However, after her first clinical rotation she realized that was not the right discipline. Lisa then became a massage therapist and worked in chiropractic clinics and spas for 11 years. While taking an introductory course to nutrition, Lisa knew she had found her calling in the healthcare industry. Lisa initially had interest in working with eating disorders during graduate school while she was shadowing a private practice eating disorder dietitian.
