My journey from journalism to health education 

A Florida native, I fell in love with journalism in fifth grade while touring the Florida Today newspaper headquarters. In high school, I led the staff of the award-winning Stanton Devil's Advocate before heading to the Northeast to develop my professional media toolkit at Rutgers University. I graduated with a BA in Journalism and Media Studies in Spring 2019.

Along the way, I developed a special interest in health and wellness thanks to my personal journey with chronic illness. Maintaining my love for writing, I shifted gears and received my MS in Health Education and Behavior from the University of Florida in Spring 2022. 

Now, I am a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES®) passionate about helping people live healthy, flourishing lives. My services include health writing, health coaching and health education. If you are interested in working together, please reach out!
