Eileen Conneely, GoodLife Physical Therapy’s Registered Dietitian, became interested in health and nutrition in high school. She knew she wanted to pursue a career in nutrition to educate and help others.
Eileen earned her bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from the University of Dayton and completed her dietetic internship at Indiana University School of Medicine. She began her career in corporate wellness at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois. Eileen helped create and maintain their internal wellness department from the Chicago office. Her primary mission was to keep the Blue Cross Blue Shield employees healthy.
In 2008 while working as a Registered Dietitian at a fitness center, Eileen became a certified personal trainer. This way she could better serve her clients, as fitness and nutrition go hand in hand. Since then, Eileen has become a certified cycling instructor, certified women’s fitness specialist and enjoys teaching other fitness classes. She also presents corporate wellness seminars, sees patients at a local children’s clinic and volunteers as a driver for The American Cancer Society.
Eileen currently resides in Tinley Park with her husband and 3 beautiful children. She spends most of her free time chauffeuring them to and from their various activities. Some fun facts include: her favorite foods are peanut butter and anything sweet. Eileen also loves shopping, family time and vacationing in Destin, FL.
