Who Am I?
At my core I want you to live your best life and for you to become the best version of yourself. This is why I am a nutrition and fitness enthusiast. I’ve been blogging since 2014. I owned and operated my own healthy catering company The Healthy Dish Co. until I moved to Austin, Texas to begin a new journey of running my own gym, Burn Boot Camp. I believe a workout can turn around a day and that food is the best medicine. I eat a mostly fresh foods vegetarian diet because of all the craziness that goes into foods now-a-days. I have a passion for creating healthy nutritious recipes that are never boring or bland. I read cookbooks like novels and have watched more hours of Food Network and Julia Child than I’d like to admit. I love Pancakes… and granola… carrot cake and pumpkin cookies! Apparently I’m a bit of a sweet tooth :). This is why I always make these things healthy.
I am on a journey to be happy and healthy! I was always overweight as a child. I remember being in preschool and being told to finish all my food. By kindergarten, I was trained to EAT ALL THE FOOD; and I did. I have done all sorts of diets and weight loss challenges and have always been successful. But afterwords I just gain the weight right back. While dieting I developed a nasty habit of binge eating. I would eat nonstop, past discomfort after days of restrictive eating. This unfortunately followed me into non-dieting times. I’ve been able to tame my hunger beast that has led my to binge eating and break the dieting mentality through proper nutrition and want to share everything I’ve learned who those on a similar struggle.
I focus on eating healthy, clean, and wholesome foods with little chemicals, additives, or artificial ingredients. This means I stay away from fast foods, boxed foods which are usually heavily processed, and I focus on fresh. I believe that nutrition is the core of health, fitness, and feeling good. I truly believe that most people if given the chance and the knowledge want to eat healthy but just don’t know how to go about doing that. That’s one of the reasons I became a nutrition coach and fitness chef.
In college I was a barista. I’ve always said if I won the lottery that is what I would do! After college, I became an accountant but I just didn’t have the passion for it like I do fitness and nutrition. I enjoy helping and teaching people to be the best versions of themselves through fitness and nutrition. I love helping people realize their potential and showing them that eating healthy doesn’t have to be restrictive or bland. I’ve taught group exercise classes from Zumba to boot camp, cycling, and athletic conditioning. I’m currently the owner and head trainer at Burn Boot Camp in Lakeway (Austin, TX). I still get a big smile when I think about the huge progress over 6 weeks where ladies would often be doing 20-30 pushups on their toes after not being able to do any at the beginning. So awesome!
I’m a NASM Certified Personal Trainer, a Certified Personal Fitness Chef, and a Nutrition Coach.
