wasn't a place for everyone to find trustworthy and accurate information about their health from a licensed professional they can relate to and understand. I needed to fill that gap and become the professional the public could trust.
Following this passion to make the world a healthier place, I went on to the University of Washington in 2013 to pursue my masters degree in public health and clinical nutrition, where I researched dietary interventions for diabetes patients and completed my clinical internship with cancer, stem cell transplant, and cardiac surgery patients. I obtained my registered dietitian license and completed a traineeship in pediatric pulmonary & high-risk infant nutrition. In Fall of 2015, with my education, research, and clinical experience in tote, I created Nourish.
