Hi! I am an Assistant Professor at Miami University's Regional campuses in the Department of Education and Society. I teach all things health and wellness (aka "Kinesiology" subject area).

I am a Registered Dietitian with a Masters in Nutrition Education and a Masters in Social Work. My doctorate is in Health Promotion and Education. I've always considered myself a behavioral nutritionist as I believe it is not what we KNOW but what we DO that matters most! Don't get me wrong...all the wonderful science and peer-reviewed research studies are great but they don't always amount to change.

I utilize a personal 3-E-Theory ~ "Eat Exercise and Enjoy" (TM) and the most important part of this theory is the Enjoy part because, if you are not eating the foods you enjoy and you are not moving in a way that you enjoy -- you simply won't do it long enough to reach your desired goals and to create and sustain your well-being!

SparkPeople is a great tool with lots of reliable, realistic and motivating resources and the focus on a healthy weight loss (if that is your goal) with an emphasis on non-scale successes is awesome too!

I've been sparking for nearly 10 years. This past couple of years I had seen quite a few life challenges so I had slowly become less and less consistent with my healthy lifestyle to the point where, I needed a "reset". So, I cancelled my original Spark account and created this one. Plus, I wanted to share the Spark with my coworkers at Miami University ~ It is my hope that you will join me at the "Miami University (OH) Faculty & Staff" Spark Team!

Lets share our Non-Scale Successes (NSS), our struggles, and our frustrations and lets challenge one another! And - of course - PACE ourselves... Positive Attitude Changes Everything!
