Once she entered her dietetic internship Paije had the opportunity to do a rotation with Rosewood Centers for Eating Disorders. That is when her passion to work in the mental health field grew.

Get To Know Paije
I would tell my teenage self to practice body neutrality/positivity. I would tell myself that my body will change and that is normal and okay!
I love being around friends and family and enjoying a day by the pool or inside playing games.
My dad always told me to put myself first and do what is best for me and not sacrifice myself for others.
If there was a movie about my life, Sarah Hyland from Modern Family, would play me. We look similar and her personality cracks me up.
I love having breakthroughs with my clients or knowing that we are close to a breakthrough. That gives me the most energy!
As a student of ASU I had a professor who worked in eating disorders and she was the most knowledgeable and passionate person I met. It drove me to follow in her footsteps and be just as passionate.
My first job was a life guard for the City of Chandler at my high school pool.
I would be cheetah/leopard print. I don’t even have to tell yo why, as soon as you meet me, you will understand.

I am most proud of reaching my goals to becoming a dietitian.
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be Marilyn Monroe. I felt that she didn’t have anyone in her life that didn’t use her for her fame and I would want to be that friend she could feel safe with.
I am most grateful for my family. They have always supported me in whatever I want to do.
I would read more.
I love helping others live life outside of diet culture.
