Stephanie’s Answer

Since you mentioned your love of working out and being active, the obvious professions for you would be: personal trainer or licensed dietitian- in those roles you are coaching and educating individuals, which can be very rewarding/fulfilling. Neither of those roles requires you to have a Master’s degree, so having that as a credential could allow you to command a larger salary.

On the less conventional side, a Master’s Degree in Dietetics could provide lead to several other career options:
-Director of Nutrition Services for a hospital
-On-site Nutrition Counselor for employees of large corporations/tech companies
-Nutrition sales for infant formula companies
-Director of Nutrition for large school systems
-Lobbyist for the American Dietetic Association
