Hi y’all! I’m Libby Hill, a HAES dietitian at iLiveWell Nutrition.
I graduated from UT Austin with a degree in human biology and went to work in clinical trial research, which quickly taught me my passion is in prevention and counseling toward therapeutic lifestyle changes. I returned to my alma mater to study nutrition and completed my dietetic internship at the UT Coordinated Program in Dietetics.
As a former collegiate athlete and certified personal trainer, I’m passionate about nutrition counseling for athletes suffering from eating disorders. I also have a special interest in helping individuals with medical conditions or allergies that limit their diets navigate the kitchen and promote quality of life. I strive to be the most inclusive practitioner possible and provide a safe space for people of all genders and gender identities, races, religions, and sexual orientations.
In my spare time, I wear many hats! As a former Miss Earth USA, I use my pageant title to organize coastal restoration projects and promote sustainable food systems. I love to develop and cook what I call “planet-based” meals, which use ethically sourced, sustainable ingredients to promote the health of the environment and (coincidentally) the body!
When the workday ends, you’ll likely catch me hiking, wakesurfing, volunteering for a veteran non-profit, modeling for size-inclusive brands, or loving on my rescue cat, Tubbs, who thinks he is a dog.
Get to Know Libby:
If you had a super power what would it be?
- I would love to be able to communicate with animals!
What should I expect during my initial visit with you?
- An initial visit is all about gathering information, breaking the ice, and making sure the client and dietitian are a good fit. In our first session, we will review your history, discuss your motivations for seeking nutritional counseling, and set expectations for our future time together. Counseling is a process that can take weeks or months, but this first visit is an important foundation for building mutual understanding and trust.
