How did you become interested in dietetics?
I always knew that I was interested in the medical field and wanted to help people, and decided to combine that with my passion for wellness, cooking and nutrition.

What do you enjoy most about being a dietitian?
I love that there are so many different opportunities for dietitians.  Schools, hospitals, nursing homes, grocery stores, and even sports teams employ dietitians, allowing you to really focus on what you love!

Do you have any advice for others who want to be successful in the dietetics field?
My advice to anyone interested in dietetics is to get some experience in the field.  This could be in the form of volunteer experience, work experience or just job shadowing.

What is your guilty food pleasure?
I have to admit, I do have a sweet tooth and I love dessert, especially if it has coconut or pecans!
