Welcome to my little space of self-presentation. I am sure you are not really interested in thousand words biography, so here I am with my long story short.
I am a genetics and molecular biologist, registered sport and exercise nutritionist, fitness trainer and researcher fascinated by this remarkable machine called the human body.
My passion led me to science. After a bachelor degree in general biology, I completed a master in genetics and molecular cytology. During the studies, I specialised in cancer research and worked with cancer cells in the laboratory, but when I discovered epigenetic, my life took a different direction.
I became fascinated by the effect of the environment on genes, and particularly interested in nutrition and physical activity, two main factors in our everyday lives that significantly influence our genes, and thus our health.
Therefore, I decided to continue with studies of nutrition and exercise to obtain my second master degree.
While studying, I completed a level 2 fitness trainer certificate and used to work as a fitness trainer, especially enjoying Zumba classes.
Currently, I work as a research assistant in nutrition and cancer research at the University of Manchester.
I am nutrition blogger at Fitshaker.sk and run my Advanced Eating web with the aim to inform public about the power of nutrition, especially to prevent diseases.
And because prevention starts with learning about nutrition and healthy eating habits, I have started a new project for kids. Coming soon!
