My goal in life is to integrate the fields of Psychology and Sports Nutrition. I believe they go hand in hand. For good mental health to be obtained good nutrition is a must and vice versa. As a native of Biloxi, Mississippi I follow the national updates regarding the quickly growing rates of both obesity and depression in the state of Mississippi. I find it extremely interesting that there is a correlation between the two issues. Having dealt with obesity, depression, PTSD, and increased symptoms of depression caused from consistent weight gain myself, I have a special place in my heart for people dealing with those same issues, especially adolescents. While I want to share my theories and findings with everyone in the world I want to first start spreading my knowledge around Mississippi so that the citizens of Mississippi can lead the rest of the country and world by example. I plan to use my knowledge of fitness, psychology, and sports nutrition, as well as my compassion for people dealing with mental health and obesity issues, to better the world one Mississippian at a time.
