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?
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!
