My passion for nutrition began over a decade ago when I was competing in running, cycling, and duathlon races. I was tired of doctors telling me that my only solution to my athletic injuries was to run less millage. I wanted to get better, to perform better, to not settle for a life without the activities that I love.
I became passionate about approaching performance from a holistic perspective. I focused on a well-rounded training, nutrition for recovery and strength, and yoga for injury prevention and flexibility. And it worked.
I was vegan for a time, raw vegan for a time, and paleo for a time. They all worked. I opened my mind to a perspective of food that encompassed many areas of study and philosophies that combined the eastern healing arts and western science. I got a degree in anthropology to better understand our ancestral relationship with food.
I believe that nutrition for health and wellness, environmental sustainability, and human performance should align. I am here to bridge that gap.
Fast forward to present time, I am now a Certified Nutrition Consultant (NC), entrepreneur Yoga Teacher (RYT 200), and outdoor enthusiast. I have been working with clients 1-on-1, teaching nutrition classes, and speaking since I graduated Bauman College of Holistic Nutrition and Culinary Arts in 2015.
I specialize in performance nutrition, weight management, eating disorder recovery, and sustainable nutrition. My background includes undergraduate studies in Exercise Sport Science, Outdoor Recreation, Anthropology (Medical Anthropology and Anthropological perspectives of food), Journalism, and Environmental Philosophy.
I’m Tired of Dogma
I’ll bet you are too. I try to strip things back down to the basics and focus on real food. Above all, I try to provide the tools you need to improve your nutrition, performance, and ultimately, your entire life! Nutrition unleashed is about discovering what makes us thrive and become the best versions of ourselves.
What I Do
I work with clients one on one (both in person and virtually) to develop customized nutrition and lifestyle approaches that help them reach their health goals. I also create meal plans, teach classes. My plans are based on an individual’s biochemistry, genetics, predispositions, present conditions, body type, lifestyle, and goals. I am passionate about integrated systems and holistic wellness so I partner with functional medicine practitioners and chiropractors for clients with more serious health concerns or if they desire a complete, comprehensive approach.
