A Career Change to Nutrition Science
People end up in professions for lots of different reasons. In my case, I first thought I wanted to become a marine biologist, then possibly a nurse, and then I finally decided to become a nutrition scientist. I’m lucky because I know I made the right decision. The point is that it took years to figure it all out. I know other nutrition professionals who started out as journalists or fitness pros or medical technologists. The good news is that just about any first career can cross paths with nutrition science.
