In my free time I enjoy spending my time being active training for triathalons and races with my husband. I also enjoy reading books and learning new things.
Upon graduation from my internship/ masters program,I began my career in rural healthcare in Eastern North Carolina. This revealed to me the value of well-communicated nutrition education in preventing and alleviating chronic illness. I am passionate about helping people to achieve small goals toward the larger goal of optimal health.
