Work Philosophy & Goals

My work philosophy centers around doing my best at everything I do. I also strive to help people and truly make a difference in their lives. This is one reason I want to go into the field of nutrition; I deeply believe that what you put into your body makes a difference in your quality of life. I love to work with a team and utilize my leadership skills that I have acquired through the years. People in the field of nutrition work together with a large variety of people, something I am able to do. I believe in treating everybody with the utmost respect, and networking whenever possible, which becoming a Registered Dietician encourages. 

A lot of the times we do not focus on nutrition nearly as much as we should; sometimes not at all. Bad nutrition many times leads to people becoming overweight and obese. The rising obesity epidemic in America is leading to deadly diseases like heart disease and cancer, to name a few. It is also costing millions of dollars and running people's quality of life. A short-term goal of my career, whether as a clinical dietitian or a physician and RD, would be to spark nutrition awareness and education in the community, starting with kids, so that we can stop problems before they begin. A long-term goal is to play a part in lowering the obesity rate in the state I practice in. And ultimately help to make the whole nation healthier, through education, awareness, and sparking people's interest in nutrition. Making a positive difference in the world is my goal in life, and I believe that nutrition is an excellent way to do that.
