New Contributor Intro: Meet, Morgan!
Helllloooooo Kylie’s party peeps. My name is Morgan. Here’s my face because research shows you’re more likely to bond with someone if you know what they look like.
TADA – that’s me. I am BEYOND excited that Kylie asked me to be a contributor for ImmaEatThat. I’ve been following along since 2012 and love her blog and love her even more. Kylie and I met because I am on the path to become a registered dietitian in the Houston area as well and she has been the greatest mentor and source of encouragement during all these years of school. In fact, I remember vividly when Kylie introduced the idea of intuitive eating to me and it instantly clicked and it’s been the most freeing thing I’ve ever experienced in my entire life. Yes. ENTIRE LIFE.
Unlike Kylie, I don’t have a huge desire to go into counseling. I like the corporate side of things. Ideal job? Work for a small food company (think: Noosa, Boom Chicka Pop, Salt & Straw, or Ben & Jerry’s) as their dietitian. Or maybe an airline and totally revamp their in-flight food options because a measly bag of peanuts is not enough to keep people satisfied on a three hour flight.
Oh, and speaking of airlines…. Being in an airplane or at an airport is my ultimate happy place. I seriously get giddy and smile at all the security people (who probably think I’m suspicious) and I skip down the moving conveyor belt thing on my way to Starbucks to get a vanilla latte for prime people watching fuel. I’m enchanted with the world, find romance in flying, and have no greater desire than to constantly go on adventures. In fact, I got back from Peru about two weeks ago.
My other true love? Coffee. But not actually coffee… espresso. But that kind of makes me sound like a diva so I just tell people I love coffee. In fact, a friend and I recently did a cafe crawl around Houston and visited 16 coffee shops in 21 hours. You think after all that caffeine we’d be wired, but MAN were we exhausted. Navigating Houston is no joke, y’all.
Last very important fact you should know about me: I am a total geek about designing things digitally. I love learning how to write code to build websites, experimenting with photography and videography, and making things look aesthetically pleasing to promote self-marketing. So much so, that I actually have a design company (Levanto Design Co.) to help small business owners grow their business.
Anywho, you’ll be seeing me pop up every now and then. Please stop and say hello :) I love love love how interactive y’all are with Kylie so tell me below: what is one thing I should know about you? Do we have anything in common?
