About the Author: Kristin Gerkens
My name is Kristin Gerkens and I am a Post Baccalaureate student at the University of North Florida pursuing a degree in Nutrition and Dietetics with a previous degree in Exercise Science. I plan to become a Registered Dietician and one day open up my own practice. I ultimately want to help people achieve their health and wellness goals as well as become the healthiest versions of themselves that they can be. I love how nutrition is constantly evolving and I love learning about the research behind how food works in the body. I believe that the body is an amazing machine that should be fed the highest quality fuel!
