Elena DiPerri MS, CNS, LN
Administator, Continued Learning
Elena DiPerri is a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) and Licensed Nutritionist (LN) and holds a Master of Science in Human Nutrition. After years of seeking help for her own hormonal imbalance, Elena found the answer in nutrition.
After 10 years of working in the restaurant industry, she left her position as a pastry baker at Facebook Headquarters to join the fitness industry. During this time, she knew she was meant for more. This lead her to enroll in the University of Bridgeports Master of Science in Human Nutrition Program.
Since completing the program in 2021, she began obtaining her clinical hours required for her CNS and LN and founded Heal Holistic Nutrition. Since, Elena has helped dozens of individuals heal their guts and balance their hormones. Most importantly, she learned about the type of practitioner she wants to be – someone that is food inclusive and does not shame her clients, but rather educates and empowers them.
Elena currently resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, with her partner, 2 dogs (Brie and Bleu, after the cheeses), and cat, Phoebe (after Phoebe Buffay). When she is not healing guts and hormones, you can find her listening to music, trying new restaurants, or enjoying the outdoors!
