Patrilie Hernandez, MS

Patrilie Hernandez (she/they) has over 14 years of professional experience that has shaped her understanding of health and nutrition as not only individual pursuits, but how they seamlessly intersect with our built environment, equity, and social justice. After initially working in the restaurant industry in both back and front of the house for over five years, she redirected her love for food to nutrition education, anti-hunger advocacy, and policymaking around food access and food justice. Since then, Patrilie’s work in nutrition has broadened to address the other social determinants of health that influence individual and community wellbeing. Combining her academic background in culinary arts, anthropology, nonprofit management, and nutrition, Patrilie is also the founder and CEO of Embody Lib, an organization that seeks to partner with medical, health & wellness, and educational stakeholders in applying weight-inclusive and multi-dimensional frameworks that assist in improving the health of people of the global majority. In her spare time, she likes cooking for others, looking at the moon, and spending time with her fiancé and her chihuahua.
