I am currently completing my bachelor degree at URI. I developed an interest in community nutrition after taking a nutrition education course. That’s when I decided to volunteer at the community nutrition office where I developed a country spotlight for Haiti, where I am originally from. I also got the opportunity to assist in several nutrition programs for EFNEP, SNAP-Ed and CYFAR. I am very passionate about helping people get a positive mindset on nutrition and  overall well-being. As well as helping them to create healthy habits that will be beneficial to them for a lifetime. Outside of work, I love to spend time with my family and friends! I also love to cook and try new foods, travel and buy plants!
