Meet Liz Patterson of ProActive Wellness Coaching:

With a belief that wellness encompasses physical and mental wellbeing, that each individual deserves a unique approach, and that often people need a guide, tools, and an accountability partner to get there, ProActive Wellness Coaching was born.  I approach your journey as a partnership: I support my clients with humility, empathy, an open mind, and a sense of humor.

Liz is a Board Certified Holistic Nutritionist, and is also a Certified Health and Wellness Coach in partnership with The Center for Nutrition Education & Research the M. Louise Fitzpatrick College of Nursing at Villanova University.

What people are saying... 

"Liz, I would just like to thank you for all of your help on my journey... Due to your knowledge you really helped me get through some hard times and since I was a little different than other clients ... you really came through for me." 

- Terri W. 

"She was motivating and helpful and very devoted to help me through the journey of weight loss. I learned much through our many sessions with her encouragement and (the) knowledge that she shared.
Liz was wonderful to work with and
I know I couldn't have been successful on my own." 
- Donna M  

I have always been driven to understand how and why things work, and to help others. Health sciences, and food science are the most fascinating, and evolved naturally into furthering my education in nutrition, exercise, and mental wellness. During my own struggles with Autoimmune Thyroid Disorder, PCOS, pregnancy losses and infertility, I developed deeper curiosity about how all of the body's systems work together. It took years of stress, doctor appointments, frustration, trial, and error (and thousands of dollars!) and research on my own before finding something that would work for my own unique situation. There were times when I felt like giving up would be so much easier! But through this journey of research and exploration, I was able to achieve and maintain healthy weight loss, improve my mindset, develop new, healthier habits, and continue to learn tools and tactics to share with my clients.   

​I have a deep commitment to growth and continuous improvement. I complete at least 20 hours quarterly of continuing education activities in order to stay on top of the latest trends and research, find ways to improve my offerings to clients, and increase my understanding of the health and wellness world. 

My husband and I settled in the Main Line suburbs of Philadelphia with our two daughters. In my "free time," I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen, volunteering in my children's schools, and with other local community organizations. My favorite things to do with the family are to explore the nature around us, listen to music, enjoy impromptu dance parties, travel, watch movies, cook and laugh. I like to watch crime drama, or what my husband lovingly refers to as my "murder shows" but also Golden Girls reruns, Hallmark holiday movies (any time of year, and often for comedic value), and most types of comedies. I can create a song or work a movie quote into any conversation.
