Meet the Ambassador


Hello, ladies!

My name is Katie, + I’m a Senior majoring in Molecular + Cellular Biology. I’m so glad that you’re interested in becoming a member of Vandy CHAARG! After years of struggling with a negative body image + unhealthy relationship with food, joining CHAARG finally helped me learn how to truly love myself + my body, no matter where I am in my journey. This community of women is so positive + strong, + even though we all come from different backgrounds + interests we share a common dedication to lifting each other up when we’re down [++ lifting heavy dumbbells, too]. Life at Vanderbilt can be challenging – classes are tough + there’s definitely pressure to be involved in as much as you possibly can. Through CHAARG, you’ll learn how to better practice self-care + achieve a beautiful work-life balance in a healthy way. On top of that, the fitness scene in Nashville is absolutely booming – we cannot wait to explore the city with you!
