I focus on nutrigenomics and studies that examine molecular relationships between nutrition and the response of genes, with the goal of understanding how changes in nutrition (exercise, stress reduction) can affect human health and lower risk of disease, while also improving mental and physical performance. I focus on glycemic index, macronutrient profiling and body composition, while integrating bio/psycho/social aspects of lifestyle change. I promote anti-alcohol and anti-drug messages and have lead a life without either. I also am very passionate about designing nutrition plans that yield tangible results.
My primary demographics include: baby boomers (lowering risk of disease, longevity and vitality), beginner to elite athletes (lowering risk of injury and aiding in the rehab process), mothers-to-be (maintaining a healthy body pre and post pregnancy) and the general public with goals to change their lifestyle choices. This website outlines the effective and engaging combination of nutrition, exercise and lifestyle management in my programs that can be delivered live or Skype/Facetime/Google Hangouts and also pre-recorded options via www.fitforlivinglife.thinkific.com so you can work with my from anywhere in the world!  You may contact me at  c.moos@stanfordalumni.org with title-head Fitforlivinglife (subject).

College

I earned a scholarship to Stanford University where we were Pac-10 Champs and earned All-Academic Pac-10. I graduated from Stanford in 2001, with a major in Sociology and minor in Communications (just shy of a double major due to the WNBA Draft, where I was picked by the Phoenix Mercury). I went on to finish my masters at USC after playing professional basketball. My M.A. is in Health Communication Management and the focus for my thesis was prevention over prescriptions whereby I examined the biological, psychology and sociological factors that influence lifestyle modification and long-term adherence to healthful lifestyle choices.

Professional Basketball

I was drafted to the Phoenix Mercury then played professional basketball for FIBA in Sceaux, France and for the Miami Sol in the WNBA. My level of international exposure has greatly shaped who I am today. The education that I gained through my international experience has developed my dynamic sociological perspective that is incredibly valuable in multiple facets of my life.
