Food can nourish, heal, and energize us. I learned this first hand when I played tennis
competitively in high school. Focusing on proper nutrition helped me recover from a long day of
practice as well as energized me for upcoming tennis matches. My knowledge of nutrition
increased after completing an introductory nutrition course during my sophomore year of
college. I fell in love with the subject and knew I wanted to pursue it as a profession, so I added
it as a second major. I then completed a Master in Public Health degree to further my nutrition
knowledge. My areas of expertise include weight management, community nutrition, and
nutrition education.

As a recent graduate, I’m passionate about helping people achieve their food and nutrition goals
including weight loss and healthy lifestyle changes. I will work alongside clients to help them
achieve their goals because I believe it is important for people to be in charge of their lives and
the choices they make. My role is to help guide them and provide them with the tools and
resources they need to succeed both now and for the rest of their lives.
