I’m driven by a few things. First, making a difference in the lives of others has always been paramount to me. Second, I love to cook. I’m always looking for new and healthy alternatives to the status quo of fast food and refined sugar. Third, I love learning about anatomy, physiology, and ultimately what leads us to make the choices we do, in life and in our relationships.
I set out to explore my passions when I began college and later completed my bachelors degree in psychology. Upon completing my degree I entered massage school in an attempt to create a holistic experience between mind and body. I feel that if enough people begin to make the connection between how they use their bodies and their emotional and physical well being, we would all be winning in the game of life. I later chose to pursue graduate school and obtained my masters degree in Marriage, Family and Child Therapy.
I believe that what we choose to put in our bodies and how we choose to spend our time affects the quantity and quality of our life. This does not mean sacrificing fun, enjoyment, or pleasure along the way. I do not view myself as someone on the other side of you, but rather a partner collaborating with you to accomplish your goals.
When I’m not creating something crazy and healthy in the kitchen, I enjoy doing as much as I can outdoors, laughing with loved ones, traveling, and taking photos of my dogs, Summit, and Everest.
