I started my business in 2017 to expand my work with individuals and groups. I work on a mix of nutrition and run coaching, freelance writing, teaching yoga, and building a nonprofit. Below, you’ll find a little more info about each of these.


I coach individuals and groups for both running and nutrition. I also teach yoga, mixing mindful eating meditations with the practice. No matter how we work together, I won’t give you a diet, food or exercise rules, or any other strict measures to stick to. We’ll have a conversation to discover what nutrition and fitness habits work best for you, and build on that.

Credentials and expertise:

I am a certified registered dietitian (2009), an endurance running coach (RRCA, 2013), trained yoga teacher (2015), and freelance writer.

I’m based out of the Washington D.C. area, but work with people who live all over the US. Nutrition sessions may be in person, over the phone, or via video conference (your choice). Run coaching services are mostly virtual, but I host a monthly run group in DC for local clients.
