Why I Chose Nutrition

by Nutrition

My goal has always been to help others live their healthiest lives. I got my first degree in Cell & Molecular Biology and was intending to go to either a medical school or physician’s assistant school.

However, after an internship at a local hospital, I realized that so many individuals were struggling with issues and comorbidities associated with nutrition.  No one discussed how they could improve their health by changing their nutrition and fitness habits. This experience fueled my passion for educating others about food, nutrition, and physical activity. I quickly began researching other career options that would allow me to help others achieve their health and fitness goals, which is what led me to pursue Nutrition.


In 2018, I moved to Knoxville, Tennessee and began my second degree in Nutrition at the University of Tennessee. Throughout this time, I loved learning about how we process food and how we can use food to fuel our bodies properly and in a healthy way. I also enjoyed learning about how food influences overall health and disease.

I have always striven to be active and eat healthy in my own life, plus I just really love food! Food is foundational to life and is what empowers our bodies to do great things. We are constantly surrounded by and hear so many different things related to food and nutrition, and quite frankly, it is so overwhelming! 

It is so easy to lose focus on the simple nature of nutrition and health. And by overcomplicating everything, we oftentimes just throw in the towel and give up.

My goal is to simplify, educate, and help you to understand food and nutrition for yourself. I want you to be informed and create consistent habits so that you are able to make healthy choices. My coaching focuses on creating sustainable, behavior-based, and lifestyle habits that will help you have long-term success.

I can’t wait to work with you and help guide you through this journey!
