I have always had a passion for nutrition and fitness. Growing up I knew I wanted to be a nutritionist and work in the health industry. Being a dancer for most of my life spurred on this desire. After graduating from Purdue University, I became a Certified Personal Trainer with the American College of Sports Medicine. I then completed my Dietetic Internship and Master’s degree in Nutrition at North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC. I became a Registered Dietitian and now work as a Public Health Nutritionist at the Guilford County WIC Program in North Carolina. I absolutely love it and enjoy getting to work with women, infants, and children on a daily basis. I am an advocate for maternal and pediatric nutrition as I believe this is one of the most important times for nutrition in a person/child’s life.
I live in North Carolina with my husband Kevin and Goldendoodle puppy named Henry! When I’m not working I am enjoying time with my husband, traveling to see my family in Indiana, exercising, drinking coffee and eating at my favorite restaurants! And blogging of course!
I created this blog because I believe that life is meant to be lived, and to be lived fully. In order to live a full life I believe that we need our health. I think living fully means enjoying moments with friends and family, relishing in good food, and adventuring throughout the world. I want people to reach their full potential in life and to feel good doing it. This blog serves as a resource to communicate my passions, and bring awareness to others about healthy living. It doesn’t have to be hard and that is why I am here. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy.
