Growing up as a dancer and athlete, I’ve always been passionate about exercise, health, and food. I earned degrees in both Exercise Science and Dietetics from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and started working in the fitness industry as a group instructor and personal trainer. This led to becoming a Registered Dietitian and completing my Master’s degree in Nutrition and Physical Performance from Saint Louis University. I’ve worked as an exercise and nutrition professional in wellness centers, gyms, hospitals, schools, and clinics, and have helped clients of all ages reach their goals. Whether it’s coaching someone through an exercise program, educating athletes on nutrition, or making health a part of a client’s lifestyle, it all comes back to my main passion of motivating others!
