My love for food kickstarted my journey to becoming a Registered Dietitian. Growing up with an immigrant mother meant that food was never wasted. And being half Italian and half Chinese, I experienced two very delicious types of cuisine. So when I got to college, studying nutrition was a natural choice. I love science and I love food, what better field is there to study?
What do you do at Baze?
I do a lot of different things at Baze, which is why I love it. My primary responsibility is one of the most important: to provide recommendations for individual customer’s daily supplement packs. I also answer all customer questions that come in and work with our marketing team on blogging and social media—we’re a collaborative company so I help out wherever I can!
The future of health that I would like to see looks like:
Accessible healthcare for everyone. I worked in community nutrition and witnessed the lack of education surrounding health promotion and disease prevention. So many health issues are preventable, but we don’t offer the right tools to make this known to the individuals who need it most.
If you could give Baze users one piece of advice, it would be:
That change over time often goes unnoticed, so be patient. Just like if you’re trying to lose weight, you won’t step on the scale one day and be 10 lbs lighter than you were the day before. So whatever your goal is with Baze, keep in mind that supplements are not a magic cure—but they’re definitely an essential piece of the puzzle!
Who or what inspires you?
Faith of the mustard seed! Mustard seeds are tiny, and quite common, but can grow up to 10-feet tall in just a few months. I love the idea that something so small can grow so much—and of course, I love that this cliche has to do with food.
What are some of your favorite hobbies?
I love cooking, exploring the outdoors by hiking or camping, and traveling—I enjoy learning about different cultures and their history so much. I also love painting—I’m not particularly good at it but find it so relaxing!
Any additional certificates or brags?
I’m also a certified personal trainer through NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine).
