Hi, I am Tory!
I want to welcome you to Tory’s Stories. My story begins in Seattle, Washington where I grew up, continues to Arizona for undergrad, then off to San Francisco for graduate school, and now here I am in Dublin Ireland!
When I was 16, I fell in love with weightlifting. I did not know it at the time, but it is a passion that would stick with me and ultimately help me with the decision to become certified in Personal Training and Holistic Nutritionist. When I moved to San Francisco, I re-found my love of lifting, and a new love for spinning by joining a gym and working with a personal trainer who helped showed me what I was truly capable of, as well as how to eat properly. All while walking a ton, going to graduate school and managing my type 1 diabetes, I was able to fuel my body, work out hard, manage the stress of a masters program in Interior Architecture AND get in the best shape of my life!
Although adjusting to a new country took a little getting used to, I found a gym and decided to put my love of working out and healthy eating to use and became a certified personal trainer and holistic nutritionist. In June of 2017, I decided it was time for a change because I was not seeing the blood sugar results that I wanted to manage my type 1 diabetes, and I began a plant-based diet. I have had amazing results with plant-based eating and I am now working towards my certification in plant-based nutrition through Cornell University! My goal is to help coach, motivate and inspire people to be their best self. I can’t wait to share more stories with you!
