"My nutrition degree from Bastyr University gave me the perfect blend of nutrition sciences and art, with the necessary backbone of wellness. Not only did I get an in-depth understanding of the biochemistry going on (regarding nutrients, microbiome, nutrigenomics, etc.), but received culinary training on how to actually apply that science to food. I was equipped to know how to go beyond the classroom and study nutrition and wellness deeper, and to venture out on the journey of starting my own business. It truly is a unique program to be treasured. "
