Biography

With a diverse background that includes marketing, sales, financial analysis, and, in May 2013, a masters in nutrition, I have a unique perspective that provides a solid foundation in business with nutritional knowledge. 

Within the last five years, the motto of “not words, but deeds,” became a driving force in changing my career path into the health care field. I was motivated by two main factors. The U.S. obesity rate is staggering and leads to many preventable health risks. Secondly, after the early loss of a family member from type 2 diabetes I wanted to do something. Now I can. My goal is to combine my nutritional knowledge and my prior management experience to empower others to make positive lifestyle changes.
