My love affair with training and nutrition began when I decided to have a child. I was a smoker at the time and paid little attention to my health. I knew something had to change. I quit smoking, attempted to run 1 mile and changed my life.
Fast forward 10 years and everything has changed: From a fast food eating smoker to a fitness and nutrition guru. I did this all for my children and my health long term.
My education is as follows:
Doctoral Candidate-Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis
East Tennessee State University, TN
Master of Arts in Health Education and Promotion- Nutrition and Public Health
East Carolina University, Greenville, NC
Bachelor of Science in Public Health
The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Greensboro, NC
I also have the following certifications:
CF L1, CF L2
Eat to Perform Nutrition Certification
And finally, I am a busy mom of four, a competitive crossfitter, a student, a professor, a business owner, and an athlete in the best shape of my life at 43. I practice what I preach.
