As the co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer of brüks bars it is important for me to deeply understand nutrition. What started out as a lifelong food obsession has evolved into not one, but two jobs centered around nutrition. My bachelors and masters degrees in Exercise Physiology laid the educational foundation for me in holistic human performance, but it has been the three roles I’ve held as a strength, fitness, and performance coach that have honed my skills to applicable real life expertise. As a strength coach and sport scientist for the Seattle Sounders FC everyday I work with elite athletes focusing on what will maximize their performance. Nutrition is a piece that is often overlooked and undervalued, but something I make sure to address on a daily basis with my athletes.
