Food is Fuel
I graduated in May 2017 from West Chester University with a Bachelor of Science in nutrition and dietetics. I was born and raised in Fort Washington Pennsylvania as the eighth of eleven children. Growing up, my family loved athletics and placed an importance on practicing a healthy lifestyle. I participated in competitive sports from a young age and found my passion for lacrosse and nutrition during high school. I followed that passion and played a collegiate career for the WCU Women’s lacrosse team. I loved demonstrating a healthy lifestyle and being a nutrition advocate for my team and I continue to want to share that lifestyle balance with other athletes. I’m excited to continue gaining knowledge and experience to further my career as a future dietitian. Outside of nutrition and athletics, I love spending time with my nieces and nephews, hiking around the trails near Philadelphia, attending concerts, and relaxing at the beach.
