I spent the first eighteen years of my life in New York. I danced, did yoga as well as assistant taught aerial yoga and aerial dance. I then moved to Scotland to study at University of St. Andrews where I am in my third year of pursuing a biology and psychology degree. At St. Andrews, I discovered my passion for cooking using a variety of the organically grown food available to me. I continued with my fitness and discovered a love of running especially on the beach by the North Sea.
During my second year of studying, I became very ill. After many doctors and nutritionists visits, I discovered that I am celiac as well as extremely intolerant to dairy. This meant a huge lifestyle change. However, I am a strong believer that even through the hardest times, the smallest blessings arise. I realised how important what we put into our bodies is to both our mental and physical health. Although I am not currently a licensed nutritionist, I am excited to say that I will be beginning a course over the summer so that I can begin nutritional coaching.
Now, I am off to Sydney, Australia to study Health Sciences for the next six months. I plan to continue my love of eating healthy, practicing meditation as well as yoga, running, surfing and traveling. I have been fortunate to spend time in multiple countries such as: Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, the Netherlands, Belgium, France, Spain, England and Ireland. Experiencing the cultures and cuisines of these countries has truly opened my eyes to the possibilities of nutritious and delicious food.
