About Me

Hi! My name is Constance, Connie for short, and I'm so excited you are here. I'm a full time graduate student and part time teaching associate at the California State University Los Angeles where I'm studying Nutritional Science + the Coordinated Dietetic Program. My journey to nutrition first came to be through my undergraduate studies at DePaul University in Chicago, a place I consider my second home. Through falling in love with the sciences, my experience as an AFAA group fitness instructor, and my love for people, I realized that helping others improve their lives through food and their mentality surrounding food was something I would want to do for the rest of my life. Besides nutrition (I believe everyone needs hobbies) I work with kids of all ages and enjoy connecting with them through my two favorite organizations, the YMCA of The Foothills, and the American Youth Soccer Organization. My passion lies in nutrition education and I hope to work in outpatient education as an RD! Β 


  • Left my phone on the shore for a few hours to sail with my uncle and cousin and felt all kinds of freedom. Like one of those moments where you have to take photos in your own head to remember it. It really helped give me some space with some thoughts I had running around in this head of mine that will be on the blog tomorrow. Did you disconnect at all!? πŸ‘‡πŸ»
  • The most satisfying meal of the weekend with grandma's homemade pulled pork, sweet Indiana corn, and veggie sides + brownies and @valpovelvet . I couldn't ask for a more perfect day spent sailing and and surrounded by family. Father's Day isn't always easy when you miss your angles in heaven and see your loved ones missing them too but I guess that's life- bittersweet at times. I hope you all had a lovely weekend!
  • Yesterday I took myself out for a walk downtown, ate lunch at @sweetgreen while chatting to @sawyerfaith on the phone, tried a new workout at @corepoweryoga, and spent the evening with my family on their rooftop drinking wine listening to music. Might have been the most perfect day! I'm savoring these slow days with family close by because they don't come along that often when your family is spread all across the country. Wishing you a happy Father's Day weekend!
  • Just gonna leave this here. More on the blog for the Intuitive Eating series where I highlight each of the principals and help shine a practical light on them! I'm off to Reject The Diet Mentality - WHO IS WITH ME!?πŸ’ƒπŸ»
  • Hannah and I had this awesome conversation yesterday about taking photos here and NOW - not when you are x lbs lighter, not when you have accomplished more, not when you finish x diet- just now- accepting and maybe embracing your body and self JUST the way it is. To all the dietetic interns who want to be RDs already, to all the single peeps who feel the pressure to find that other human, to all the individuals who are seeking help for their mental health- YOU are doing great in this moment- just in case you forgot. πŸ“· @hannahschweissphotography
  • It's Tuesday but there's a weekend recap up! I talk about doing things alone and how that's different than being lonely (but both things are ok to be) and some things I want to accomplish for the rest of my stay here in this pretty city ✌🏻
  • I celebrated Monday and @ezzanails 's 6th month anniversary today with a fresh @cndworld wildfire mani! If you want to feel pampered and calm while receiving a mani- THIS is your place. Empowering women on both sides of the table for SURE ✌🏻
  • Monday waffles to fuel up for emails and a nice stroll! I'm a little under the weather so I'm just trying to be gentle with myself today. Have a WONDERFUL start to your week ❀️
