Sarah In Her Own Words

Every coach is “the” coach for someone or something. What’s your jam?

I’m a functional medicine nutritionist that loves helping people improve their lives through diet and lifestyle.

Tell us about your fitness journey!

I’ve always been extremely active and have played sports pretty much non-stop since I was 5. I eventually focused on volleyball and played a couple of years for my university. After moving to Florida, I finally tried CrossFit and fell in love! I CrossFit regularly, play a lot of sand and grass volleyball, and love yoga

Let’s play local tour guide! If someone has 24 hours in St. Pete, where are you sending them?

Morning coffee from Black Crow followed by a walk through Northshore park. Brunch at Stella’s or Uptown Eats. Beach time at Pass-a-Grille. Downtown adventuring with dinner at Lolita’s or Brick and Mortar. Live jazz music at Ruby’s Elixir.

At a party, where can you be found?

Usually playing with whatever dog I find! Otherwise, you’ll find me looking awkward in the corner (introvert life).

What topics do you geek out on?

Nutrition and holistic living (obviously), sand/grass volleyball, Stephen King novels, true crime podcasts and shows, my dogs, and good food!

And your family?

The majority of my family still lives in Tennessee. My boyfriend and I have been together for over 4 years and I have two beautiful girl-dogs (Sheba and Joplin).

You’re a lifelong learner. What are you up to right now?

I have a Bachelor in Chemical Engineering and a Master in Human Nutrition. I am currently working on getting certified as a Certified Nutrition Specialist (CNS) and plan to get future functional medicine certifications after that.

What else would you like to add?

For anyone interested in medical nutrition therapy, I’d be so happy to work with you on your health journey. And even if we never work together, I hope our 9 Nutrition posts can be helpful and help you live your healthiest and best lives!
