// THE MOMENT //
The moment you knew you wanted to start a CHAARG chapter at your university…
I knew that I wanted to start a CHAARG chapter at The University of Akron when I realized the amazing impact that this empowering, positive, + motivational community has on girls who are involved in CHAARG. My friend from The Ohio State University told me about CHAARG last year. I was so interested in this organization + it sounded like so much fun! As she was telling me about CHAARG, she also added that I would be perfect to be an ambassador + start a chapter at Akron. This comment left me flattered, but also so inspired + determined to make that idea a reality. I fell in love with CHAARG after I found the website + social media accounts. I thought to myself that this organization was too good to be true! CHAARG is the perfect way to learn to enjoy living a healthy lifestyle, make friends on a huge campus, have fun, + be positive — all through the stress of college!
By the time I knew I wanted to start a chapter at Akron, it was too late for Spring, so I sent an email to Sarah expressing my enthusiasm to start a chapter in the Fall + I patiently waited for the Ambassador application form to be available. Finally, after the application process, the nerves, the excitement, + the anticipation … I found out that my dream has come true: CHAARG is coming to Akron + I am the ambassador!
My passion for health + fitness was ignited when… I’ve always enjoyed being active, playing sports + you could always find me playing outside with my brothers. However, my passion for health + fitness was ignited in High School after I realized the benefits on my attitude + overall health from eating healthy + exercising. I started doing Insanity by BeachBody with Shaun T + although it was tough, I loved pushing myself to the limit! Then began learning about nutrition + loved fueling my body with food that was going to benefit my health. Now, I love combining both fitness + health and sharing my knowledge to inspire + motivate others. CHAARG is an amazing opportunity for me to share my passion for health + fitness as well as give me the experience I will need to teach + inspire others as a Registered Dietitian.

Favorite Indulgence… My favorite indulgence is homemade popcorn while watching The Bachelor with my mom + sisters.

If you could work out with anyone dead or alive, what workout would you do + who would you work out with? If you could work out with anyone dead or alive, what workout would you do + who would you work out with? I would love to workout Shaun T [other than just on my TV)]+ we would do Insanity!
A song that gets me pumped to take on a #sweatsesh is… Let’s get it started by The Black-eyed Peas. It’s the perfect song to get me pumped + motivated to start an awesome #sweatsesh!
// INSPIRE //
My passion is… Inspiring others to live a healthy lifestyle through my example. My most important goal is to show others that you can enjoy exercise + that eating healthy doesn’t mean sacrificing flavor.
I am #inCHAARG because… I love being apart of this empowering community + igniting a passion for health + fitness in other girls, but being #inCHAARG is more than just being in an organization, it is being #inCHAARG of your life + your goals with motivation, fun, + support from girls with the same mentality as you.
