I earned both my bachelor's and master's degrees from The University of Missouri's Coordinated Program of Dietetics. There, I interned for Mizzou's Athletic Program and provided nutrition support for D1 athletes in various sports.
During my internship, I had the opportunity to work at The McCallum Place for Eating Disorders in St. Louis, Missouri, where I observed and participated in the treatment of both adolescent and adult eating disorders across the Residential, Partial Hospitalization and Intensive Outpatient Programs. I also was involved with their Victory Program, a specialized treatment program for athletes overcoming their eating disorders.
After college, I entered the private practice working at both Memphis Nutrition Group and Murray Nutrition, treating eating disorders full time. In December 2023, I officially opened my very own private practice,
Meant To Eat Nutrition Counseling and I am just thrilled this dream of mine has come true.

I hadn't been discharged from my outpatient eating disorder treatment as an adolescent before I knew that I wanted to be an eating disorder dietitian. I have experience first-hand what it’s like to a) have an eating disorder b) go to treatment for an eating disorder c) relapse from said eating disorder 4 years later and d) heal from my eating disorder! The relationship, guidance, and support I received from my dietitian was so powerful and meaningful. Now it just fills my heart to offer the same nurturance and care I once encountered with others.
