Why I chose my major

I chose to be a dietetics major because food and nutrition has an immense power to affect the way that people view themselves, interact with others, and perceive their overall quality of life. Therefore, I believe that impacting people's food choices and overall relationship with food can be one of the most effective ways to influence their self-esteem in both a positive and long-lasting way.

What I like most about FACS

The faculty and staff within FACS work diligently to create a supportive environment that facilitates community, hard-work, and immense success. I would not be where I am today without people like Dr. Emma Laing, Dr. Tracey Brigman, Bev Hull, and Donna Holcomb, and for them, I am ever thankful. FACS is family, and the faculty and staff are truly what makes this possible.

Post-graduation plans

After graduation, I plan on finishing out my Double Dawgs pathway and obtaining my master’s degree in dietetics. From there, I hope to pursue a Dietetic Internship in Atlanta and in the end, become a Registered Dietitian. As both an aspiring Registered Dietitian and in the future as I open my own private practice, I want to inspire confidence in others through healthy living, adventure, and positivity.
