Elisa is tired of the status quo that posits disease as synonymous with old age and your genetics as your fate, and firmly believes that each meal is a chance to impact mental and physical health. She lives in Brooklyn, NY with her two crazy kittens.
These are a few more things you should know about her.
Q: Why did you become a health coach?
A: I became a health coach because I learned very early on that recipes and information are only a small part of the healing plan. My work is about being a detective in addressing root cause resolution and providing a framework that helps patients create a new normal around their lifestyle and diet. Information is helpful, but connection and accountability are the greatest benefits that health coaches provide and I love sitting in that role.
Q: What’s the best part of your job?
A: The best part of my job is when everything clicks for a patient and they have that “aha” moment where they get the value of upgrading the diet and lifestyle.
Q: What are the three things you do every day that make it better?
A: Exercise, eat chocolate and do something good for someone else.
Q: If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
A: Brooklyn, NY 😉
Q: Last great book you read?
A: Rising Strong by Brene Brown
Q: Favorite food?
A: I am currently in love with green plantains. I can make chips, “hash”, muffins, wraps and much more.
Q: Best piece of advice you’ve ever been given.
A: Life doesn’t happen to you, it happens for you.
You deserve a better doctor. Parsley Health is it.
