January 2018 Blog Post

Happy 2018! When the New Year rolls around, we like to look forward to all the things we can accomplish with the next 365 days ahead of us.  Many people have health, fitness, or nutrition goals, and our team at Texins is ready to help you meet those goals.  This New Year, I’d like to introduce myself to you all as the new dietitian at Texins.  My name is Morgan Johnson.  I’ve worked in the fitness and corporate wellness realm for the past two years and am excited to put my experiences and expertise at work here at Texins.  Before we dive into all things nutrition, I want to tell you a little about myself.  I graduated from the University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) with an undergraduate degree in Human Development and Masters’ in Human Nutrition. With my diverse education, I’ve worked in many different environments – from a pediatric hospital, an adult hospital to corporate wellness and tele-health.  When I’m not talking about food, you’ll likely find me doing CrossFit.  I am a Level 1 trainer, and teach a few classes a week at my local box.  My favorite vegetables are sugar snap peas and Brussels sprouts.  My favorite “fun” food is ice cream.  My husband and I have two dogs; their names are Ellie and Bear.

Now that you know a little about me, I look forward to getting to know you – the TI employees and Texins’ members.  To help me get to know some of you, let’s play a little trivia game.  If you can answer this question (either email me the answer or stop by and see me!), the first 10 people to respond with the correct answer will win a free water bottle!

Question:  Which Alabama football coach is my dog (Bear) named after?

My office is located in the Texins Fitness Center on the weight room floor, or you can contact me via email at mrjohnson@ti.com.

I hope to see and hear from ya’ll in the future, and be on the lookout for the next blog post in February.
