My name is Erin Van Genderen.

I'm a writer, with a degree in journalism from the University of Arkansas. 

I'm also an RD-to-be in the University of Alabama Distance Dietetics program. After working as a freelance journalist in the health and wellness field, I decided to go back to school to become a Registered Dietitian. 

My interests include the ketogenic diet, behavior change and nutrition counseling, nutrition education program development, and workplace wellness. I'd like to learn more about MNT for diabetes and nutrition therapy for cancer treatment, among other topics. 

When I'm not studying, I enjoy being outside, lifting weights, and cooking up meals made with fresh, local goods. I also love reading, knitting, and international travel.
