Liz Cook RD

Registered Dietitian

Schedule a Consult

Liz has been reading nutrition labels since she learned how to read. Growing up with severe peanut and tree nut allergies she learned that it’s important to know what you are putting into your body. She made her first big lifestyle change as a freshman in high school, when she decided to become a vegetarian. However, it wasn’t until she took a food class in Italy as part of a study abroad program in college that it clicked in her mind that she wanted to make food and nutrition her career. Liz graduated from Penn State University in 2015 with a bachelor's degree in Nutrition, as well as a bachelor's degree in Marketing. She completed her dietetic internship with Aramark in Philadelphia, and her master's degree at Northeastern University shortly after. 

Before joining OnPoint, Liz worked with students and student athletes at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix. She loved the ability to help young adults shape their future habits! Before GCU, Liz spent a few years working in corporate wellness and doing virtual nutrition counseling.  

Liz is currently living in Pittsburgh after spending a few years living in Scottsdale, Arizona and the previous years living in Old City, Philadelphia. Liz is happiest when teaching spin classes, trying new, healthy recipes, and taking long walks with her husband and bernedoodle.

What do you enjoy most about being a nutritionist/dietitian?

I absolutely love to see changes over time. Watching those I work with transform their lives, starting with their eating habits, is incredibly rewarding to me. I also love building relationships with the people I am working with! 

What questions do clients most commonly ask you? What is your answer?

Should I cut out (insert food here)? Should I try keto, intermittent fasting, or the next big trend? My answer is always, let’s get a little bit more info. Why do you want to do that? How does that food or that way of eating make you feel? Do you think that cutting out that food or  eating that way it’s sustainable for you? If you’re approaching these eating changes because they are truly making you feel better and you see yourself doing it for a long time, it’s something to explore. However, if you’re just interested because you saw it on Instagram or heard it on a podcast, it’s likely not the best idea for you! 

If you could give clients one piece of advice in improving their health/nutrition, what would it be?

Listen to your body! Let’s try to work with it, not against it.  

Ivy Eliff

Nutritionist

Schedule a Consult

Ivy's interest in food and nutrition started at a very young age; her father owned a health food store in the late '70's. Living in a healthy household much different from most of her friends, Ivy considers her family's "different" lifestyle a blessing. In high school, Ivy attended a guest lecture opening her eyes to the immense world of nutrition. Intrigued, she moved on to attend the West Chester University of Pennsylvania, earning a bachelor's degree in Nutrition and Dietetics with a minor in Contemplative Studies in 2016.

Ivy's career began working for the USDA funded supplemental food program known as WIC. Her counseling focused on working one on one with low-income, nutritionally at-risk pregnant and postpartum women and children under five years old. Before WIC, Ivy spent years in the foodservice industry where she learned skills and techniques to use in her own kitchen. She spends her free time whipping up new and exciting dishes, practicing yoga, lifting weights in the gym, and reading with a warm cup of coffee in hand.

Ivy believes that to feel your very best, you must strive for balance in all aspects of life. Nothing brings her more joy than seeing her clients discover how to nourish their bodies and create lasting lifelong habits!

Specialties

What do you enjoy most about being a nutritionist/dietitian?

Being a nutritionist gives me the ability to share my knowledge with those in need. Food is essential for daily life. When you learn what foods you should be eating to fuel your body to the best ability, the possibilities are endless.

What questions do clients most commonly ask you? What is your answer?

What foods should I avoid? To this, I always say, stay as far away from processed foods as you can. Of course, it's extremely difficult to avoid these products at all costs. The more conscious choices we make to consume products with the most natural ingredients, the more our bodies will thank us.

If you could give clients one piece of advice in improving their health/nutrition, what would it be?

Stop eating out and spend more time experimenting in your own kitchen! Life has become so fast paced that we often forget how essential cooking at home is for our health. Constantly eating out or grabbing a quick freezer meal causes us to not only overeat, but to consume foods oblivious as to what is in them or where those ingredients came from.

Registered Dietitian

Cathy has been a dietitian for 16 years and worked at Main Line Health for many years prior to coming to OnPoint Nutrition.

She completed her internship with ARAMARK in Philadelphia and passed her RD exam in December of 2004.

Cathy's interest in Nutrition first began when she discovered the joy of cooking and sharing food with family and friends. She started cooking her way through Ina Garten's cookbooks after college and considers her approach of using the best quality ingredients to be the precedent to her preference for using fresh, local, and organic ingredients whenever possible in the kitchen. Cathy believes in a diet free lifestyle and believes you can enjoy all your favorite foods in moderation.

Some of her happiest times are spent hiking in the Wissahickon, gardening, and spending time with her family every summer at the Jersey Shore.

Specialties

Cooking, celiac disease, Crohn's disease, diverticulitis, family wellness and meal planning, heart disease, HTN, pregnancy and lactation nutrition, renal disease, vegan and vegetarian diets, weight management

What do you enjoy most about being a nutritionist/dietitian?

I really enjoy helping people realize the power of food and how improving our relationship with it can so profoundly affect everything from mood to energy levels. I also love discussing meal prep and cooking strategies with clients!

What questions do clients most commonly ask you? What is your answer?

How do you eat so healthy, all the time? I couldn't possibly live without (X) food?! The answer to this is twofold. First, I don't eat perfectly all the time. I live and teach a diet free lifestyle. I enjoy many foods that aren't considered the most nutritious because I find pleasure eating them and have learned how to fit them into a healthy lifestyle. Secondly, I honestly really enjoy the healthy foods I eat! If you aren't used to eating a variety of nutritious foods, allow yourself the time for your tastes to adjust and evolve; this is an important part of changing your relationship with food.

If you could give clients one piece of advice in improving their health/nutrition, what would it be?

Stop comparing yourself to others! Your own best self is unique to you and the path to your healthiest you is a personal journey.

Morgan's passion for nutrition started at a young age as she was interested in her family's health and helped her diabetic dad by influencing her family's eating habits. She later completed her Bachelor's Degree in Nutrition and Dietetics and Dietetic Internship from Marywood University in 2013 and Masters of Human Sciences (Public Health) from the University of Alabama in 2015.

Specialties

Cardiac disease, celiac disease, diabetes, diverticulitis, emotional eating, family and meal planning, gut health, IBS, nutrient deficiencies, nutrition for fitness and sports, thyroid disorders, vegetarian and vegan diets, weight management, women’s health

What do you enjoy most about being a nutritionist/dietitian?

I love teaching clients how to improve their health while having a great relationship with foods. I also love educating clients about why we are choosing and recommending the foods we are instead of following the latest trends.

What questions do clients most commonly ask you? What is your answer?

What is the fastest way to get to my long term goal? I encourage clients to enjoy the journey and set small achievable goals to get to their long term goal. We can celebrate mini success stories as we grow to that long term success. That way the goals are long lasting instead of a "quick fix".

If you could give clients one piece of advice in improving their health/nutrition, what would it be?

We give ourselves too many rules when it comes to dieting and nutrition that we lose the excitement. When we have a good relationship with our food, our health and nutrition will improve which will help us enjoy this journey more.

Specialties

FODMAP, food allergies, gut health, IBS, intuitive eating, mindfulness, relationship with food, weight management

What do you enjoy most about being a nutritionist/dietitian?

I love that I can guide clients in reaching their goals as well as helping them redefine their relationship with food. Strict diets and restriction can be detrimental. Instead, let's work towards a balanced, enjoyable plan that works for you and your lifestyle! 

What questions do clients most commonly ask you? What is your answer?

So many times, I am asked, "what foods do I need to cut out of my diet"? My motto is... let's take the focus off cutting foods out, and instead add foods in! Prioritizing foods that help you meet your goals and adding them into your diet is so much more of an effective and positive approach.

If you could give clients one piece of advice in improving their health/nutrition, what would it be?

Don't be so hard on yourself! Nutrition can be confusing these days. Working to make consistent and positive changes to your diet, lifestyle, and relationship with food will go a long way.

What do you enjoy most about being a nutritionist/dietitian?

What I enjoy most about being a registered dietitian is teaching individuals the importance of nutrition and taking care of their bodies in a healthy and achievable way. I love cultivating a positive learning environment where people can learn how to have a healthy relationship with food. 

What questions do clients most commonly ask you? What is your answer?

I commonly get asked about fad diets and if they actually work. My answer is always what works for one person may not work for another. The issue with fad diets is that they aren’t realistic on a long term basis. Achievable lifestyle changes are what I always preach! 

If you could give clients one piece of advice in improving their health/nutrition, what would it be?

Everything fits in moderation! Coming from a dietitian who is also a huge foodie, I don’t think you should have to cut out a food you love just because it may not be the best nutrition wise.

Shannon Gray MS, RDN, LDN

Registered Dietitian

Schedule a Consult

Shannon has had a strong connection with food since she was a student-athlete at West Chester University. During her college career studying nutrition and dietetics while also playing softball, she realized the importance of using food to fuel and remain healthy. Her connection with food then developed during her time at Ohio University completing her dietetic internship and Masters Degree in Nutrition Sciences. As Shannon was struggling with chronic cystic acne, she realized the importance of using food to heal her body from the inside out. After adopting a whole foods plant-based lifestyle, her body started to heal and she is now living with clear skin, a clear mind, and a strong relationship with food. Shannon also holds a certificate in Plant Based Nutrition from Cornell University. Her expertise in plant based nutrition, built on personal experience and evidence based research, supports her passion to empower clients to include more plants, whole foods and habit change to support their health goals.

Before joining the OnPoint team, Shannon worked as a clinical dietitian in long-term care and rehabilitation centers in the surrounding Philadelphia area. She is passionate about helping others on their health journey and realizes the struggles, frustrations, and doubts that may come with changing lifestyle habits; however, she recognizes the reward and happiness it brings to people's lives. She wants to be the support and empowerment for people on their very own health journey.

Shannon lives in Philadelphia and loves exploring the city and trying new restaurants. She loves to garden, take walks, exercise, cook, travel, and spend time with her friends and family.

Specialties

Acne/skin problems, cardiac disease, diabetes type 1 and 2, plant-based nutrition certificate through eCornell, vegetarian and vegan diets, weight management, whole food plant-based lifestyle

What do you enjoy most about being a nutritionist/dietitian?

As a dietitian, I talk about food a lot. I love that food can mean so many different things for different people. Everyone can relate to food and I enjoy building relationships based on this concept. Food has the power to help people with so many health conditions, and I love being able to share my knowledge about food to help people every day.

What questions do clients most commonly ask you? What is your answer?

Clients most commonly ask me "what foods do I need to cut out," or "what is the fastest way I can lose weight?" My answer is first looking at what foods can you bring in to your diet to help, then look at what do you comfortable on reducing and why. It is so important to understand the "why" so that you feel comfortable making your own decisions while keeping in mind your health goals. Because we are working on lifestyle changes rather than "diets," any food can still fit into your lifestyle. Since this is a health journey where we work together to create a healthy lifestyle, most commonly weight loss is a positive side effect. Be patient and trust the process!

If you could give clients one piece of advice in improving their health/nutrition, what would it be?

Improving your health and nutrition will bring you many rewards in so many aspects of your life that you may not have even realized! Keep an open mind and focus on small positive changes to lead you to your ultimate goals. It can be hard sometimes but know that you will have a strong support system to keep you positive and motivated!

Brooke’s love for nutrition began in high school, when she wanted to learn how to better fuel her body for dance and performing in shows on stage. Brooke graduated from the University of Delaware in 2017 with a Bachelor's degree in Nutrition and Dietetics and a minor in Health and Wellness. After graduation, she completed the University of Delaware’s Dietetic Internship Program, and passed her RD exam in May of 2018. 

Before working for OnPoint, Brooke worked as a retail dietitian in the grocery store setting, where she taught cooking classes for kids and adults, performed healthy culinary demonstrations for store customers, and led nutrition-focused supermarket tours.

Specialties

Body image, cardiac disease, eating disorder recovery, gestational diabetes, intuitive eating, mindfulness, PCOS, prenatal nutrition, vegan and vegetarian diets, weight management, women's health

What do you enjoy most about being a nutritionist/dietitian?

Being a Registered Dietitian involves so much more than telling people what they should and shouldn’t eat. It requires getting to know someone’s unique needs and discovering how they can enhance their health and well-being in a way that is right for them. The thing I love most is being able to help my clients learn how to let go of strict food rules and crazy diets, and actually discover the satisfaction and joy in eating again! 

What questions do clients most commonly ask you? What is your answer?

“Are carbs bad for you?” - Thanks to all of the fad diets these days, there’s a lot of misinformation about carbohydrates out there. I teach clients that carbs are not the enemy; in fact, they’re actually really important for your body and brain! I encourage clients to incorporate fiber-rich carb sources more often (such as fruits, veggies, whole grains, & beans/legumes) because they supply your body with longer lasting energy and fullness than foods with lots of added sugar. 

If you could give clients one piece of advice in improving their health/nutrition, what would it be?

Stop eliminating entire food groups (unless you have a specific food allergy)! There is not one food that can make or break your health on it’s own. Both kale AND cupcakes can exist together in a balanced diet!

What do you enjoy most about being a nutritionist/dietitian?

I love teaching people that living healthfully can be easy and even enjoyable! I also enjoying showing people the power they have over their own wellbeing, and that they can successfully stay healthy without following a trendy fad diet or living a life of endless yo-yo dieting. When working with clients, I try to incorporate mindfulness and intuitive eating techniques to help build those long term sustainable habits that we are all looking for.

What questions do clients most commonly ask you? What is your answer?

I often get asked about what time people should stop eating or if it's okay to eat certain foods at night. My answer is this: If you are hungry at night you should eat, especially if you haven't eaten enough in the day. If you find yourself habitually snacking after the point of fullness at night, there are certainly other things for us to look at besides food (a.k.a stress, emotional eating, sleep, etc.). Additionally, eating too close to bedtime can disrupt your sleep and even cause GERD. So, if there's a way to fill up with nutritious foods during the day rather than at night, it's best to plan ahead for that!

If you could give clients one piece of advice in improving their health/nutrition, what would it be?

Make friends with your body. It will be your greatest ally when making changes that will benefit your health in the long run, plus it’s where you’ll be living for the rest of your life.

Being able to help people to feel good in their own skin! It's so gratifying to watch clients transform their lives and gain more and more confidence in themselves and achieve greater comfortability with their relationship with food. 

What questions do clients most commonly ask you? What is your answer?

What foods should I eat to lose weight? And my answer is that nutrition is not a one-size-fits-all and it should be individualized to each person's unique situation and preferences. There is room for all foods in your diet in moderation. And there is a lot of power in taking ownership of your choices and knowing how to portion food to best fit your needs.

What do you enjoy most about being a nutritionist/dietitian?

My favorite part about being a dietitian is being able to help people reach their health goals. I love the feeling when clients have that "aha!" moment where everything clicks. It's also really special to see clients who struggle with Gastrointestinal disorders and other chronic conditions finally see relief from their symptoms. Knowing what it's like to be on the other side of that journey, I can understand what it's like to finally feel connected to your body and in control of something that has caused you pain for so long. In all, it's just extremely rewarding to see how sharing my knowledge of food and nutrition with clients can help them feel motivated and empowered to take control of their health and reach their goals.

What questions do clients most commonly ask you? What is your answer?

I get a lot of questions about fad diets- do they work, which one is the best, etc. My answer always will be that there is no short cut to weight loss. Fad diets commonly restrict certain food groups or force people to change their eating habits so dramatically that it is just not feasible long term. This is usually why people have a hard time keeping weight off after they try a fad diet. The only way to achieve true long-lasting results is to make realistic lifestyle changes.

If you could give clients one piece of advice in improving their health/nutrition, what would it be?

One simple piece of advice I would give clients to improve their health and nutrition is to eat more fruits and vegetables. Fruits and vegetables have a wide variety of health benefits and are crucial for your body to perform its necessary functions. Also, if you are eating more fruits and vegetables, you will inherently be eating less foods that may not be as beneficial to your health.
