Interview – Kate Janish


Kate Janisch (2009) completed her Masters in Public Health from Northeastern University and is a registered dietician. Previously she worked in the food services department at Brookline Public Schools acting as an administrative assistant. She also was a research assistant at Northeastern for the Public and Population Health studies and interned with the nutrition office at Community Servings in Jamaica Plains.

Why did you choose this major, and does/did it seem like the right major for you? Why?

After trying to switch into the Health Sciences major I found the Human Services department which I saw as a good path to preparing me to become a registered dietician. I was allowed to specialize in health sciences while taking clinical counseling courses. Human services opened the door into the non-profit realm with my coop and internship, which I never would have found otherwise.
