After completing my M.S. in Nutrition Science and Dietetic Internship at the University of Tennessee (Knoxville, TN), I worked full time as a Pediatric Dietitian at the Johns Hopkins Children's Center (Baltimore, MD). This experience confirmed my interest in exercise and disease and inspired me to return to school full-time to pursue a PhD in Kinesiology.
