“My hope is that in the future I have a career that is multi-faceted and allows me to work in all of the areas related to adolescent nutrition and physical activity that I am passionate about. I hope to be able to do chronic disease prevention and health promotion work with low-income adolescents and their families related to nutrition, physical activity, and overall wellness by conducting assessments and then designing and implementing tailored school-based nutrition education and physical activity curriculum.”

“During my doctoral training, I hope to strengthen my applied skills in implementation and evaluation of nutrition and physical activity programs and policies. Specifically, I am excited to work on obesity and chronic disease prevention programs in underserved communities.”
