With a strong passion for cooking, wellness, and exercise, choosing to major in nutrition just felt right. I quickly fell in love with what I was learning in the classroom and was able to utilize these skills in my own home on a daily basis. My outlook on health was forever changed for the better and I knew that this was a field I would be involved with for the rest of my life.
I was introduced to CrossFit about a year and a half ago, during nursing school, and am so thankful I decided to get over my fear and give it a go. In the gym, I have found a family and a new mindset toward working out. I’ve seen how crucial incorporating good nutrition with a workout routine is, and it’s been amazing watching people completely change their health and physique when they’re able to abide by this.
As a new registered nurse, I’ve seen the correlation between diet and illness, and I look forward to using my background to help prevent this as much as possible. Coaching people one-on-one gives me the ability to instill this message into others and help them make lifelong changes that could ultimately save their lives.
When not working at the hospital, I love going to concerts, exploring weird restaurants, and trying to plan a trip somewhere!
