Why did you decide to come to UNL? I honestly was not excited about the thought of coming to a university large as UNL, but I had my heart set on dietetics and not many schools offer that major. I can genuinely say it was one of the best decisions I've ever made and I could not imagine my past four years anywhere but UNL.

What is your favorite thing about UNL? Opportunities. There are so many ways to get involved, challenge yourself, and find groups interested in the same things you are. Oh, and of course Husker Pride!

What is your favorite class you have taken so far and why? My favorite class taken at UNL has been exercise physiology. It was challenging, but extremely interesting and the teacher, Terry Housh, is able to make even the most difficult information comprehendible and enjoyable to learn.  

What are your plans post-graduation? After graduation, I plan to embark upon a dietetic internship and a master's degree in nutrition which will allow me to become a registered dietitian. I love all areas of dietetics, so I'm not sure where I'll end up, but any job where I can help people become more of the individual God created them to be, nutritionally and otherwise will be fulfilling to me.

What's life like outside of school? There's life outside school? When I'm not doing school work, you'll find me teaching fitness classes at the East Campus Rec Center, doing activities through the Newman Center on campus, running and cooking with friends or spending time with my adorable niece.
