About the Author

Elizabeth Scala, MSN/MBA is a Registered Nurse, Health Coach, Reiki Practitioner, writer, and speaker who owns Living Sublime Wellness: Health and Wellness Coaching, a business focused on guiding nurses to create space for balance and self-care in their lives.
She attended the University of Delaware for her undergraduate degrees; a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. During college she enjoyed learning about psychology theory, working at and attending the sporting events offered by the Campus Box Office, and seeing live music with friends. After college, Elizabeth went to work at the Johns Hopkins Hospital as a psychiatric nurse on one of the most acute inpatient units in the state. During that time she received her Master's degrees in Business and Nursing.
Due to burn out and compassion fatigue, Elizabeth left the hospital and took a job at a Wellness Center, running an exercise program for physician referred exercisers. What she enjoyed most about this role was guiding people back into healthy habits and helping her clients identify their true motivators. During her time at the gym, she completed her training as a health and wellness coach.
Elizabeth was asked to come back to Hopkins, where she now works part-time as a Clinical Nurse Research Fellow. Returning to the hospital, where she interacts with patients in many different areas and nurses of various roles, has awakened her true calling... to guide nurses to be healthy, happy, and whole so they can provide the best care to their patients on a daily basis.
Her company mission, which is to "Partner with my clients to improve their holistic health, well-being, and happiness" is a life intention Coach Scala lives each day by.
Helping people, building relationships, and educating on holistic well-being has always been a part of Elizabeth's life. Growing up she played numerous sports, participated in multiple types of dance, and was a leader and inspiration through community service and volunteering.
Elizabeth is set to prove her passion by helping nurses create balance through healthier nutrition, regular exercise, spirituality practices, and fulfilling relationships.
Coach Scala believes through the increased health and well-being of nurses the patients they care for will live and learn a healthier lifestyle. She values holistic health and well-being and believes the whole person needs to be taken care of in order to feel balance and peace.
