I love to run, sprint, jump, and throw my body weight around. I live to continue to push myself and try new things. I believe in moving and feeling like an athlete. I love to nurse my body through healthful eating, provided (mostly by) Mother Nature. I am fascinated by nutrition and the emerging science in the field. I love to learn new things and challenge my mind. I am fascinated by how mental health affects our wellbeing. I love to engage in conversations with other people and gain both a real understanding and a different perspective from them.
I can talk health and wellness all day, but my greatest enjoyment in life comes from helping other people find love in taking care of themselves – mind, body, and soul.
My fitness journey started at a young age. Growing up, I played as many sports as I could handle: everything from swimming and basketball to tennis and volleyball. However, it wasn’t until my final season of tennis officially ended in high school that I really decided to take my health into my own hands. I knew going off to college, quite literally no one would do it for you. I didn’t know, however, my journey to health would lead me down an unexpected path: finding my purpose.
I got into distance running and ran my first half-marathon (now I’ve completed four and am training for my first marathon in the fall)! I began taking Tabata Bootcamp classes and became a Certified Personal Trainer and Group Exercise Instructor so that I could start to teach classes, too. I became fascinated in fueling my body and mind properly – and my love for the fitness/wellness scene was ignited. Since then, I haven’t looked back.
Now, as a rising junior at Boston University, I hope to continue to share these passions with a wider audience.
I enjoy long walks down the aisles at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. I believe that avocados should be their own food group. My favorite quote, by Yoda, is “Do or do not, there is no try.” When I’m not in workout clothes or athleisure wear, you can find me exploring Boston, brunching, creating new Spotify playlists, watching a True Crime documentary, listening to a podcast, reading through cookbooks, or searching for a dog to pet.
