Abstract

The field of sports nutrition has evolved dramatically over the past decade. The deregulation of athlete feeding in the collegiate setting has resulted in exponential job growth as more programs recognize the importance of having dietitians readily accessible to their teams and athletes. While the timing of my career path did not align perfectly with the evolution of the sports dietetics profession, a winding path has led me to a role in which I have molded into a thrilling career. This presentation will highlight the role of the sports dietitian, capitalizing on development opportunities, and gaining the confidence of peers to create a role which matches the values and interests of an individual.
