I am Laura, 24 years old and working as a Junior Consultant Innovation & Life Sciences. During my bachelor Biomedical Sciences in Maastricht, I realised I wanted to make a difference in the healthcare system with a nutrition-based approach. Therefore, I did a specialisation in molecular and clinical nutrition. After graduation, I was conflicted about my next steps; a nutrition related masters programme or bringing my knowledge into practice as an academic dietitian?
Ultimately, I decided to go for both: a Masters degree Nutrition & Health (specialisations Nutrition & the Brain and Nutrition & Cancer) and simultaneously a second bachelor Nutrition & Dietetics. In my opinion, combining medical expertise with nutritional expertise can contribute a lot in both our healthcare system as on an individual level.
Currently, I am working as a junior consultant innovation and life sciences while finishing the last steps to obtain my academic dietitian title.
