Welcome to Crunches for Cupcakes!
My blog is my life story, with some useful information thrown in. I try to do lots of little things each day to lead me to a healthier and happier life.

I grew up in a small town on the MA/RI border and went to high school in RI. I attended Northeastern University and graduated in 2006 with a BA in English. During my 5 years at NU, I completed co-ops at Walt Disney World and the Improper Bostonian. Upon graduation, I worked for Northeastern as a researcher in the Development department. In the winter of 2007, I began working for Boston College as a researcher in the University Advancement department. Same job, different name. I earned an MS in Administrative Studies from Boston College in 2009.
In April 2010, I decided to leave my job at BC and pursue my career passions. I spent 4 months working as a Membership Advisor at HealthWorks.
Now I’m back on the passion pursuit, searching for a career that I will be truly happy with and freelance writing.
Health and Fitness
I began gymnastics at age 5 and practiced the sport for 11 years. During my junior year of high school, I quiet gymnastics and joined the Bay State All Stars competitive cheerleading team. I continued cheering as an undergrad at Northeastern. In 2002, I was part of the team that won the NCA College National Championships in Division I co-ed. After college, I cheered for East Elite’s Co-ed Open Team for the 2007-2008 season. Then I entered grad school and cheered for Boston College during the 2008 football season.
I have always been into working out and eating right. I’ve taken courses about eating disorders and nutrition & aging, as well as a course about sports and competitive performance.
*I’m currently studying to earn my AFPA certification to be a Nutrition and Wellness Consultant.*
Besides my interest in healthy living (food and exercise), I love fashion. Shopping on Boston’s Newbury Street is one of my favorite things to do. I love traveling! I’m hoping to add more locations to the list as time and $ permit. While I can be a wimp about trying new foods, I will never turn down a glass of wine or a bite of dessert. I love Disney World. I’m practically an expert in any and all things Disney-related.
Plus I love cupcakes!!!
