Latest Student Corner Interview
Stephanie Nadeau Brust
MS, CPT, Dietetic Intern
Florida International University
I am a 29-year-old newlywed with a passion for health and wellness. Over six years ago I earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance, but quickly found dissatisfaction with my chosen career path. I believe you are most successful when you love what you do, so I decided to make a switch. A desire to promote healthy living brought me back to school to advance my knowledge and earn the credentials required to fulfill my dream career. I recently graduated from Florida International University (FIU) with a Master of Science in Dietetics and Nutrition. I am now currently enrolled in their internship program, finishing in August, and anticipate attaining the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) credential this year.
