How would you describe your role in one sentence?
As part of our Global Food and Nutrition Affairs team, I specialize in uncovering and providing clients with insights on nutrition research, policy, consumer and influencer values, and public health movements.
What is your favorite part of your job?
Like most FoodMinders, I’m a challenge seeker. I love being intellectually challenged on a daily basis. Because we work on multiple client projects, my workload is diverse and the pace is fast. It keeps my brain busy and sharp!
What career would you choose if you had an opportunity to switch jobs for one day?
My family makes fun of me that “what I want to be when I grow up” changes on a daily basis. I love my job, but I’m easily inspired and excited by so many different career paths. I would love to be therapist, a lawyer, a doctor, a performer, a chef, a teacher, a masseuse, a meditation teacher, a researcher…the list goes on!
How do you find balance?
I meditate. It may sound goofy, but it has truly been the daily practice that keeps my head on straight, gives me some space to make wise decisions and ensure I’m treating myself and others right.
One thing people are surprised to learn about me is:
I regularly perform in musical theatre productions! It keeps my creative, artistic side alive and well.
