Lisa Peabody, RD, LMNT, is the chief clinical dietitian for Methodist Women’s Hospital.

Her passion for healthy living inspired a career path in dietetics. But when she began working with babies in the neonatal intensive care unit, she had no idea how fulfilling working with infants would be.

“There is nothing more satisfying than seeing a little 24-week-old infant who weighs less than two 2 ½ pounds grow, reach full term and get to go home,” she said. “This is a great job because you get to work with such small patients who grow and change so quickly.”

Peabody values the cohesion she witnesses daily at Methodist and believes that it’s key in providing The Meaning of Care.

“We all truly work together as a team in the NICU to provide these babies the best care possible,” she said. “Together, we ensure that they’re getting enough calories and micronutrients to grow properly and gain weight. Together, we help facilitate neurodevelopment. What an amazing journey to get to be part of.”

When she’s not helping little ones grow, Peabody enjoys reading, boating and spending time with family and friends.
