What inspired or interested you about your field of study? And why did you choose OSU/the college?

I was inspired by my own health issues and the struggle it took for me to come to terms with how my diet would change and what I could do to make it easier. I originally was at the OSU-Cascades campus, but moved to the Corvallis campus when I declared pre-dietetics.

What are your post-college dreams/plans?

I plan to go to graduate school at Montana State University to complete my combined Masters of Science in Nutrition and Dietetic Internship! From there, I plan to take the RDN exam and work with the community to better access to and availability of good, nutritious foods.
