Summary

I am currently a student at The University of Alabama studying nutrition. Nutrition has always been a great interest of mine as well as athletics. I am hoping to major with this degree and obtain a job involving both of these interests. I was an athlete all through high school and into my first year of college. Eating well is a requirement if an athlete wants to perform to his or her full ability. My goal with this major is to stay close to sports and help athletes perform well through a focus on health and nutrition.

Interest

Volleyball, exercise, photography, cooking, horseback riding, hiking and anything involving outdoor activities. If I'm not outside enjoying the day I prefer to be in the kitchen creating a masterpiece with food. Both are better shared with friends and family.

Objective

My interests in sports, nutrition and other activities have always involved being part of a team and interacting with others. It is my desire to take these life skills and apply them to a career that will allow me to serve people and improve the quality of their life.

My father is a skilled carpenter who believes in teaching his skills to his children. Throughout my life, I have been involved in all manner of construction projects from small repairs to assisting with the construction of our home. These skills have proven helpful time and time again in my life. They not only contribute to the teaching of project and time management but have allowed me opportunities to serve others. In 2009 I was involved with a mission trip that allowed to participate in the rebuilding of a home in New Orleans destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. From knocking down walls, pouring concrete, installing windows and evening digging a fish pond for the front yard, I was able to help not only rebuild a house but to be a part of rebuilding a home and family.
