Areas of Interest

My professional areas of interest include sports nutrition, disordered eating, and wellness and general nutrition. I also really enjoy researching the science of nutrition and translating that into practical, easy strategies to maximize health and wellness.

Outside of work, I enjoy cycling (both road and mountain—and jumping into the occasional race), trail running, backpacking, rock climbing, kayaking, hiking (really anything outdoors), baking, reading, and playing with dogs.
