A Registered Dietitian by trade, I have been with Highmark for almost 7 years, mostly working as a Wellness Coach engaging and empowering our members to make lasting lifestyle changes in areas of weight management, nutrition, physical activity, stress management, and smoking cessation. I currently work as a Health Strategy Implementer to assist our client groups in implementing their wellness programs. I am excited to see the rapid rate of which wellness is growing and eager to be a part of it.

Besides healthy eating, I am also passionate about sports and physical activity. In my spare time, I teach spin, Les Mills Body Pump, and yoga. I am also certified through the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America as a Certified Personal Trainer. I love being able to motivate individuals to reach their potential.

I was born and raised in Pittsburgh and feel it has a lot to offer from its fabulous sports teams to its rich cultural life to new advances towards making the city a fitter and healthier place to live! I received my Bachelors in both Nutritional Sciences and Psychology from Penn State University and furthered my education at the University of Pittsburgh with a Masters in Wellness and Human Performance. I am a Certified Diabetes Educator and currently pursuing a dual Masters in Heath Administration/Masters of Business Administration. I am married to my wonderful husband of 6 years, Michael, and we have 2 beautiful children, Emma (4) and Alex (2) who mean the world to us. I am excited to raise them on the health and wellness beliefs I am so passionate about!
