Goals

My long-term goal is to successfully finish my degree in Nutrition and Dietetics and obtain the credentials needed to become a registered dietitian in New York. 

Short-term, I'm creating an early morning class following at my yoga studio in Astoria, NY.  I'm posting flyers around the studio and around town to attract new clientele, as well as encouraging the students I already have by conveying the many benefits of waking up early to practice yoga before they go to work. 

I strive to do well in my academic classes so I can achieve my long-term goal. I'd like to broaden my knowledge in nutrition and dietetics in order to develop a more specific vision of the area of expertise that I want in my future career.

I continually dedicate myself to a regular yoga practice to maintain good health, but I also aspire to be a leader in advocating healthy nutritional values to create a strong, focused practice for my students.
