My-pic-768x1024 Get to Know a Heart Guide: Sarah

How long have you been a Heart Guide?

I started in January 2017, so about 16 months.

Tell us a little bit about yourself!

I’m a licensed nutritionist, which is what drew me to the heart-healthy mission of the HHCM! I have three grade school-aged kids and have been married for almost 14 years. I also maintain a food and nutrition blog called A Love Letter to Food.

What’s your favorite thing about working at the HHCM?

I enjoy many things about my role at the museum, but I especially like managing our social media.

Tell us something you think is really interesting about the human heart.

I think it’s fascinating that the heart keeps oxygenated blood separate from de-oxygenated blood–it’s such an efficient system.

What’s your favorite fruit or vegetable?

Blueberries!

What about your favorite way to be active?

Running and yoga are two of my favorites.

A fun fact about you:

I used to teach German at ASU and my family spent last summer in Germany.

Anything else you want to tell us?

I love being a part of the mission of the American Heart Association to help Americans live heart-healthy lives!
