Claudia is an Iowa State University 2021 graduate with a double degree in nutritional sciences and dietetics. She is currently pursuing her Master’s in biochemical nutrition at the same institution. Claudia loves to spend time with friends and family in her free time, trying new recipes, going for runs, and trying new hobbies like taking care of plants. She is passionate about nutrition research, as it has been a part of her life for three years. She has worked on various projects that focus on the role eating patterns and drug interventions play in the treatment of polycystic ovary syndrome and type 2 diabetes. Her goal is to become a women’s health dietitian, and she hopes to use what she has learned during years of research to help women feel empowered by their bodies and break the stigma of diet culture.
