Why I chose my major

Before coming to UGA, I knew I wanted to work in healthcare, but I was never quite sure where. After learning about what a registered dietitian does, I realized that dietetics would be the perfect major for me. It allows me to combine my love of cooking, science, and working with people into one career! Dietetics has greatly expanded my view of the impact of good nutrition on community health and how it can improve lives.

What I like most about FACS

The faculty and staff are so kind and welcoming. My professors are always willing to help and FACS truly feels like a community. Each person is genuine and committed to creating a great learning environment. I love the focus on outreach to the greater Athens area and beyond, and the emphasis on helping others.

Post-graduation plans

I will continue earning my master’s degree in Nutritional Sciences at UGA through the Double Dawgs program. After graduation, I plan to attend a dietetic internship and become a registered dietitian.
