I spent 5 years serving in the United States Coast Guard. Being active and fit was a major part of being in the military. Once I left it I had to find ways to maintain the same active and healthy lifestyle. I started a journey to lose weigh and be more active. This journey has led me to embark on nursing school so that I could better understand how to body works. During my time in nursing school has truly changed the way I have approached health, nutrition and overall fitness.
