Why I Care

"As a caregiver for my mother in college, I was inspired to pursuit the field of public health and nutrition to help provide others with the knowledge and tools to take care of themselves and their loved ones. I come from a long line of health professionals who have lived 90+ years, including my grandmother who is still my biggest inspiration in life. Her humor and wisdom keeps me grounded as I communicate with so many others who are caring for their elders."
