“I have spent the past several years working towards becoming an expert on fitness and nutrition. My journey began as a novice CrossFit competitor in 2012, and from there, I fell in love with fitness and I knew I wanted to learn as much as I could. I spent two solid years as a 63kg Olympic weightlifter and as a lifter, it is so important to keep my diet in check so that I can be as competitive as possible while maintaining my weight class. This is what finally led me to learn more about nutrition and how I can use it to my advantage, and eventually, share it with all of you so you can use it to your advantage too!

As a new mom, my interest in nutrition and (postpartum) fitness is growing even more! Now my focus is on how to not only fuel my own body, but to make sure that I am making enough “muscle milk” for my babe 😉 I’m slowly but surely getting back into weightlifting with a whole new respect for the sport and my own nutrition. I am so lucky that I am able to use these personal experiences to help all of our FFF members!”
