Nutrition Philosophy

A healthy lifestyle is not defined by a certain body shape or diet. It’s giving yourself the ultimate form of self-love by taking care of your physical, mental, and spiritual needs.

Background

Hi! My name is Rheanna and I am a 5th year clinical nutrition major who transferred from UC Riverside. I love it here at Davis and couldn’t be happier with my decision to transfer and pursue nutrition! I became fascinated with the subject when I was a senior in high school but quickly began to see that there is a lot of misinformation out there regarding nutrition. This encouraged me to seek out the truth by formally learning evidence-based nutrition and the science behind it. Along the way I fell in love with the science of nutrition and I knew that I wanted to pursue a career as a registered dietitian. I am especially fascinated with childhood development nutrition and the human microbiome, specifically involving interactions with diet and health outcomes. Some of my other interests include cooking, developing recipes, hiking, strength training, reading, and gardening. I love making creative dishes in the kitchen and always have recipes to share!
