In 2015, Lisa launched diaVerge Diabetes where she writes about the low-carb approach to diabetes management, cooking and travel with diabetes.

She works to empower her patients and readers with the knowledge to lose weight, get healthy, and have healthy children by following principles of traditional nutrition.
