Nutrition Philosophy

Everybody has a different meaning to the word “fitness”. When someone says, “I want to be fit” to me, that means you want to be in a better physical and mental state than your current being. As a peer nutrition counselor, I am here to find that meaning and help you achieve it.

Background

I am from Reno, Nevada. I have stayed active by playing sports in high school such as, wrestling, swimming, tennis, and cross country. I still participate in IM sports here at UC Davis like soccer and volleyball. Recently, I have found great passion for weight training and nutrition. As a fourth-year Clinical Nutrition major, my life is constantly revolving around fitness and wellness. I currently work as a personal trainer at the ARC where I help clients achieve their exercise goals. I hope to become a registered dietician focused towards the community and sports nutrition.
