Immunologist, professional trainer and life coach all rolled into one
I’ve always had a natural interest in learning how to cultivate health in this crazy world we live in. My professional education started off at Colby College in Waterville, ME where I majored in Molecular and Cellular Biology. After graduating in 2004, I moved to Boston where I worked at The Children’s Hospital on Muscular Dystrophy and basic muscle biology.
I loved the work but wanted to focus my career on a field that impacted all of human health, specifically Immunology. As a result I enrolled in Dartmouth Medical School’s PhD program in 2006 and graduated in 2011 with a PhD in Immunology and Microbiology. From there, I accepted a post-doctoral fellowship at the National Institute of Health in Bethesda, MD studying the interaction between the bacteria that reside within our gut and on our skin and the immune system (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=Belkaid+Y+Molloy). More recently, I accepted a position at a small biotech company back in the Dartmouth College area working on novel therapies for cancer and autoimmune diseases (www.ImmuNext.com).
Along with my education in science, I’ve tried to develop a knowledge of how to use nutrition and physical training to develop health, longevity and human performance. I began coaching in 2008 with several New Hampshire Crossfit affilates as well as the Dartmouth Women’s Rugby team. With each move that I’ve made, I’ve found a gym to work with including Crossfit Balance in Washington, D.C. (www.crossfitbalance.com), Crossfit RVC in Lebanon, NH (www.crossfitrvc.com) and The Fort Crossfit in Hampstead, NH (http://thefortcrossfit.com/).
Recently, I’ve begun to work as a nutritional and lifestyle coach with people on a one-on-one basis. It has been an incredibly rewarding experience to see people improve their health and nutrition and really take control of their lives.
