What is the best career decision that you have made?

To select dietetics/nutrition.

If you had to do it over again, what would you do differently?

Take additional courses in genetics, biochemistry and human metabolism.

How have women helped further your career?

Women have primarily guided me along my journey by suggesting I apply for a graduate assistantship and then a dietetic internship at Ohio State University, both of which I received.  They have been my mentors and encouraged me by expressing their pride in my progress.
