I'm always a little bit apprehensive writing about myself. How do you sum up 55+years of living in a couple paragraphs? It's a hard thing to do. So today I'm just going to give it a shot and write whatever pops in my head as I sit tapping on my keyboard.
One of the main threads runnng through my entire life is my love of sports and my competetive nature. Growing up in Wheaton, MD I played baseball, basketball, football and tennis and was pssionately involved with the Redskins and Senators.
Today I stll follow the Redskins and sports in general but only play golf. Golf has become my main competetive passion between the lines.
As I get constantly interrupted by one of my two orange tabbys I guess you could call me an animal lover as well.
I have a wide variety of interests beyond sports including my main profession of accounting. I've been a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) since 1981 and have been a sole propriator since 1990 working with a variety of small businesses in Maryland, DC and Virginia.
As of January 2, 2012 I'm a NESTA Certified Fitness Nutrition Coach. My core understanding of sound nutritional concepts will help me sift through all of the misinformation and help to dispel any myths about nutrition and diets. In addition as of March 27, 2012 I've become a NESTA Lifestyle & Weight Management Specialist. The educational program and subsequent testing for the Lifestyle & Weight Management Specialist is based upon evidenced based research and actual studies that are guaranteed to bring results as long as the individual learns and implements the lifestyle changes suggested. The next step in my continued education is my pursuit of the NESTA's Kid's Nutrition Specialist designation.
Well that's enough for a short bio - I've left out a bunch of stuff but that's all for now.
