Jessica is a dietetic intern at Teachers College, Columbia University. She is currently working on her M.S. in Nutrition and Public Health and has her B.A. in Health and Exercise Science. She went into nutrition because she wants to help people eat and live healthy and happy lives, and she hopes to affect the food system in a way that makes it easier and more affordable to live healthy. In her free time, she likes to explore new places (in NYC and out!), bake, watch YouTube vlogs and re-runs of the Friends TV show, and take in all of the happy endorphins with yoga, HIIT, and lifting weights. Her current favorite food is avocado – with scrambled eggs, in salads, with tuna, on its own with a little hot sauce – it’s so versatile!
