Why did you choose UVM?
  • I chose UVM because it offers a great Dietetics program. I knew that I would be getting a great academic experience while enjoying the laid back and earthy atmosphere of UVM and Burlington. Not to mention, UVM has a great environment to branch out and be part of various clubs and extracurriculars, and to find what interests you.

Favorite aspect of CALS:
  • My favorite aspect of CALS is having a tight knit community and having introduction classes that prepare you for presentations and working with computer technology. These classes really do help develop oral speaking and technological skills.

What would you like to do after you graduate?
  • After I graduate, I want to apply and receive an internship for Dietetics and then become a Registered Dietitian. I am hoping to continue my education and go to Graduate School for a degree in either Public Health, Psychology, or Food Management. At some point, I want to travel and join the Peace Corps so that I can aid impoverished third world countries.

Favorite Class at UVM:
  • My favorite class so far would have to be the elective I took my fall semester called Obesity, Fitness, and Weight Control taught by Lizzy Pope. It was entertaining, informative, and relative to what I dream of doing in my future (finding resolutions to combat national obesity).

Favorite outside of the classroom experience relating to CALS:
  • I enjoy being a CALS representative because it is so easy to relate to the admitted students, and explain to them why UVM (and CALS) is the best college. I remember being in their spot while deciding on colleges, and I want to be as helpful as I can in aiding in their college decision.

Extracurricular Activities:
  • Currently, I am a member of Feel Good, a national organization on campus that makes and sells grilled cheeses. 100% of the proceeds go towards The Hunger Project which a foundation set up to sustainably end world hunger. I am also part of the Student Dietetic Association for Dietetic,Nutrition, and Food Science Majors. In my free time, I enjoy running, yoga, meditating, spinning, exploring downtown Burlington, and taking part in Health and Wellness Residential Living.
