As my dad loved to cook and my mom was always into fitness, I inevitably developed a passion for both. Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to impact the world in some way, and found that when I was introduced to the world of dietetics/nutrition. Becoming a registered dietitian meant that I could merge my passions for food, fitness, and changing lives into one career path. What more could I ask for? It’s my dream job! As a dietitian, I prescribe food, as I truly believe that if we have a good relationship with our food, then food can be our medicine..
