I’m a huge nutrition-science nerd with two postgraduate degrees. I’m passionate about constantly learning as well as meaningfully helping people – and as an RD, I do both! Originally I’m from the Washington, D.C., area and now live in Nashville. I’m a vinyasa yoga teacher and an avid podcast-listener. I have been a devoted Beyonce fan since before she was world-famous (think Destiny’s Child with 4 members). If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll learn a lot about nutrition for women and you’ll see a lot of my French bulldog, Cora.
