Work Philosophy

  • Dedication and being honest are my main focus when it comes to work and working with others
  • Doing my best to use my knowledge, resources and time that is available to do the most that I can 


Within the next two years I hope to have completed a dietetic internship through an accredited program. I also hope to already have taken the Registered Dietitian Exam, or be in the process of preparing to take the exam. After receiving my Registered Dietitian license I hope to work in an office that focuses on nutrition counseling and education. I hope to work with a variety of different ages, ranging from children to older adults. 

Five years from now I hope to still enjoy working with the counseling aspect of food and nutrition. Eventually I would like to start my own practice. I would continue to focus my practice on nutrition counseling, but in the office I would like to have a gym and fitness facility so that my clients would have a place of their own to work out in. I would also like to be able to coordinate some specific aerobic or dance classes with the workout program, so that I would be able to use my minor degree in dance in my business as well.
