Dietetic Intern
Texas A&M

I am currently living in Temple, Texas. Upon completion of my Master’s Degree, in August, I began my Dietetic Internship through Texas A&M. I am currently in the second half of the Internship with plans to become a Registered Dietitian in May.

I would like to remain in the clinical setting for a few years, not only for the experience, but also to give me time to decide what area I would like to specialize in. I would like to remain in Temple and work in one of the hospitals in the area.
