Alexandria Cotie discovered Julie Burns and SportFuel, Inc. during her time at the University of Illinois in Chicago, and immediately knew that was where she needed to work. Following graduation in 2011, her internship with SportFuel turned into a job, and she has been continuously expanding her knowledge ever since. Along with supporting the Chicago Blackhawks, Rockford IceHogs, and her private clients, Alex is frequently asked to give presentations to groups, including Nike, Jordan, elite hockey camps, athletic trainers, and youth and high school teams. She has also participated in various panel-setting talks to discuss real food nutrition.
Alex believes, and science supports, that great nutrition can have an astounding effect on an athlete’s strength, speed, mental clarity, and overall health and wellness, and also help reduce injuries. No matter how small, and no matter if you are 8 or 80, Alex encourages you to make a change to better yourself. In her free time, Alex enjoys all forms of fitness, spending time in nature, and fostering animals.
