Wendi and Autumn first met back in 2016 when Wendi was a Fueling Gators Sports Nutrition intern at the University of Florida! Autumn was a student-athlete coming into the fueling station between classes to fuel up on the right snacks to support her training, recovery, and performance.

Autumn followed Wendi on social media over the years and applied instantly when she saw the posting for a new sports nutrition coach! 

Autumn’s favorite quote:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. …We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.”  – Marianne Wilson
