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, authentic lives. I offer one-on-one health coaching and Internal Family Systems sessions. I also regularly post wellness content on my social media pages, so be sure to follow! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you'd like to connect or work together.
