I grew up a competitive distance runner starting at a young age. A hobby transitioned to a passion and I achieved many state medals and school records in middle and high school. I ran cross country and track and field on full scholarship for both the University of Richmond and Metropolitan State University. After college, I was longing for mountains and a change of pace, so I moved to Colorado and never looked back. My current athletic pursuits include: trail and mountain running/racing, cycling, and ski mountaineering. My distance running PRs include: 3000m: 10:03, 10k: 35:45, Half Marathon: 1:19, Marathon: 2:49. In my spare time, I am also the Race Director for the Aspen Valley Marathon and Half Marathon and the leader of the Trail Sisters: Roaring Fork Valley Chapter, a local women’s trail running group.
Nutrition is a key piece of health and performance that many people overlook, even though food is deeply ingrained in our lives. FlyNutrition was formed as a way to simplify all of the nutrition information out there in order to help individuals improve health and achieve performance goals. I strive to dig deeper with my clients by critically analyzing nutrition status, simplifying evidence based nutrition information, and restructuring their lifestyle habits to work towards their health goals. I use current evidence based medical nutrition therapy practices that integrate Eastern and Western nutrition principles to guide my recommendations. Every plan I formulate is personalized and made to complement the individual!
