I have officially been in this field for a decade, unofficially my whole life. When I was 22 I began my umpteenth attempt to lose weight, this journey was different not only did I have a different perspective going in, this time I approached my goal with being a healthier person instead of focusing on losing weight. For the first time in my life I was successful and have kept the weight off for 10 years. I changed my major, went for my masters, had the holy grail of opportunities doing a dual internship with the VA on local and national level. I've been lucky enough to work side-by-side with world leaders in the health industry and thrive everyday to learn something new.
