Health knowledge made personal

Nikki F.

San Mateo, California
Hi! I'm a recent college grad and have just moved back north (SF area) from LA. I'm an active, not-quite-coordinated one who enjoys food and fun. I like to work out and try to eat as healthfully as possible. I'm a vegetarian. I do sports that aren't too seriously competitive (since I'm generally not very good at them). Snowboarding is fabulous. I run.
