Hey everyone and welcome to my new site! As much as I loved my old site I so deeply wanted a fresh start. Not that I didn't love what I shared, it was just that I felt like I had no way of organizing it to my liking and trying to think about that organization spiraled me into a bit of a panic attack.
I’ll bring back some of my most loved posts from the old blog but my hope is that with my new chapter starting as an RDN, I would have a fresh space to have that start. Also, to be honest, I literally never understood nor cared to understand Wordpress (old site) and I wanted to feel like I could understand the intricacies of my blog a bit better so I switched over to square space where I designed this myself. I did some re-branding with Morgan and I couldn’t recommend her enough for getting all your colors, fonts, and ideas in a row.
So here we are. As a little intro I thought I would tell you some things to get to know me.
My most favorite city in the US is Chicago, IL. I grew up flying to a little beach town in Indiana called Ogden Dunes to visit my grandparents as early as 6 months old and we often came to the city to see to see other members of our family. I love the lake, I love the little midwestern twang people speak with (my family included), I love Cubs games, and there’s nothing like that Chicago skyline. Later on, I attended DePaul University where I earned my BS in Health Science, was a member of the Delta Zeta soritty, and found Intuitive Eating after years of disordered eating and an eating disorder.
I eat dessert every day. Most likely it’s ice cream. If I’m not having some from the carton of Dryers French Silk then I’m probably at Jeni’s ice cream.
I HATE running but I love to walk and hike.
I’m a deep feeler and I am easily moved to tears.
I’m the type of person who has many friends but getting them all in the same place is virtually impossible. I always felt weird that I didn’t have a big friend group that just did life together but as I get older I realize that I have it so good and I wouldn’t want it any other way.
I love fancy cocktails and fancy coffee but I can also sit and enjoy some of the plan old regular stuff.
Sweet potato fries > regular fries
I attended California State University Los Angeles for graduate school where I found some kick ass friends and now, colleagues, and got to live at home with my parents. I was born and raised in Southern California where my dad’s family is from. My favorite part of LA is Echo Park.
Light roast coffee over dark, ANY DAY.
If I could pick one thing to wear the rest of my life I think it would be a jumpsuit.
So there you have it.
I hope you stick around for this new life season!
