KRNC Student Spotlight: Emily Nock

Emily Nock
Emily Nock

Emily Nock grew up in Grand Junction, Colorado. She is a second-year master’s student in the Food Science & Human Nutrition department with a focus in Nutrition.

She is currently working on a research project in Dr. Charlene Van Buiten’s lab on the protective effects of berry polyphenols for those with Celiac Disease, which can improve symptoms when gluten is ingested.

She will be starting her Dietetic Internship in the CSU CMPD program this fall and once she becomes a Registered Dietitian, she would love to work with and counsel clients who exhibit disordered eating behaviors with an approach that aligns with Intuitive Eating and Health At Every Size® (HAES®).

Emily says “My favorite parts of working in the KRNC has been shadowing the Registered Dietitians in their client sessions and discussing the sessions with them one-on-one. These experiences have been extremely helpful for me to visualize what type of RD I want to be and how to approach different client concerns. I appreciate the time and energy the RDs give to students in order to foster our growth and development!”
