I am working towards my RD and masters in public health at UNC Chapel Hill’s Gillings School of Global Public Health. I believe good nutrition is one of the most powerful ways to prevent disease and is critical to achieving a state of health, both physically and mentally.I am also a registered yoga teacher (RYT-200), and believe that joyful movement and breath work complement good nutrition as a means of achieving one’s wellness goals. In my free time, I enjoy playing with my dog Sadie, practicing yoga, and trying out new recipes in the kitchen. At Kaizen Nutrition & Wellness, I am looking forward to gaining experience in integrative and functional nutrition under Jill’s direction in order to better understand and treat the root causes of disease.
I am a rising senior at North Carolina State University. I am studying Nutrition Science with a minor in Business Administration. My goal after graduation is to receive my Masters Degree and become a Registered Dietitian. My passion for Nutrition science comes from exploring diverse courses that have taught me the benefits of healing, wellness, and nourishment from the inside out. I am excited to be further developing my education of nutrition, and gain experience professionally.
I am originally from Cairo, Egypt but moved to North Carolina to study Nutrition with a minor in Psychology at NC State. I am also pursuing a personal training certification through NASM. Nutrition is truly my passion and I become more passionate about it as every day passes by. I am a firm believer that good health all starts from within and I am constantly seeking opportunities to expand my knowledge on how to properly nourish the body and mind through food, movement and mindfulness. Through my knowledge gained, I hope to have a positive impact on others.
I am currently a MPH/RD student at UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health. I am passionate about using holistic approaches in treating and preventing disease. I very much admire how the integrative approach to healthcare marries eastern and western practices, using strengths of both to best treat the client.
In my free time, I enjoy studying herbal medicine, hiking and gardening.
