My Travel & Food Story
My love of food is a close second to my love of travel. So, it should be no surprise I am a Registered Dietitian (RD) who’s “seen more than some see in a lifetime.”
I have visited all 50 US states and 25 countries, all before I was 30 years old. As my birthday approached, my goal quickly became “50 before 30” for States explored or “30 by 30” for countries visited. As life would have it, the States won out.
I have been practicing as an RD for almost a decade in many settings, including level 2 trauma hospitals, military bases, long-term care facilities, and private practice. I have covered several specialties and enjoy diabetes, cardiovascular, and fitness/sport the most.
No matter where I go for work or for fun, you won’t find me far from a good bite to eat or exploring and thoroughly enjoying my surroundings.
How I started traveling
I started traveling as a kid with my family. We were fortunate to take a family vacation every year, usually in the summer. Both my parents wanted me and my brothers to see the world, not just our neighborhood. We went from coast to coast over the years with some crazy stories I hope to tell. Those summer days are long gone but my love of traveling never stopped!
