Why I do what I do

In the moment, I could not have known that taking a trip with Free the Children would unearth my passion for nutrition, but here I am six years later practicing as a Registered Dietitian. 

The trip was to Kenya, and I was part of a group of 25 eager youth who were ready to see the world and to create change. I embarked on this journey expecting to make a positive difference in someone else’s life, to leave a small footprint in the world in which I live. What I did not expect was to have this experience shape me and my future.
