In my job, I teach our introductory human nutrition course to students as a general course, nursing pre-req, or science requirement. As part of my job I work on scholarly work (books and podcasts), speaking at conferences, and mentoring students through clubs and other college activities. My job gives me a lot of freedom to work on projects that I find helpful to our profession and the public.
