Exercise has always been an important part of my life. I was involved in soccer from a very early age and it allowed me to play at the collegiate level. Playing Division 1 soccer is where my interest in nutrition started. Fueling my body properly was critical to support my daily practices and strength & conditioning sessions. I followed my passion and earned my B.S. in Exercise Science. The nutrition courses, coupled with my desire to learn everything I could about human performance resulted in me continuing my education. I am currently working towards an M.S. in Health, Exercise, and Sports Science at The Citadel. Additionally I am a WAG Certified Nutrition Coach, CrossFit Level 2 Trainer and coach at PopFit Kids. I have seen firsthand the positive changes the correct diet and exercise have on people’s lives and want to share my knowledge and passion with others. I am a firm believer that one should do what they can to make the world around them a better place; through Smarter Athlete Fitness and Nutrition, I believe I can positively impact people’s mental and physical health, which in part will allow them to be their best selves and in turn positively impact the world.
