I am a wife, a coach, a traveler, and a lover of the outdoors. I have a super hot husband who loves to cook, which is great, because I don’t like to cook but sure do love to eat.
I have a BS in exercise science, a master's degree in public health, and have worked in health and fitness since I was 17 - as a trainer for the past 7 years and a nutrition coach for the past 3. I love what I do more than anything and feel so incredibly grateful for the knowledge I have and the individuals I am able to work with.
Despite my involvement in fitness, I struggled for years to figure out my own nutrition. I was a vegetarian for 10 years and also experimented with Paleo, Whole 30, Keto, and just about every other fad diet you can think. I struggled to feel like my hard work in the gym was paying off; I ran, lifted weights, and ate “clean,” but was so frustrated with the lack of change I was seeing no matter how strict I was with myself.
I was eating very little during the week as I tried to fuel intense workouts with meals made of kale, almonds, and bun-less veggie burgers. By the end of the week I was left miserably sore and too tired to make it to the gym, and when the weekend came around I found myself gorging on cookies and peanut butter because I was starving and my willpower was gone. The process of tracking my macros allowed me to see beyond popular nutrition fads and fuel my body with what I needed to both look better and feel better.
For me, working out and dialing in my nutrition is about being as healthy as I can in order to live a life full of as many adventures as possible. I believe in good workout buddies, kindness, pink sugar cookies, long hikes, a 9 pm bedtime, and sharing truth and honesty with those who are also striving to be as healthy as they can be.

I am a wife, a coach, an athlete and a lover of all things food. I love to cook, especially for others & I love to eat, especially ice cream. I am also mildly obsessed with my cat.
I have a life-long love of personal wellness. I grew up playing organized sports for as long as I can remember and have always been a competitive athlete. I have worked in fitness as a CF-L2 Crossfit trainer for over 5 years and love to spend my time in the gym training competitively.
I have always led an active lifestyle but my personal journey with nutrition has been a process full of learning and lots of trial and error. When I started Crossfit, I knew I wanted to compete and was looking for a diet that would help fuel my performance. Like Kate, I experimented with many diets, from Paleo to Whole 30. Though I was eating well and feeling better, I never truly felt like I was eating to fuel my performance.
My husband started tracking his food and convinced me to tag along. Being able to really dial in on what I was eating and making sure I was eating appropriately for my goals changed everything for me and I haven't looked back since.
I seek balance in all areas of my life, so it only makes sense to do the same with my nutrition. Tracking my macros has not only helped me learn how to eat for my goals to train and compete, it has also helped me overcome a mindset of restriction and approach my nutrition with a focus on overall performance and flexibility.
For me, paying attention to my nutrition outside of the gym has made all the difference in how I perform and recover. As a coach, I want to help others work towards their goals, whatever they may be, and share my experiences along the way. I'm all about heavy squats, eating a burger at least once a week, and recognizing how food can fuel you to live your best life.

I am a dog (and cat) mom, coffee enthusiast, recreational power lifter, and avid reader of Yelp reviews. I have a BS in Community Health Education and a passion for continuing to absorb and share health-related knowledge.
I am not naturally predisposed to being physically active or thin. I spent my entire adolescence overweight. After gaining the freshman 15 (or 20?), I hit my highest weight of 215 lbs when I was 19. It took me three years to lose 75 lbs, which I did solely through nutrition.
A lot of my initial weight loss was through trial and error. I tried everything from vegetarianism to low-carb dieting to strict Paleo, and eventually found lasting success by doing my research and using evidence-based nutrition -- counting my calories, protein, and eventually all my macros. Even when I switched gears from losing weight to gaining strength and muscle mass, I have been able to use the same approach to make sure I am well-fueled while also still being happy with how my body looks.
My long-term focus on proper nutrition and physical activity makes me a feel a little bit like I’m aging in reverse. I am physically and mentally healthier in my thirties than I was in my teens and early twenties, and I feel like I am still getting better. Making good nutritional decisions allows me to do the things I love, like lifting barbells and hiking mountains, while still 100% enjoying a big rice Krispie treat or glass of wine. I’m hoping that I can share all of the lessons I’ve learned in order to help others feel good -- both in and about their bodies.
