Nutritional Sciences - MSDI

I am a Master of Science in nutritional sciences with dietetic internship student at UNH and new to the state of New Hampshire. I was born and raised in Granite City, Illinois, a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. I grew up in my family’s restaurant, which sparked my love for food from a young age. Before attending UNH, I received my bachelor’s degree in nutrition and dietetics with a culinary emphasis at Saint Louis University. When not attending school, I spend lots of time working in the kitchen. I even had the opportunity to be the consultant for two different restaurants. In my spare time, I enjoy playing the organ, hitting golf balls, and bargain hunting.
