Truth be told, my relationship with food has fallen on every end of the spectrum throughout my life. In 2013 I began a three-year battle with anorexia nervosa and during my freshman year of college, frequent binge-eating episodes led me to gain almost thirty pounds by the end of my first semester. I felt completely out of control of my weight and knew I had to make some big changes but the mere thought of “where do I start” only overwhelmed me into tears. I started out on a personal journey to become the healthiest version of myself and in the following months lost the 30 pounds I gained plus over 20 more.
My weight-loss journey not only brought to light my love for Nutrition but, inspired me to turn this passion into a fulfilling career dedicated towards helping others. I received my Nutrition Coach Certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and am currently enrolled in the Didactic Program at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
