I am a Sports Dietitian, Mind Body Eating Coach, entrepreneur, dog momma, food lover and adventure seeker.
As a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics I understand how food plays an important role in fueling our body to perform at our best; however, I quickly realized the profound impact of the pressures of sport and diet culture have on a athletes relationship with food and body which can often impact performance in both sport and life.
Too often I have seen athletes with disordered eating patterns and taking extreme diet approaches thinking it will benefit performance and support body composition changes, but in reality leads to low energy, delayed recovery, increased risk for injury and decreased performance.
To help athletes in a more holistic way I pursued a certification to become a Mind Body Eating Coach from the Institute of the Psychology of Eating.
With my unique combination of sports nutrition and eating psychology I am able to support athletes with practical fueling strategies for performance based on nutrition science, while also recognizing the importance of the mind body connection to support nourishment for life.
I am a total foodie and my love for food and desire to help others is what inspired my desire to become a Dietitian!
