About

Food| Nutrition| Environment

I am a registered dietitian determined to improve this beautiful world by improving the lives of the people I can reach and the home we all share. My top three passions include food, health and the environment.  I am beyond excited to share these three passions with you and hope you learn something new and creative from me everyday.

Food

I was fortunate to attend culinary arts school at the age of just 16. There I learned my passion was to connect the technical skills of cooking to better the health of individuals. Check back often for healthy cooking recipes offering seasonal ingredients with punches of flavor!

Nutrition

I have a hunger to connect food with improved health and this led me to achieved my BS in Food, Nutrition and Dietetics. Following, I completed my dietetic internship and earned my MS in Nutrition and Wellness. Through this journey, I never lost my original passion of connecting health to the enjoyment and safety of food.  Check out my articles to learn the latest on the science behind nutrition and my blog posts to learn new trends in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Environment

Currently, I am a clinical research coordinator at a research company in my home of Chicago, Illinois. They have the same passions and values as I do, and that is to improve the health and environment on a global basis.  Check out my articles and blog posts on what is being done to improve our food system as well as what you can do to make a difference in your community!

In my personal life, I enjoy blogging about food and this is something I currently continue right here!  I also share my meals and cooking techniques on social media sites (check me out on YouTube or follow me on Instagram!). I love bringing my excitement and passion of food to others and get them just as excited about the flavors as well as nourishment it provides to us.   Teaching others about sustainable practices in growing our food is also very close to my heart as I have a huge love for Mother Earth.  I look forward to sharing this excitement with you!
