She also offers individual nutrition coaching sessions. She is always looking for new ways to help animals and their people.
In her spare time, she volunteers at Wake County Animal Center. She shares her home with her husband, her three dogs Willow, Dixie, and Gypsy, and her three cats Sammie, Mork, and Marley. She enjoys kayaking, snorkeling, and hiking when there is time in her busy schedule to sneak it in!
