Beth is a Certified Nutrition Therapy Practitioner and Master Nutrition Therapist from the Nutrition Therapy Institute in Denver, Colorado. This is a nationally accredited program that consists of over 600 hours of in-depth nutrition education courses.
Beth specializes in nutrition for oncology clients, including support for cachexia, ketogenic diets, and nutritional support during treatment. Her senior research thesis was on “The Therapeutic Effects of the Ketogenic Diet for Cancer,” and she has trained under Patricia Daly, author of The Ketogenic Kitchen. Beth also has learned from or studied the works of Dominic D'Agostino, Colin Champ, Dr. Thomas Seyfried, Dr. Jockers, Peter Attia, Elain Cantin, Ellen Davis, Amy Berger, Miriam Kalamian, Phinney and Voleck, and Travis Cristofferson. Beth herself is a survivor of melanoma and used ketogenic and low-carb methods as part of her own journey back to health.
Beth spent over two decades building a career in the finance sector only to be laid off in late 2009. Earlier that same year, she was diagnosed with malignant melanoma- a type of cancer that can be fatal if left untreated. After years of reading countless health books, nutrition articles, and developing a deep passion for healing herself and others, Beth resolved to beat the cancer and pursue an education and career in holistic nutrition.
Beth resides in Salt Lake City, Utah, where she launched her private practice, Vital Nutrition for Health, in 2015. As a holistic nutritionist, mother, cancer survivor, and enthusiastic epicurean, her desire is to revolutionize how people approach their own health.
