Hi my name is Olivia Moore and I’m a 2021 graduate from Tennessee Tech University with a degree in Nutrition and Dietetics. As a student, I was heavily involved and served in leadership positions in the Food, Nutrition, and Dietetics Club and the Human Ecology Honors Society Kappa Omicron Nu. I was also heavily involved in volunteer work and work with the TN Tech Food Pantry on campus. This fall I plan to complete a dietetic internship and master’s degree to get me one step closer to becoming a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist.
