I was born and raised in the mountains of Idaho, competing as a cyclist and cross country skier before earning a degree in Integrative Physiology from the University of Colorado with certificates in public health and plant-based nutrition, and eventually a master's degree in Applied Nutrition. With over 13 years of training and racing experience in cycling, skiing, and trail running, I’m a passionate mountain athlete. However, my diet didn’t always meet the needs of my endurance pursuits. After struggling with health issues and poor performance in 2014, I adopted a plant-based diet and in many ways overhauled my lifestyle as a human. This catalyzed a complete shift in understanding health and performance, and stimulated a deep fascination with evidence-based nutrition.
As a sports nutritionist, TEDx speaker, and host of the In The Flow podcast, I specialize in nutrition education and coaching for endurance athletes seeking to shift towards a more plant-based way of eating for health, environmental and ethical considerations, and athletic performance. In The Flow Nutrition is designed to integrate the tenets of evidence-based nutrition for athletic performance and long term health with an athlete’s activity and training goals.
