My next guest interview is a longtime friend of mine who I have gotten to experience her passion for education and nutrition first hand. We have known each other since high school; we met at a local grocery store we both worked at. We had a lot of fun and her older sister is the godmother for my youngest daughter!
She is a new mother to TWIN boys as well as the owner of her own business. She is a dietitian and excels in helping mothers and their families get their health and lives back through her simple dietary guidelines. I have personally used her services and she is very thorough and really cares about your goals and your lifestyle. Even the perfect plan won’t work if you won’t do it! 😏
I hope you enjoy her interview as much as I did!
- What is your passion?
- “ I guess you could say that I have many passions. Passion for knowledge, passion for helping others, passion for food. Helping people, especially women, find what works for them to be a healthier version of themselves is what matters to me. “
- How did you realize that?
- “I’m not sure if there was a pivotal moment where I realized what my passion was, but the more I learned about the power that food has on our health, the more I was drawn to the subject. “
- What have you done/are you doing to live out your passion?
- “This past year I decided to start my practice where I could dedicate my time to helping women and women with children on making simple, realistic changes to their meals without restricting or taking away their favorite foods. I firmly believe that a happy momma makes for a happy family.”
- What attracts you to this passion?
- “What attracts me most about my passion for food and nutrition is that we all have a special relationship with food. Yes, food is a source of fuel, but it’s also so much more than that. Food is there during celebrations, gatherings, and special moments. And as a dietitian, I’m able to help people understand that we can enjoy food in a healthy way.”
- If you could go back and give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?
- “Hmmm… I would tell myself to stop obsessing over the idea of being perfect. Enjoy the journey and don’t be afraid to make mistakes.”
- What would you say to someone who doesn’t know what their passion is yet about how to find it?
- “My advice to someone that doesn’t know what their passion is would be to just explore your likes and interests. Dig into why you enjoy doing certain things and let the rest happen naturally. “
I am a first-generation high school and college graduate. I received my bachelor’s and master’s at Texas State and completed my dietetic degree at Missouri State University. I grew up with a large family of four sisters and two brothers, and they have always encouraged me to pursue my dreams.
