After having spent my high school career playing multiple varsity sports, I felt lost without an active activity entering Temple. Soon after starting school, a friend introduced me to the world of running and I was immediately hooked! Running has since become part of my daily routine.
I have always had a deep interest and passion in maintaining a healthy diet and educating myself on nutrition. I make it a priority to eat a plant based diet with as much fruits and vegetables from local Philadelphia vendors as possible. I’m always looking for new recipes and ideas to incorporate nutritious foods into my meals. Additionally, I love trying and exploring vegetarian restaurants in the city; there’s almost too many options to choose from!

This student professional organization focuses on how business can make a positive impact on the planet and people, while still making a profit. Our weekly meetings consist of various guest speakers from socially aware companies, volunteer opportunities and planning for different sustainable events.
