You'll most likely find me working at home in sweatpants with two fluffy Golden Retrievers at my feet - or making funny faces and singing crazy songs to my two boys in order to make them smile and laugh. My favorite meal is breakfast, and I live for the weekends when I have time to whip up a stack of scrumptious pancakes.

Professionally, I
'm a registered dietitian nutritionist which is simply a fancy way of saying that I want you to feel great and love the food you're eating. I completed Ironman Wisconsin in 2014 and as I crossed the finish line one of my first thoughts was, "If I didn't have my shit together with my nutrition, I'd never have made it through the day." It was right then and there that I knew that I needed to help other endurance athletes reach their goals and dreams. Professional. Age grouper. Weekend warrior. I'm here to serve endurance athletes of all levels who struggle with knowing what to eat, when to eat and how to eat in order in order to reach their goals. 

What's my food philosophy? It’s simple, fun and flexible. I don't eat perfectly, and I don't expect you to either.
 As an athlete myself, I fully understand the struggles that come in balancing fueling your body with the demands of everyday life. I would love nothing more than to help you gain the understanding and confidence you need to fuel your body to its fullest potential in a healthy and sustainable way.

bonus: fun extras about me

I was 14 years old when I met my husband, and I knew right away that I was going to marry him. We started out as good friends before dating as we lived about 3-1/2 hours apart. 

I'm an Ironman. In 2014, I swam 2.4 miles, biked 112 miles then ran (and walked) 26.2 miles over the course of 15 hours 15 minutes and 30 seconds at Ironman Wisconsin in Madison, WI. 

I eat and write with my left hand, and do pretty much everything else with my right hand. 

I'm a huge Star Wars, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings nerd. 

I'm an accomplished equestrian. I grew up riding and showing Quarter horses, in both Western and English disciplines. I don't currently ride, as horses are a huge time commitment (and expensive). Someday I may start up that hobby and lifestyle again. 

I went through infertility treatment in order to get pregnant with my first child. I had a diagnosis of unexplained infertility. It took two years, a small fortune and ultimately in-vitro fertilization to get pregnant. When he asks us someday where babies come from, we get to tell him the Mayo Clinic.  The second boy was a "surprise, I'm randomly cured of infertility" moment, and he'll get the traditional birds and the bees talk.
