2016 in a one word description would be something like... changing. Maybe it's a part of being twenty-something, but I feel like I've seen some of the biggest changes in my life during the past couple of years. During 2016, I acquired my Precision Nutrition Certification, went through a major personal life change, and was awarded a promotion at my work that combines my passion for fitness with my knack for marketing. These pivotal moments of 2016 not only changed my life circumstance, they helped me grow as an individual. Change can be scary for a lot of people. For me, it's freeing.
