What made you decide on your chosen career path? I was originally a Nutrition Science major in undergrad in order to fulfill science requirements for PA school, but the nutrition classes I took made me realize my passion for nutrition. I soon switched my major to dietetics so that I can work on the preventative side of medicine.
What activities are you involved in? I love weight lifting and exploring/hiking.
Why did you choose to intern at Pea Pod Nutrition and Lactation Support? I love lifecycle nutrition, and as an RD hope to work with women and children to provide optimal nutrition from pre-conception through childhood. After hearing Alicia speak at one of our skill’s sessions, I was very interested in learning more about Peapod and gaining more knowledge about lactation, maternal nutrition, and pediatric nutrition.
What is the best thing about working with Pea Pod so far? The knowledge I have gained from shadowing Alicia, and all the cute babies J
