I am a second-year graduate student at Bastyr University, WA completing a Master of Science in Nutrition with Didactic Program in Dietetics (MSN/DPD). I am a huge advocate of a non-dogmatic approach to nutrition and believe that every nutritional plan needs to be tailored to the individual's unique needs, goals, and lifestyle. I believe that a combination of science and common-sense should always prevail over rigid, one-size-fits-all diets.
My goal is to become a registered dietitian nutritionist so that I may help others overcome their barriers, reclaim their health, and learn to prosper through something intimately tied to health – their diet. No other field has such special ties to food and nutrition, and it thus becomes their duty to clear away the ambiguity holding people back and help them achieve optimal wellbeing. This is my quest.
I am also a physical culturist at heart and a personal trainer certified through the American Council on Exercise. I follow a very active and health-conscious lifestyle, always trying to walk what I talk. I do believe that inactivity has warped almost every routine task - we sit when in lecture, we sit when we eat, we sit when we watch TV, and we sit when we travel. This type of sedentary lifestyle is depriving the human race of its right to decent health, and is a leading cause of many ailments.
