I am a second-year master’s student in Nutritional Sciences with an emphasis in sports nutrition. I am a dietetic intern thrilled to be working with ASPIRE clinic.
My interest and curiosity in food science and its impact on our bodies first ignited in the cultural hub of Houston, Texas. From our famous TexMex to authentic restaurants, I fell in love with nutrition.
I pursued my bachelor’s degree in dietetics at Florida State University. It was during my time there that my interest in the intersection of nutrition, sports, and mental health started to blossom. I began working at an eating disorder clinic in the area and fell in love with counseling, hosting nutrition education groups, and helping others navigate the societal pressures of diet culture.
That led me to where I am now, at the University of Georgia. I am very excited to work with you! When I am not doing research, taking classes or counseling, you can find me curled up with a good fantasy book in a coffee shop, or outside running with my friends."
