As endurance athletes, we are constantly nudging up against our limits both physically and mentally - and always searching for ways to improve performance and reach higher.
Many of us also seek a lifestyle that aligns with our values as stewards for sustaining the environment we play in, compassion towards the animals we share it with, and promoting long-term health and disease prevention. What and how we eat is tightly connected to all of this.
I’m here to support you in achieving a beautiful flow between mindful performance, long term health, and environmental sustainability through good food and meaningful movement. Through endurance nutrition education and personalized coaching and consulting, my goal is to change the way you experience life as an athlete.
Growing up steeped in mountain culture and endurance athletics in the small town of Sun Valley, Idaho, I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time pushing my body to its limits on the bike, running & nordic ski trails, and the climbing gym. My love of human performance led to pursuing a degree in Integrative Physiology from the University of Colorado and eventually the realization that nutrition is absolutely critical for health and athletic performance after struggling with improper eating habits while racing as an elite road cyclist. I then co-founded a podcast on nutrition education, delivered a TEDx talk about poop, completed a master’s degree in Applied Nutrition, and started my second podcast focused on sports nutrition for endurance athletes.
I’ve become an advocate for a plant-based dietary pattern for long term health, environmental sustainability and compassion towards animals, and fueling the lives of athletes. My general philosophy is that nutrition is nuanced at the micro level but simple at the macro and that food is weaved through every aspect of our lives and impacts as athletes, humans, and members of Planet Earth. As such, we should strive to eat in a way that balances long-term nourishment with performance and environmental sustainability.
When I’m not podcasting or studying the sports nutrition literature, you can find me suffering in the mountains, meditating, or drinking fancy coffee.
In The Flow Podcast
I’m kind of obsessed with podcasting. I’ve recorded, edited, and published over 300 episodes across 4 different shows, and my latest creation is what spawned In The Flow Nutrition. In The Flow podcast is dedicated to finding flow through long form conversations on the topics I care deeply about: evidence-based nutrition for athletes, plant-based science, meditation, mountain and endurance athletic performance, the flow state, and beyond so that we may cultivate more meaningful movement and healthier, happier lives.
I share nutrition and exercise science education, talk with interesting humans, and otherwise go deep on important topics for living a fulfilling and adventurous life. Check it out on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and wherever you get your favorite podcasts.
