My grown up background is in strategic communication for good causes. And distance running.
I came to Carolina in a career leap to focus on my passion for nutrition, understand more about how the built environment impacts health and how to reduce disparities starting with the littlest ones.
I have an extremely dry sense of humor, fueled by a conservative upbringing and political background.
As a Northwest native, great coffee, fusion cuisine and a good glass of wine are my down home comforts.
I'm allergic to cows. All the dairies, all the taco meats, and all the cheeseburgers. Vegetables are my jam, so it isn't so bad.
I love NPR, nerdy pop culture things like TED Talks, and bedtime stories from The Moth.
I am always down for travel, whether it's a spontaneous road trip or somewhere abroad.
I do my best to surround myself with folks who are friendly, considerate and loving toward their friends, family and strangers.
My loved ones are those who I not only get along with naturally, but people who also broaden my perspective, move and challenge me, and who I learn from every day.
