Certified Nutritionist
Washington State

In the state of Washington, a Certified Nutritionist is a qualification covered by most insurance plans. CNs must have a master’s-level degree in nutrition, as well as an extensive background in medical nutrition therapy, preventative health, and human physiology. They are required to maintain credentials with continuing education annually, as well as to stay current on nutritional research.

I appreciate sound nutrition information when researching for my own health, so I avoid fads and take an evidence based approach when building nutrition and lifestyle wellness with my clients. Combined with an integrative medical approach at Rebel Med NW, my clients benefit from some of the best and diverse forms of holistic healthcare out there. This allows me to focus on providing sustainable and healthy behavioral treatment plans to my clients.

BIOGRAPHY

Her undergraduate degree is in fine art photography from Seattle University, but after realizing a passion for learning about food and nutrition, she decided to return to school to get formal training in Nutrition. She quickly took a liking to science and biology when training for her nutritional therapy certification and then for a Master’s in Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport. Her clinical focus uses therapeutic diets, advanced nutrition testing, research, behavior change and goal setting to help restore balance with food allergies/sensitivities, digestive conditions, metabolic imbalance, immune conditions, and neurological concerns.

FINDING HER WAY HERE

Lisa has been a full time Office Manager and Billing Specialist for Rebel Med NW for several years while she was getting her Master’s in Nutrition and Nutrition Certification. She has always had a unique way of being able to listen to the people that come through our doors with patience and understanding, and without judgement. This makes it a natural transition for her to implement Positive Motivation and Patient Coaching into her nutritional coaching care. Patients love Lisa’s friendliness and ability to be present to their needs.

PHILOSOPHY

Lisa believes in fostering her client’s autonomy and motivation to help them move forward in achieving their desired health, wellness, and digestive resilience.  She has a compassionate and down-to-earth approach that helps patients implement therapeutic plans and strategies to restore nutritional health and promote optimal wellness. 

HOME & HOBBIES

When she isn’t trying to stay up-to-date on the ever evolving world of nutrition science, Lisa can be found in her makeshift photo darkroom, in a kickboxing or bootcamp class, in a hammock next to one of Washington’s amazing lakes, or most likely playing on the floor with her dogs.

TESTIMONIALS

I spent years of my life sick and trying to find a doctor who could help me. None of them listened and it only resulted in them treating symptoms and loading me full of prescription drugs. When I found Dr. Schule it was literally life changing. I feel better every day, I’m losing weight, I have more energy, and I’m living life again. Dr. Schule looks at the big picture, and takes the time to listen. I cannot praise her enough.
