Doodling, like I’m not a good artist, but I can be good at doodle or drawing something small or fast.

How does your education connect to your professional career? What about personal experiences?
My background in nutritional and health behaviors/promotion has helped me to understand where patients are coming from and where they stand when working with them as well as understanding when nutritional interventions may be warranted and able to comfortably give simple easy habit changes that can be done for this.
What are you complimented on most in your work?
My positivity/happy-go-lucky-ness/interpersonal skills with patients
Who is your ideal client and why should they connect with you?
A normal person, weekend warrior, because I understand that everyone does things and keeps active in their own ways and a little support in the simple every day life can go a long way.
In your work or creative process, what concepts are sacred? Which rules have you made, which ones do you follow?
No rules are sacred, just go with the flow
