About Stephanie Moore
I grew up on the Oregon coast in the small town of Warrenton where I met my high school sweetheart and married shortly after graduating from Clatsop Community College with my Associate's degree. I transferred to Oregon State University to pursue my love for nutrition. At OSU I had the privilege of being involved in the Nutrition and Dietetics Club which I served as webmaster for my senior year. I graduated from OSU in the Spring of 2014 with my Bachelor's degree in Nutrition. My passion for nutrition started in high school and has grown so much since pursuing a career in dietetics. I am interested in working in many areas of dietetics, including renal, oncology, sports nutrition and public health. When I'm not studying nutrition, I enjoy exercising, reading, playing piano, going on adventures with my husband, cooking up new recipes in the kitchen and working on my blog, bellyfullofkale.wordpress.com.
