Health and wellness were not always my passions. In fact, I had unhealthy habits for most of my life. It wasn’t until my mom was diagnosed with colon cancer that I started making better decisions. The oncologist was straight forward with us: years of eating badly and inactivity greatly contributed to the cancer. As a family, we cut out processed foods and began eating clean. It was incredible how much better my mom could cope with the illness and treatment by just eating healthier. From then on, I knew I wanted to help others to be good to their bodies and make healthy choices!
I’m a southern girl, raised and educated! I graduated from Clemson University in Food Science and Human Nutrition. I was fortunate to have my first job out of college at Bee Healthy as the nutritionist. I’m currently working on becoming a Certified Personal Trainer. Since exercise is such a big part of wellness, I want to be equipped to help others in all areas.
I want to coach people to drop the “diet” and make lifestyle changes that will help them the rest of their lives. Diets do work initially, but do not help in the long-run and will often leave you frustrated and hungry. Food and exercise are great medicine and tools that can help you unlock your body’s full potential and prevent health problems down the road. I am so excited to be living out my dreams and making the world a healthier place!
