As a member of the LGBTQA+ community, I have spent a good portion of my life supporting and fighting for the rights of our community. Most recently, founding and leading the Portland, Maine based chapter of The OUT Foundation, a nationally recognized non-profit, dedicated to the health, wellness and positive, prosocial community development of the LGBTQA+ community. This was a perfect match for me, coupling my desire to support the LGBTAQ+ community and my secondary passion of nutrition, health and fitness. I am a strong believer in a holistic approach and that treatment and health is found in balance with the mind, body and soul. I am also a full-time law enforcement officer for the state of Maine, working with systems designed to help the most vulnerable of our communities.
