My vision is for all children to grow up forming a healthy and happy relationship with food. My work involves developing strategies to help create better food and drink policies where children are concerned. I believe children, at the very least, deserve a chance at a healthy future.
Before I graduated top of my class with a Master in Health Education at the University of Utah, I had a successful career in hospitality management. However, after finding two of my children and I have serious food allergies, I discovered how the right nutrition can improve every aspect of life. Navigating this experience became a catalyst and I knew I had another calling: nutrition education. I dove deep into academia and surfaced with certifications in health education, weight management, and global health. I specialized in childhood obesity prevention, interned in community health engagement, and studied child nutrition policy in Southeast Asia with the United Nations.
Now everyday is a new opportunity for me to help children, and that reminds me why I traded in ‘work’ to pursue my passion. So, here I am leading the good food fight, one meal at a time.
