Welcome! I am a registered dietitian (RD), marathoner, yoga lover and kitchen experimenter. I hail from the Southwest and would do almost anything for a batch of freshly roasted green chiles. I have a B.S. in Nutrition from Penn State University, and have now lived on the East Coast for 8+ years (with a one-year hiatus that involved two cross-country moves and a few gigs in Colorado).
I live in Washington DC, not only the nation’s capital but also one of its healthiest cities.
I primarily work as a Coach & Program Manager for Wellness Corporate Solutions, and also as a consultant for dietitians in social media. I absolutely love my job – we work hard to help people make healthy lifestyle changes, and we practice what we preach. I come here a few days a week to get my own thoughts, actions and recipe-experiments up on the web.
Running is a huge part of my life; I raced my first half-marathon during the spring semester of my senior year (college), and have never looked back. It has created a network of friends and family in DC, and taken me around the states for races, events & explorations.
Lululemon and the Denver fitness world set me up with yoga; my arms and hips don’t know how they ever got by without the mat. I love a good hour+ of muscle-testing poses, and will try just about any type. I don’t think Bikram will ever top my favorites list, but I am learning to appreciate the sweat-inducing hot stuff.
Thanks to lululemon I’m also an avid goal-setter, and have a list set all the time (daily, weekly, monthly, etc). And thanks to that mindset, I’ve ventured into cycling, climbing, hiking, new cities & work opportunities, and an infinite wanderlust.
“In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”
The posts below explain things in a little bit more detail, and a lot more pictures.
