Welcome to StrongandSmiling!

I’m so glad you’ve found my blog! Now here’s a little more about the writer behind the posts….

I’m 21 years old, and will (soon!) be finishing my senior year of college, where I am graduating with a BBA in Marketing, a concentration in business analytics, an emphasis in data science and a minor in mathematics. Talk about a mouthful! I’m looking forward to joining the Deloitte family in Fall 2017 in their Federal Advisory sector. (I say this smiling so wide!) My past has included working for the Department of Justice (as a summer intern), Under Armour (as a sales associate), Panera Bread (as a cashier and barista) and as a division 1 NCAA student-athlete (which in all reality should be called “athlete-students”).selfie with beau

Exercising, living a healthy lifestyle, and staying positive and happy are all huge parts of my life and I’m excited to share these passions with all of you! In particular, I love playing practicing yoga, running, lifting (not-insanely heavy) weights, playing tennis, biking, attempting easy gymnastics moves, slack-lining and basically any other physically challenging activities. Joining all of those on my list of favorite things are radiating happiness, coaching youth sports, being active with my three younger sisters (and parents!), eating bananas, taking selfies and my Himalayan cat, Beau.



I hope to motivate, inspire, and inform my readers about living healthy and being happy. Be on the lookout in the future for positive and motivational quotes, workout/exercise ideas and plans, healthy and nutritional meals and snacks, as well as apps, websites, and products that I love!

Thank you for checking out my blog and feel free to share it!

    Jeez you must be super busy! That’s awesome though-the amount of activities you take part in! Varisty field hockey that’s awesome! What position do you play? I used to dabble myself way back when, but now I find ice hockey to be my forte. If ya like gymnastics you should look into parkour, it seems up your alley! Great blog hoping to see more! Ps. Your cat is wayy too adorable!

      I mostly play midfield; however my coaches also sometimes put me in for forward and even defense too! I’m a pretty versatile player and don’t mind too much about what position I play. That’s awesome that you play ice hockey! If I could ice skate better that’s definitely something I would want to try. And I’m glad that you like my blog 🙂 I’ll be sure to post more pictures of my cat too in the future!

        Yeah know kidding, you’ve definitely got some flexibility when it comes to your sport! Skating gets better with practice, even I still have stuff to learn, aw your cat is too cute! Look forward to your future posts!
