Certified Nuritionist: As defined by Pennsylvania laws (my state of residence). This is not the same as a CCN. I want to be an Registered Dietician, so it doesn't make sense to become a CCN. Plus, the laws in some states are changing for Nutritionists & making RDs the standard. This is unfortunate, but true. This will make it impossible for people who have careers in holistic nutrition & the like to continue their practices. Even though I personally want to be an RD, I do think that people should be able to have a choice in resources when it comes to their health.

These don't have a lot to do with my profession now; but not only are they a lot of years of college-level studies, it is also noteworthy that all my training in singing & on the stage has really helped aid in my communication skills, teaching/demonstrating, & ability to present in front of large groups. Finally, I am proud of the time I spent at each place & studied under some world-reknowned professionals & no one can ever take that knowledge away from me.

Carnegie Mellon University - August 2000-June 2002: College of Fine Arts Alumna. 60+ credits earned toward Bachelor's of Fine Art's (BFA) Degree in Voice. A life-altering situation forced me to put this degree on hold. Since over half is completed, I would maybe consider returning someday to complete the program; but it seems like my life has taken a different direction now. I still sing professionally as an independent contractor for weddings/funerals/baptisms/church appearances/etc., am an active member & Soprano for The Pittsburgh Concert Chorale,

Robert Morris University - MBA Transfer Program, 2005-2006: Before landing a job in management, I took the 1st three levels of General MBA courses at University of Phoenix, Pittsburgh Location to save money before transferring to Robert Morris. After I received the position, I deferred my acceptance (which was a wise decision because I fell in love with fitness & nutrition - a much more family-friendly career!)
