Meet the Nutritionist: Liz Ryan

Liz is thrilled to be a part of the Dining Services team as your nutrition guidance counselor. While ensuring there are nutritious and delicious foods available every day, she would also like to help you make healthier choices. Available for one-on-one nutrition counseling (free of charge to students!), she is happy to discuss specific health needs or goals.  She will work with you to develop strategies to implement a reasonable plan that works for you and compliments your lifestyle. Throughout the year, Liz will offer workshops on topics such as general nutrition, health information, nutrition for athletes, vegetarianism, weight and obesity, heart health, organic foods and cooking. 

Liz isn't new to Pomona; she graduated with a degree in Anthropology in 1988. She went on to a career in real estate, before becoming a full-time mom.  Knowing she would want to return to the workforce, she went back to school and pursued nutrition, a field that was always of interest to her.  In 2010, she obtained her designation as a DTR (Dietetic Technician, Registered) with the state of California.
