  • I think the high point of the program for me is my culminating experience at Ohio State‚Äôs Recreation and Physical Activity Center (RPAC). I love having the opportunity to do nutrition counseling with such a variety of students and help them get back on track toward better health!

  • Being able to utilize the Interdisciplinary Specialization in Global Health has been a highlight of the OSU MS/DI Program. The diverse atmosphere at Ohio State has allowed me to expand my knowledge in an area of much interest to me, in addition to the dietetic internship and master's program.

  • I am so appreciative that the program has provided me with opportunities to grow in discovering which area of nutrition I am most passionate about. I entered the program thinking I would only do nutrition counseling in the future, but with a variety of opportunities -- like teaching at a local elementary school, counseling Ohio State students, and serving as a teaching assistant for an undergraduate nutrition assessment course -- I have realized that educating others on reaching optimal wellness is what I love most.
