Nutrition Education Assistant
Areas of Expertise
I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Family and Consumer Sciences. I was drawn to this field of study because I absolutely love kids! This job not allows me to work with youth, but makes a positive impact in their lives and their families.
My main program that I teach is called Show Me Nutrition. I communicate with 1st through 5th graders about choosing healthy foods to eat and how to incorporate physical activity into their lifestyle. Another thing we talk about is body image and the ways that the media can influence how we think of ourselves.
Additionally, I share the Fresh Start Program. This is a one on one training program about nutrition for adults and is free for low income households. What I love about this effort in particular is that I get to meet with individuals several times a month and watch their growth every step of the way.
