I have always had a love of sports and learning. I started my university career at
Dalhousie where I received my Bachelor of Commerce with a major in marketing.
From there I had developed a keen interest in nutrition and went on to become a

QMJHL teams, pro athletes, hospitals all across Nova Scotia, and the Halifax

excited for the opportunity to provide nutrition education with the amazing team
at Pro Edge.
