Lis Rodriguez, RDN
A patient and practitioner who gets it.
Lis earned her Bachelor's of Science degree in Nutrition & Dietetics at The University of Delaware and completed her accredited didactic internship at The Geisinger Medical Center in Pennsylvania. She worked as a clinical dietitian in the hospital setting for the first four years of her career, encountering a broad array of medical conditions.
During her early adult life, Lis began expressing multiple autoimmune illnesses. She resigned from the hospital, learned how to nurture her health, and began her private practice in 2009. She's continued to sharpen her skills as a Dietitian in Integrative & Functional Medicine (DIFM) and a Certified Lifestyle Eating and Performance (LEAP) Therapist trained to treat and detect food and chemical sensitivities. She's personally navigating complex chronic disease, including chronic Lyme and mold related CIRS with ongoing treatments, which recently resulted in an extended health sabbatical.
Today Lis lives in Arizona where she provides guidance on how to use food and supplements to thrive based on one's unique medical challenges. She does this by email consultation and offers pro bono access to patients who otherwise might not be able to afford such guidance.
Lis loves to hike and trail run, play piano, and take naps. She continues to work toward healing with an open mind, a dogged determination, continuously tweaking her self-care routine, and sharing her knowledge with those in need.
