I have over ten years experience in the nutrition field working with clients at all stages of the life cycle. My education background is a Bachelor of Science with an emphasis on Dietetics from ASU, Dietetic Internship through Utah State University and my graduate studies are through Utah State University with a specialization in Strategic Value Creation.
This is actually my second career. After the birth of my last child I was told that my risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes was very high (4 pregnancies with Gestational Diabetes). My goal is to prove the statistics wrong. I have been along the same journey as many of my clients. I am open about my struggles as a recovering emotional eater. The last few years I've had unbalanced hormones due to age, weight gain around my waist and a shift in muscle and fat. Using my knowledge I have built a strong foundation so that I can be my best at every point in my life. I pass this knowledge to my clients.
I understand that adapting new health habits is difficult, and barriers often need to be addressed. As I work with clients my goal is to provide the tools and support to change your view on nutrition, so that it becomes part of who you are and your lifestyle. I strongly believe that if you practice healthy habits, you will be able to obtain a healthy lifestyle.
I have over 10 years of training success. I started my journey the same as our clients sitting on the couch then progressing along my journey to now finishing races with personal records. Feedback from clients are that I can do it all. My training includes certificates in Personal Training, Group Fitness, Barre, Les Mills, HIGH Fitness and Hiit.
My goal is to constantly learn, passing that knowledge onto my clients. Joy Lynn and I are confident that together we can hit your goals and beyond.
