Why is Tammy a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist?

For Tammy, it was a rather long journey with so many experiences that played a role in becoming a dietitian! She decided to return to school when her kiddos older, but felt she needed to pursue something where I could give back. Tammy has always been fascinated with food, health, and wellness. She became more committed to nutrition when she reflected on her family’s experience with autism and chronic health conditions. They were significant challenges, and she decided to be who she needed when she was younger.

I felt I needed to pursue something where I could give back.
