From cooking homemade, nutritious food to playing many competitive sports, living a healthy lifestyle has been a way of life for me since childhood. My passion for taking care of my body by eating well and staying active led me to pursue a career in nutrition. After receiving my bachelor’s degree in Dietetics from Nicholls State University, I became a Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist (RDN) and a Licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist (LDN), as well as obtained my Adult Weight Management Certification. Furthermore, I have recently completed a 100-hour Baptiste PowerYoga teacher training.

My previous work experience in hospital dietary management and community/retail nutrition provided me with a new opportunity of growth as co-owner of Root2Rise. In addition to managing the business, supporting the café and juice bar, and teaching yoga classes, I also offer nutrition consulting and plan to expand our nutrition education outreach. I also bring my passion for living a healthy lifestyle to my home where my greatest supporters—my husband, Philip and our 7-year-old daughter, Lily—help me stay focused on what is truly important. My personal mission, for my family, my community, and myself is to make a healthy lifestyle not only possible, but also easy and enjoyable!
