I have my bachelors and masters degrees both from the University of Utah. My BS is in Exercise Physiology with two minors in Math and Chemistry, and a MS in Foods and Nutrition. I am a part time Registered Dietitian Nutritionist and Certified Functional Medicine practitioner. I love counseling people to help improve their health with nutrition, exercise, and balanced lifestyle principles.
I think that education is at a crossroads. I would like to help keep schools focused on academics, create policies that support teachers, helping them teach the subjects they love and help create policies at the State level that support Utah values.
