My interest in health and wellness began when I was 19 and diagnosed with a chronic condition. I decided then and there that I wanted to devote my life to helping others prevent disease so they didn’t have to experience the pain that I suffered during and after my diagnosis. I left a well-paying job to go back to school to learn about how I can prevent disease and help others do the same.
Ultimately, I received my Doctorate in Public Health with emphases in disease prevention and nutrition. I am also a Registered Dietitian, a Certified Health Fitness Specialist (personal trainer), and a Certified Health Education Specialist. When I am not writing blogs or creating wellness programs, I spend my time as a university professor and as a Registered Dietitian for the UCR campus.
I truly hope you find this information motivates and inspires you.
To your health,
