About Me
I am originally from Chicago and moved to Tucson in 2012 to attend the University of Arizona.  I received my BS in Nutritional Sciences from the U of A in May of 2016, and worked as a research technician for a year before entering the NSC Graduate Program as a MS student.

Why did I choose the Nutritional Sciences Graduate Program at the University of Arizona?
I really enjoyed my experience at the University of Arizona and in Tucson while obtaining my bachelor’s degree, and knew I wanted to further my research skills and knowledge.  I’ve learned so much working as a research technician and this work gave me insight into the NSC graduate program and enforced my desire to continue my education in the field.  I know that getting my master’s degree at the U of A will give me the education I need to further my career in nutritional sciences.​
