Meet the Instructors

Liz Abel, LDN, CNS, MS, MA

Liz holds two master degrees. One is in Nutrition & Integrative Health from Maryland University of Integrative Health. The other is in Communications from Temple University. Liz’s first career in communications solidified her belief that each individual needs a coach to work with them through difficult or long journeys, such as one’s return to vitality and wellness. Liz’s second career as a nutritionist provides the expertise to help her chart the path for each client’s journey. Liz started her private practice in 2012. She completed 1,000 clinical hours and passed a national board exam to earn the designation, CNS (Certified Nutritionist Specialist). This certification, in addition to a Master’s Degree in Nutrition, is necessary for state licensing as a healthcare professional. In addition to integrative nutrition, Liz completed a functional medicine certificate course in 2014 and has been teaching yoga since 2009.
