RACHAEL SIMON
DIETETICS STUDENT

  • Senior in Nutrition and Dietetics at Auburn University
  • Exploring potential career paths
  • Passionate about using food to improve health

I am currently a senior at Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama about to finish my Bachelor of Science in Nutrition/Dietetics. I want to pursue a master’s in nutrition and start my internship as soon as I graduate in May.

Currently, I am looking at working as a clinical dietitian, but I have my mind open to any opportunity! I first got into the world of nutrition when I was 13-14 trying to lose weight. I started looking online for guidance, which of course, led me to some misinformation and bad advice. Still, I loved the information I was learning as not everything was false.

I eventually got my first job ever at a small, local health food store in my small town. This is where I found a community of people wanting to know how to improve their health through the foods they eat. Even years later after I left the job, the concept of health and food is still very important to me and is a core value in the field of dietetics. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be more educated on a higher level at just how and why what nutrition does for our body is so important.

I know people yearn for knowledge and help on decreasing chronic lifestyle disease, improving mood, decreasing food disparages, and learning to love all foods. I look forward to working with Build Up and getting to be apart of the community of dietitians whose goals are the same as mine. I am excited to learn from those who have been in the field for years now and continue to explore career paths that may end up being my calling.
