My love for nutrition and health began one day while purchasing a pair of running shoes. I picked up a book called “Sports Nutrition Guidebook” by Nancy Clark, a well-known sports dietitian. I was inspired and decided after reading it twice, I would pursue a career as a Registered Dietitian (RD) in the sports and wellness field. In 2010 I began my pursuit and was also a student-athlete for cross-country and track at Idaho State University. Graduating in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dietetics, I went on to Western Carolina University in Asheville, North Carolina to complete my internship hours and Master of Health Science in Nutrition degree. I have been an RD for 5 years with experience in community nutrition, clinical nutrition, private practice, and nutrition counseling, specializing in pediatrics, sports nutrition, weight management, and eating disorders. I have a huge passion for helping kids and teens eat healthy, guiding picky eaters, encouraging healthy families, and working with young athletes to achieve their dreams. I live in Pocatello, Idaho and have worked and lived in 5 different states: Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, North Carolina, and Alaska. I love running, hiking, biking, and cycling classes, as well as chasing my two cute young boys around and going on dates with my husband.
