    Fitness to me is your overall state of being. So often we mistake it for either physical or mental toughness when it is truly a balance of both. When we improve in one area, there's a good chance we will improve in the other. My clients succeed because of the communication I expect of them and of myself. The better we can communicate, the more effective our sessions will be!

    in my free time I like to
    Spend time with my son, daughter, and wife! I also enjoy watching sports on tv (especially football and basketball) and like to unwind by playing video games.

    Credentials

    • MS, RD, LDN

    I am excited to have the opportunity to work with Fitness Together doing what I do best…helping you reach your health goals! Whether you want to lose weight or gain weight, change your body composition, or leverage nutrition to manage a condition like diabetes or high cholesterol, I am here for you. My style of nutrition coaching is centered around teaching you the skills needed to achieve your goals based on three foundations; evidence-based nutrition, increased physical activity, and changing behavioral patterns and negative self-talk. It is not a diet, rather, it is a systematic, sustainable way of eating that creates vibrant health and lasting lifestyle changes. Helping you learn new skills that incorporate healthy behaviors is my passion and I can’t wait to work with you! Before becoming an RD, I worked as an ACSM-certified personal trainer for over 10 years, so I can attest to the power of exercise and how effective it can be, especially when paired with good nutrition!

    in my free time I like to
    I love to cook and eat delicious food (my favorite food is peanut butter, especially when paired with dark chocolate.) As a matter of fact, I graduated from culinary school! I am an avid exerciser and enjoy weight training as well as cardio (I have run exactly one marathon). I enjoy being outdoors, and my favorite season is spring in Tennessee because I love all the flowers.
