Welcome to my slice of the internet
I’m Marla, the creator of The Blonde Pantry, a website that encompasses food, health, nutrition, travel, lifestyle, & home decor. Here you will find what makes me, me and hopefully I can add something tasty to your table, something beautiful to your home and something thoughtful to your mind.
After graduating from Texas Tech with my bachelors of Science in Nutrition & Dietetics, I became a registered dietitian and worked in a Houston hospital for a while. I quickly realized how limited my reach was at the hospital and decided to start blog as a creative outlet and to hopefully build a new career path for myself. The blog turned into a small nutrition consulting company were I would work one-on-one with clients to provide meal plans, nutrition recommendations and accountability. Over the first year, that grew into working around Houston providing corporate nutrition presentations to companies like Coca Cola and NASA.
As The Blonde Pantry continued to expand, I decided to try out creating a local meal delivery company for the handful of one-on-one clients and solely focused on that for a few years until having my daughter. Since closing the delivery company, I am finding a new path to follow as a stay at home mom and raising my tiny human, Madelyn. So much magic happens between the 4 walls of a home when you become a parent and I am enjoying this different pace of life at the moment.
But once a creative, always a creative and this website is my outlet. Our family will be moving to Los Angeles, California for my husband’s job in July 2020, for only one year so he can finish his fellowship and then we are up for grabs, whichever way life will take us. So with a lot of blind faith, I’m here to share my part along the way and I’m glad to have you following along in the adventure we are creating, the life we are building and home we are making.
