I grew up in a very big east coast Italian family so food was always a big part of my life. I had to develop a new relationship with food as I got older because Italian families enjoy indulging in rich and flavorful foods. I thought what better way to do that by going to culinary school and focusing on nutrition and dietetics. I studied culinary nutrition at Johnson & Wales, completed my masters at Texas Women's University, and a dietetic internship at The University of Oklahoma, BOOMER SOONER! I've been a dietitian for five years and have worked extensively with individuals to get them to their goals whether it be weight loss, muscle building, or increasing their performance in the gym.
During my internship at OU, I needed something to keep me active, hold me accountable, and assist me in making friends in a healthy environment. I walked into Exile and fell in love! I walked in knowing nothing about Crossfit and quickly caught on. Years later and with a significant amount of experience in nutrition counseling, I thought what better way to spend my time than helping my gym family meet their nutrition goals and teach them my passion, food, along the way! It has now become my favorite part of going to Exile.
I love seeing people reach their body goals and teaching them how much proper nutrition can impact those goals. Seeing people create healthy habits and creating an overall better quality of life along the way is truly so amazing to be part of!
