Work Philosophy

What originally attracted me to nutrition was my fascination of what food can do for your body. Not only is it a source of fuel, it also helps heal wounds, acts as medication, and provides enjoyment for all people. In today’s society we are choosing the wrong kinds of food to eat and also eating too much of it, it is killing us instead of healing us and becoming toxic for our lives. As a registered dietician, I am going to show people that you can eat healthy and it still taste just as delicious as the high calorie high fat foods. I believe that most people eat unhealthy because they lack the knowledge they need to choose and cook healthy meals. I know that I can help people in this area and set out to increase people’s knowledge one person at a time. One person could turn into a community and a community could turn into a nation. I have such a passion for nutrition and I know that it is the place where I will make a difference in this world.

Initial Goals

My initial goals all deal with school. I plan to maintain a high GPA and excell in all of my nutrition classes. I plan on getting to know the teachers well, and create relationships with other people in the field of Nutrition. I would also love to do my 491 abroad, this way I can develope an appreciation and understanding of nutrition in other cultures. My biggest goal is to graduate from The University of Alabama with honors and become a RD.
