As an educator and dietitian, my role centers on the question of, “what is the purpose of having good health?” and I believe the answer is to maximize the freedom there is to life. I desire that problems or struggles with health be minimized or better managed to let you pursue life to the fullest.
Education of individuals, whether they are patients, students, dietetic interns, or the general population gives me direction and drive. Whatever is related to the wellness and longevity of life in individuals is something I am interested in teaching and discussing. For this reason, I make it my mission to help everyone understand and apply the principles of nutritional science, and provide them with the right resources to make good decisions.
I received my bachelor’s degree in dietetics at Brigham Young University and then completed my master’s degree and dietetic internship at CSU-Long Beach.
In addition to cooking, teaching, writing, and staying up to date on current events related to health, I love archery, weight lifting, spending time with my wife, and arguing about which Batman comic needs to be brought next to the big screen.
