Why do you teach at NCE?
I wanted to teach a community class because I’m passionate about helping people overcome their most frustrating food problems. And what I found working with clients one-on-one, is that for many, their pain points with food always come back to meal planning. So as a health professional who teaches people what to eat, I also want to teach you how to eat to feel like your best self.
If you weren’t teaching a class, what class would you be taking?
If I wasn’t teaching this semester, I would absolutely take “Online Self-Publishing”. I’d love to publish several recipe or nutrition-related ebooks!
What’s one thing we would be surprised to learn about you?
One thing you might be surprised to learn about me is that I am also a Lifestyle Coach for the Diabetes Prevention Program. I love helping people live happier, healthier lives!
When you aren’t teaching a class with us, how are you spending your time?
When I’m not teaching “Master Meal Planning,” I am taking yoga at the Y, checking out a new restaurant in town, or blogging. I’m so fortunate that my passion for food is not only a hobby, but my career.
What’s one thing that transplants would be surprised to know about the city?
One thing transplants would be surprised to know about Nashville is that we are actually very diverse. Take a trip down Nolensville and you’ll find Ethiopian food, Kurdish cuisine, Thai restaurants, Turkish delights, Mexican ice cream shops… what more can your stomach want!?
