About the Author:

My name is Adrian Boulter and I am currently an undergraduate dietetic student at TWU in Denton. I hold two part-time positions as a bilingual healthy lifestyle coach for the YMCA and a nutrition communications assistant under RDN Neva Cochran. I expect to graduate Spring 2018 with a double major in Dietetics and Food and Nutrition in Business and Industry with a minor in Spanish. After I complete my undergraduate studies I hope to do a dual or coordinated program to become a RDN with a masters in nutrition sciences. My biggest interest is in foodservice management. My plan is to earn an extensive amount of experience working as a RDN to create my own health promoting business. I love learning languages and hope to accomplish advanced fluency in both Spanish and Mandarin Chinese. What has driven me the most during my college career is my strong desire to become an RDN to help improve the health of my community. I want to create something impactful that will continue to benefit the public to ensure a better future for society’s well being. I am particularly passionate about reaching minority, low-income, senior, and adolescent groups. I am also focused on environmental conservation and ways we can ensure a safe and habitable planet for upcoming generations. My favorite things to do are cook, run, ride bikes, play with cute baby animals, and jam out to various genres of music.
