Lessons Learned (and some great FNCE pictures!)

Last week, I had the opportunity to travel to the west coast, where I attended the annual Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE)  in San Diego, California. I am not a big fan of airplanes, or traveling by myself, but I forced myself on that plane because I knew that the payoff would be worth it! I met many new faces, visited new places, and never thought that I could do it alone. I explored some beautiful areas on the west coast, walked many miles around town, and tasted some delicious local food. Most importantly, I learned a lot about myself and what I am capable of.  I wanted to share with you all some of the life lessons that I have learned along this journey…along with some pictures I took at the FNCE conference!

1. You never know until you try

6. People come into your life for a reason

I'm so thankful that I got to spend time with my fellow dietetic interns!
