After I graduate from Texas A&M University with a bachelor’s degree in Nutrition and a minor in psychology, I will enter a combined master’s degree/internship program in order to become a dietitian. My dream is to open up my own practice with a variety of services ranging from eating disorder treatment maternal nutrition, and weight management.
