Peer Nutrition Educators
Peer Nutrition Educator
Hey, I'm Emily Owen, and I'm a senior Dietetics major. I am so excited and honored to be a PNE at the University of Georgia, although I never expected this is where God would bring me. I have always been interested in the medical field and loved learning about the intricacy of the human body. When I came to UGA and began taking nutrition classes however, I knew this was where I was meant to be. I have a strong passion for nutrition and the powerful affects food has on our bodies. It is because of this that I enjoy being a Peer Nutrition Educator so much. I get to tell people about nutrition and teach students how to make fun healthy meal choices throughout their lives. What better way to exemplify my passion than teaching it. Even though my dream is to practice clinical nutrition, I LOVE being a PNE and telling the world about food!
