Get to know me

I’ve been told my spirit animal is an 8-month-old Golden Retriever… and I’m fine with that. Growing up, my parents thought I’d either be a gymnast or in the circus. Sadly, I did neither, although I do love a good handstand. I studied Biochemistry at Virginia Tech and earned a M.S. in Physiology & Biophysics from Georgetown University after spending over half-a-decade doing clinical research at the National Institutes of Health. Fitness, nutrition, mind-body awareness—these are all components of the dynamic world of health and medicine, I believe, and it’s my goal to show you just how happy, healthy, and successful you can be!

My family and friends give me life. Connecting with other a strong support system, finding a tribe, feeling a sense of community and giving back to it—I don’t know that there’s anything more important!


I WILL make you smile.
