My mission: to help women empower themselves through smart strength training.
To me, writing and health have always gone together. While earning both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees in journalism from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, I concentrated in health and science reporting as well as gender studies. I thought the media’s dialogue surrounding exercise, nutrition, and weight-loss did more to beat people down than build them up. I was going to change that.
Every day, I work with top researchers, fitness experts, and healthcare leaders, enjoying the best fitness schooling the world has to offer. I also have my CSCS (certified strength and conditioning specialist) certification from the National Strength and Conditioning Association, which is a fancy way of saying I know my stuff.
Give Yourself More Book
What if you stopped trying to subtract from your life (and erase your so-called “faults”), and started adding to it? What if your priority wasn’t on shrinking portions, cutting carbs, or burning calories, but giving yourself MORE of everything you need to thrive?
The answer: You would learn to live more fully, love your body, and take up the space you deserve… mentally, emotionally, and physically. You’d create healthy habits that would fill you up rather than drain you. You would lose weight and keep it off—by defying diet culture.
