PASSION FOR FOOD
My love for nutrition began to thrive in college. I knew I wanted to go into the medical field but it wasn’t until I took my first nutrition class when everything seemed to click. The dietetics profession is such a fascinating field in the sense that no matter what a person’s background may be, we will always have something in common: food. We celebrate with food, we mourn with food, we catch up with old friends over food, and we heal with food.
PASSION FOR LIFE
Physical activity and movement is so important in healing the body and mind and managing your health. I believe in joyful movement and love all things active. I have a passion for sports and grew up playing field hockey where I continued my career as a collegiate athlete and later in club sports. Now, in my spare time, you can find me outside hiking, kayaking, walking, or running. I find that doing activities that I enjoy, help with my overall well-being and connect my mental, emotional, and physical health.
I attended Merrimack College for two years and finished my undergrad at the University of Maine in Orono with a Bachelor’s in Food Science and Human Nutrition. I completed a 1200+ hour internship at Oregon State University and then had the pleasure to work for a Native American Tribe as their Lead Registered Dietitian and Diabetes Program Coordinator.
