Janessa Faust

"When I graduated from high school, I did not know what I wanted to study at the university. Recently I had started eating a gluten-free diet, for health reasons, but it wasn’t until my sophomore year that I decided to pursue a degree in nutrition. When I began to think about my thesis, I wanted to do something that contributed to my studies and it only made sense to pursue what had brought me to nutrition in the first place: the gluten-free diet."
