“Growing up in Salt Lake City I like many locals, have spent a lot of my time outside. From family hikes to skiing in the mountains, I got the bug to be outside at an early age. In 2012 I started ultra running and racing. Combining running with proper nutrition I have been able to improve and stay relatively injury free through the years. After graduating with a Master's degree in Nutrition, I have started my own company called Forward Progressions LLC (www.forwardprogressions.com). I help athletes and non-athletes alike improve their health with the power of food. I'm delighted to be an ambassador for Skout Backcountry because they make the most nutritious, most natural energy bar on the market (trust me, I've seen them all).”
