Exercise Science and Research Shape a Career in Dietetics

Grettie Reifenberger ’22 is pursuing a degree in exercise science, with plans to work in the field of dietetics, eventually as a registered dietitian. While at Berry, Grettie took on challenging — and meaningful — research opportunities that add professional depth: “I am interested in dietetics because of the hands-on, problem-solving, relational career that works directly with educating and meeting patients where they are. With an exercise science degree, I have more of a holistic knowledge of the body, training, aging, lifespan and importance of exercise.”

After working as a student lab assistant to investigate different DNA extraction tactics related to tick pathogen research, Grettie is studying the body composition of collegiate basketball players through advanced medical imaging technologies.
