Who I Am and What I Do
PROFESSIONAL HOLISTIC HEALTH COACH
My story is a long one, so I'll stick to the parts that are important to your health. (You can read the rest of it in my blog)
I'm a 44 year old State licensed optician who worked for America's largest retail as an Optical Manager. They flew me to Arkansas to be part of a team they called "the round table," 13 Vision center managers there to help make policy for the rest of the 3500.
After 20 years of opticianry, I left to pursue a career in health coaching.
What made me decide to make that change? Well, here's where it gets really interesting.
Around the same time, my husband was diagnosed with high cholesterol. This was on top of his Diabetes and Blood pressure issues, and he was on medication for all 3! We sought out ways to make lifestyle changes so he could get off medications. We watched a movie called Forks Over Knives and he said he wanted to try a plant-based diet for 30 days.
So we did. And in that 30 days, his bad cholesterol went from 131 down to 85!!! We stayed on that way of eating and it's been almost 3 years. He's down over 60 lbs, and I'm down almost 35.
He is OFF all of his medications!!! (with his doctor's supervision of course) His diabetes is GONE. I decided to get some training under my belt so I could help others do the same. I'm a graduate of T Colin Campbell's school of plant based nutrition (Cornell University), and I'm also a graduate of the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
And now I'm here to help YOU.
I have very satisfied clientele who have been able to establish healthier routines in eating, sleeping and changing careers. We've been able to get rid of acid reflux that was so bad it was causing panic attacks, we've been able to get off medications that have been used for over 15 years.
I have extensive knowledge in child nutrition and diet, and I can help you if your child is overweight and/or diabetic.
I'm happy to say that I am really good at standing beside you while we make good changes happen!

"Liz, you show a level of true interest. You encourage and support others to grow and become healthy and happy. You've brought joy to our family. We are incredibly lucky to have Elizabeth Keplar in our lives. She's helped our child and our family to grow. So thankful for her!"

"I'm more open to trying new foods and not be afraid of vegan :)- from the red meat eater"
"I eat oatmeal now"
"A1c dropped from 6.8 to 5.2. No Lisinopril. Cholesterol dropped from 131 to 85. 238 lbs now 173."
Liz has been a wonderful gift to my family. She has opened my eyes to so many important facts about nutrition. It is because of her that I choose to feed my child following a Whole foods plant based diet, and he is thriving. When I follow her guidance, I feel more energy, am more productive, and am able to be a better mom for my son. She is so knowledgeable and is able to provide guidance in a non-threatening, non-judgmental manner. I would highly recommend her as a health coach to anyone.
