- Why I chose my major
Growing up an athlete myself, I am eager to be a part of the movement to make evidence-based nutrition common knowledge for all athletes and young adults.
- What I like most about FACS
I love being in a smaller college like FACS because of the individualized attention and care you receive as a student. It is an amazing feeling to walk the halls of Dawson and see all of your peers and professors that you recognize in the halls. It truly feels like a family.
- Post-graduation plans
I will be moving to Nashville, Tenn., to attend Lipscomb University’s combined master of science in sports nutrition and dietetic internship program.
