Hello Barrett, I think that learning about nutrition would be something very useful one can learn for themselves. In a role where you would be counselling others after you obtain your degree, you are also helping, guiding and listening to others which is highly rewarding and a place where you can be of great service to many others. Self care is also an important task in our own lives because we cannot serve from an empty vessel, so there are plenty of nutrition education certifications that give you very grounded information and basics of nutrition, I am a nutritionist myself too but I also worked in different roles before where I still continued to invest in nutrition education. This would be something you could invest in for yourself and make time for because it will relate to you and your own health! I would recommend some basic nutrition certifications first and see, there are plenty out there! Feel free to msg me if you have any questions!
