I am a graduate of Iowa State University where I completed a B.S. in Dietetics and a B.A. in Music. I am currently a dietetic intern at the Minneapolis VA and am on the path to becoming a Registered Dietitian who specializes in clinical dietetics and sports nutrition. Fitness is one of my greatest passions in life and I view health as the ultimate gift. From the beginning, it has been my goal to promote the sport of powerlifting to women across the country and dispel myths and misconceptions that may be associated with heavy lifting. I aim to be an advocate for women by educating them about the benefits of strength training and eating a balanced diet through competing in the sport and working as a future registered dietitian. In my spare time, I perform as a classical musician and enjoy cooking, shopping and engaging in meaningful conversations with friends.
