My name is Angie. I just turned 29-yikes. I am married to a great guy whom I met in college. We are blessed to be new parents to a wonderful, beautiful, and smart baby girl who was born in October 2009. We live in Overland Park, Kansas with our two rescue dogs.
I graduated from the University of Missouri in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts and in 2005 with a Masters of Public Administration. I attended the University of Iowa as a doctoral student in Public Health for one year, but wasn't quite sure it was the right career path. I left there for a position as a Research Associate (aka professional nerd) for a family medicine practice based research network. Since my daughter was born, I starting working part-time as the Project Manager on several exciting quality improvement research projects.
I am passionate about helping people lead healthier lives. I strive to have a healthy lifestyle by eating well, being active, and (attempting) to stress less. I enjoy taking photographs, gardening, writing, listening to NPR, spending time with friends and family, and hanging out at the lake. I am trying to become a more competent cook and enjoy experimenting with new recipes.
I am also a part-time student. I am pursuing a career in Dietetics. I will be finished with my program in May 2011 (only 4 more classes-hooray!). I hope to work in a community setting as an RD in the near future.
