About the Author and Owner behind The Martin’s Kitchen

Hi! Julie here. So you want to know a little about me. Well, I originally grew up in Florida. I moved to North Carolina in 2011 at 18 years old when I followed a boy to college. I completed my bachelors degree at NC State and my masters degree at Meredith College. When I first started college, I wanted to become a doctor… then I took my first nutrition class and have been hooked ever since. After finishing my undergraduate degree, I knew I wanted to continue my education so off to graduate school! Once I completed graduate school, I knew I wanted to be a registered dietitian, so I completed a 1200-hr internship and passed a really hard test to become one. Now I am a registered and licensed dietitian who works as a consultant in LTC facilities and a mental health hospital. I genuinely love my job. Recently I was asked “What do you want to do, do you want to continue doing what you are doing, or do you have bigger plans?” and I immediately said “I can’t see myself doing anything else right now.” I started this blog as a hobby that includes all things I love… food, cooking, nutrition, writing, and traveling. Since this is a hobby, you’ll notice I can post excessively in a short span of time or go months without posting. I apologize if you were looking for a daily blogger, you’ll have to continue your search. Oh about that boy I followed to NC at 18 year olds… we are happily married now living on a little slice of land with our kitty cat and doggo!

My food mantra(s):
— Food first.
— Everything in moderation.
— If you can read, you can cook.
