WHY YOU CHOOSE TO BE A NUTRITIONIST? Being a Nutrition Consultant allows me to combine my passions for teaching, eating and biology. I feel lucky to have the opportunity to help people develop a healthy relationship with food so that they can better fuel their lives.
BACKGROUND:
I am from San Diego, CA where I grew up in a large family that was always exploring the local beaches, mountains and deserts. We are a mixed bag of Dominican, Irish, and French heritage which means we have a lot of family food traditions and we love to eat! Throughout my life I have maintained an active lifestyle, but I am definitely the most happy if I am in the ocean. Before moving to Cabo, I spent three years teaching Biology, Marine Biology, and Sustainable Agriculture in Southern Maine at a public high school. While there, I also coached Girls Soccer and owned a small organic farm. Now I am happy to be living in the land of eternal sunshine where I can eat tacos, practice my Spanish, and surf year round!
