I have been interested in food and nutrition from a very early age, teaching myself to cook in grade school. My interest in nutrition started to evolve when I began competing in swimming; I began to view food as fuel and nourishment. I realized that my performance could be improved or hindered based on what I ate, and I experimented to find the right foods for training and competitions.
After college, I stopped competing in sports and started an office job. Though I was still active, working out a few times a week, I continued to eat as if I was working out several hours each day. I was miserable and constantly ached. I knew that something had to change. I once again took a hard look at my diet and lifestyle. Over the course of several years, I experimented to find the right balance, adding in some foods, eliminating others, and practicing yoga and meditation daily. My mood improved, my joints no longer ached. I felt on top of my game again. Five years later, that feeling is still going strong!
I received a MS in Nutrition and Integrative Health from Maryland University of Integrative Health and completed clinical supervision at Maryland University of Integrative Health.
