After successfully earning my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist credential from the National Strength and Conditioning Association in 2008, I immediately began working as a personal trainer for the YMCA in my hometown of Auburn, Washington. Since that time, I have continued to acquire the skills and education necessary to help health and wellness professionals improve their businesses, and individuals of varying backgrounds achieve positive and sustainable changes in health, body composition, and performance.
In 2010, I graduated from the Arizona School of Health Sciences with a Master of Science in Human Movement, and corrective exercise and performance enhancement certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. In 2013, I earned my second Bachelor’s Degree in Dietetics from the University of Northern Colorado, and shortly thereafter became registered as a Dietetic Technician, as well as certified by Precision Nutrition as a Level 1 and 2 Coach. I also hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing from the University of Washington, and a Master of Business Administration in Information Systems from City University of Renton.
In 2017, I formed Targeted Nutrition Technologies to address the unique challenges commonly encountered by both health and wellness professionals seeking to grow their businesses, and by clients desiring meaningful changes in health, body composition, and performance. My educational background and professional experience provides me with not only a special understanding of the particular business needs of personal trainers, strength coaches, and allied healthcare professionals, but also an uncommon ability to help them build a strong online presence through the successful implementation of custom websites and cutting edge nutrition and exercise software. In addition to helping industry experts create superior businesses, I’m also able to help healthy, active, and motivated individuals improve their lifestyles by making food and nutrition suggestions, developing sample menus, sharing educational material from recognized groups, and assisting in the setting of meaningful goals.
It is important to note however, that while I do indeed offer dietitian designed meal plans for special populations, I do not, under any circumstances, diagnose medical conditions or disordered eating, nor do I prescribe medical nutrition therapy to treat either one. If you are in need of medical nutrition therapy, please seek out a Registered Dietitian or an appropriately qualified healthcare provider (i.e. M.D., D.O., ARNP, etc.).
I look forward to helping personal trainers, strength coaches, and allied healthcare professionals enhance their respective businesses, and to teaching individual clients how to overcome limiting factors and improve their lives through proper nutrition, intelligent training, and evidence-based behavioral change techniques.

Thank you for all your help, I’m not sure how I could ever repay you."
"This program has given me many practical and empowering tools to aid me in meeting my wellness goals. I am now eating more mindfully and healthfully, and I’m exercising and sleeping more consistently. Best of all, I’m living my life with so much more enthusiasm and drive. Thank you, Targeted Nutrition Technologies!"
“I really appreciated the program’s gradual progression. Each week’s focus was addressed in enough depth to not overwhelm while incorporating the previous lessons. The writing was especially entertaining as well as engaging. All in all, it increased my awareness of what my diet should look like and how I could make improvements when making choices at the grocery store or dining out.”
