Why I chose my major

I chose to major in dietetics because growing up I was always interested in the role food plays in our health. My dad is a type 1 diabetic, so food was always a major component in our family. Dietetics allowed me to learn more about proper nutrition and how it improves our overall health!

What I like most about FACS

What makes FACS so special is the professors! I have had lots of professors throughout my four years in undergrad, but the FACS professors go above and beyond! They take the time to get to know me and have supported me every step of the way!

Post-graduation plans

I will be starting medical school in August 2024.
