I’m a writer, marketing professional, and most recently a licensed nutritionist.
My goal is to provide actionable, science-backed information that can be used to set goals for healthier living. Taking behavior change one step at a time is my specialty. I meet individuals where they are on their wellness journey and encourage healthy progress not perfection.
Making healthy lifestyle choices doesn’t always come easy to me either. A native of Minnesota, my childhood diet was state-fair inspired (fried, potato-based and/or covered in cheese). I still enjoy those foods, but now I follow a plant-forward, Mediterranean-inspired diet. I make room for my favorite indulgences: chocolate and pizza. I know behavior change takes time—from research and personal experience.
I also know that striving for 100 burns me out. I told NBC Nightly News all about how my fitness tracker gave me anxiety.
For me, healthy living means regular vegetable consumption, date nights, and not pushing myself to become a long-distance runner. I work with my strengths and weaknesses—and yours, too.
I am passionate about using inclusive language and responsible research and reporting practices because everyone deserves access to high-quality information.
To your health!
