Health & Nutrition
I am a Registered Dietitian whose mission is to inspire others to live a happy and healthy lifestyle. In this day and age, I find that most people have a basic understanding of what they “should” do, but there is so much misinformation out there. I help people figure out their goals, what works best for them, and teach them simple steps to start changing their lives and health. I find this especially important for busy moms! They just need someone to guide them and teach them that they can have it all: be a good mom AND take better care of themselves!
What inspired you to get to where you are now?
I personally was so frustrated by all of the different diets out there, the conflicting information I was hearing, as well as what my clients were hearing. I thought, “there has to be an easier way to get healthy!” So I started on my own personal journey of simple steps and figured out what worked best for me. I was in a car accident in 2009, which left me unable to exercise for over 2 years. I felt so out of shape and gained almost 10 pounds! I decided that I wanted to feel better at each birthday than I did the year before. As each year gets closer, I get more and more inspired to improve my health; age is just a number.
What is your favorite book and why?
Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert! It inspires me! I love stories about people who decide it’s up to them and go out and change their lives when they feel down and out. No victim mentality here!
What is your favorite way to stay balanced?
Read. I love personal development books, fitness books, spiritual books, and nutrition books. It always seems like when I’m feeling off balance, someone will recommend a book that is exactly what I need at that moment to get me back in balance. My dream is to own a home with an actual library. When I’m short on time, I get books on CD from the public library and listen in my car.
What is your favorite vacation destination?
I don’t have one. I love to explore new places, see the sights, and be active. Whenever I have an opportunity to take a vacation, I always pick something new.
