I began showing interest in food and how it affects my performance on and off the field as a junior in high school. At the time, I juggled three varsity-level sports, classes, extracurricular clubs, and additional training for college lacrosse. My body was being put into overdrive. Without proper nutrition guidance from my coaches and family, I could not have managed this lifestyle type. My mom is a nutritionist and gave me the groundwork I needed during my high school years. Once I reached college, lacrosse hit a new intensity level, and so did the importance of nutrition. However, I could no longer rely on my mom and coaches to manage my nutrition plans. Maintaining the same balanced diet as I did with home-cooked meals was a struggle at Boston College because eating healthy was not easily accessible. Jerseymeals is unique because I believe I created a platform for my food and fitness journey as a female college athlete. Not only that, but it's a platform I share with my mom, who is my biggest inspiration in the kitchen and in life. Now, I make real connections with my platform with other athletes passionate about fueling their bodies to improve their performance.
