About Me

I developed a love for running in high school, and Devils Tower, Wyoming was my training ground.  Pounding those dirt trails led me to Omaha to run cross country and track as a UNO Mav while earning a degree in Dietetics.  I completed my accredited Dietetic internship at the VA San Diego Healthcare System in La Jolla.  After that amazing year of California dreamin’, I returned to Omaha and started my career in community health.  I pursued sports nutrition as a side hustle, earning my certification as a Certified Sports Dietitian in 2012, and eventually started my own business in sports nutrition and weight loss counseling in 2019.  I recently took a full-time position as the State Health Assessment and State Health Improvement Plan Manager for the Department of Health and Human Services.  My professional goal has always been to be effective, and I am so excited to have this opportunity to work at the state level on health improvements for the citizens of Nebraska.  I also have been privileged to teach Diet and Nutrition for Oral Health each spring semester since 2013 to the freshman Dental students at Creighton University.

I love life, and I am passionate to help everyone feel and be their best. Whatever you are working for, I believe health and wellness play a major part in your success, and I have the skills, knowledge, and experience to make sure you achieve your goals.

My favorite sweet treat is homemade chocolate chip cookies so fresh from the oven that they almost fall apart when I eat them and the chocolate chips are still gooey.

I hate spiders.

I ran/hiked down the South Rim of the Grand Canyon to the Colorado River and back up in 7.5 hours!

After seeing many pictures of Le Mont-Saint-Michel in France, I actually made it there… in… person.
