Rae grew up in the small mountain town of Buena Vista, Colorado where she developed a passion for the outdoors and healthy living. With this passion, she graduated in 2014 with a bachelor’s in Food Science and Human Nutrition from Colorado State University. She became fascinated with the science behind how food is processed in the body and how this knowledge could be used to combat or prevent a wide variety of diseases common in our population today. Rae recently passed the registration exam for dietitians after completing 1200 hours of supervised practice with the University of Northern Colorado distance dietetic internship program. She now resides in Denver and spends her free time hiking, camping, traveling, running and creating art. Rae believes food is medicine, and enjoys helping people cultivate their own motivation to create happier, healthier lifestyles with The Better Weigh!
