I live in the beautiful state of Colorado but I was raised in the South – Texas to be exact. For some reason, I never picked up the “y’all” thing but I definitely adapted a love for tex-mex. I moved to CO to finish up my degree in nutrition and never left. It might have had something to do with those gorgeous mountains, & it might have had something to do with the handsome man that asked me to marry him. I have the most amazing husband in the world- I know everyone says that, but I really do. He created this website for me in just about a week after I expressed interest… like I said, amazing.
I am called mom (well only one of them can talk yet, ha) by a darling little toddler and his baby brother. Those boys and their father have my entire heart.
I am a Registered Dietitian. I have a tendency to talk about nutrition whenever the chance comes up. Give me a cup of coffee and the topic of fad diets and I am good to go for hours. I have come a long way in my own journey with nutrition… from a focus on calories and a use of way too much Splenda to a much healthier, rich and moderation based mindset. I see food as a gift and I desire to help others live into a healthy relationship with food. Spark your interest? Want to know more? Just ask!
I also am an Internationally Board Certified Lactation Consultant and currently make a career out of helping mommas and babies with breastfeeding. I have a sincere love for my job, so I have a hard time remembering that it’s my career and not just for fun. My first son and I had quite a breastfeeding journey filled with struggles and triumphs, but our story only made me even more passionate about breastfeeding. I am currently breastfeeding my second little boy and am having a great experience. You may see breastfeeding come up in one or two of my posts. 😉
I am honored that you decided to stop by and I hope that you will continue to come back. I would love your input and feedback as I attempt to explore topics of everyday life, nutrition and breastfeeding in a way that does them justice.
