Going back to school isn’t an easy thing to do, especially when you’ve been out of it a while and making a living.
It’s even harder when you have to do it on nights and weekends while doing a day job that has nothing to do with the field that you’re studying.
But it’s doable. And Brooke Erickson is proof that it can be done!
Brooke has been interested in nutrition and healthy living most of her life, but she didn’t start out pursuing a career in this field. Instead, she made a living in events planning and operations.
Fast forward to her early thirties when she decided to go back to school, finish her degree and get the training she needed.
Today, she is a functional nutritionist based in Washington, doing the kind of work in an area that has always meant something personal to her.
As a functional nutritionist, I help people identify underlying imbalances in the body that can be causing systemic health issues. Through nutrition and lifestyle changes, my clients have the opportunity to achieve optimal wellness and to feel their absolute best again!
