internHey there, I’m Lauren.  I was born, raised, and educated in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts and grew up hiking the Holyoke range (pictured in my header), downhill ski racing, dancing in my underwear, running around in the woods, catching frogs, and eating berries from plants I found on the side of country roads (totally safe, I swear).  I continue all of these activities to this day, but have added marathon runner, aspiring dietitian, and group fitness instructor to my resume.

Last spring, I graduated summa cum laude from UMass-Amherst with a B.S. in Nutrition and have continued to pursue that passion with a dietetic internship at Tulane University in New Orleans.  Yep, country/mountain girl moves to a city below sea level.  It’s been an interesting adventure, and I am trying to chronicle the ups and downs here.

  1. Hi Lauren, my name is Emily. I stumbled across your blog and had to comment! I’m also a Dietetic Intern currently in South Florida, though my first rotation has yet to start (another week and a half!) I’ll definitely be following to see how your internship experience differs!
