Portfolio

Interest

I am a very physically active person, who enjoys spending time at the YMCA.  I will play any sport, but primarily play tennis, volleyball, ultimate frisbee, and pick up games of basketball.  I enjoy playing musical intruments, mainly the bass guitar and drums.  I am very concerned with overall wellness.  To me this means not only nutritionally providing energy, but also indulging in daily physical activity.  Combining these two aspects allows both the athlete and non-athlete alike an overall better well being.

Summary

I am a meticulous disciplined Individual, with an relentless work ethic. I am a licensed massage therapist who is active in the health care industry, but would like to take my experience beyond massage therapy and into the realm of dietetics.  Currently a student at The University of Alabama, pursuing a degree in food and nutrition as to become a registered dietitian. 

            My goal is to become a leader in the field of sports nutrition and preventative healthcare. Developing nutritional and physical regimes for athletes is a passion. By providing an athlete with the correct nutritional intake, supplemented by superior stretching and strengthening programs, will allow an athlete to perform at their maximum potential. Taking these steps will not only provide an athlete with healthy daily energy, but will also reduce the risk of injury dramatically by developing physical strength and flexibility. I have significant experience working with collegiate track and field teams as a licensed massage therapist. I can personally attest to the benefits of developing proper flexibility among athletes through my work, and  wish to take the next step in becoming a registered dietitian so as to integrate both worlds.
