Rachel Ochoa Segura is to be congratulated for earning the Master of Science in Holistic Nutrition degree with the Summa cum Laude designation.

Her education at Hawthorn has allowed her to combine her science background, love for cooking and backyard gardening to develop a new career. Rachel plans to open a holistic nutrition practice specializing in using food as medicine. Her thesis is entitled, Anxiety and Genetics: Understanding How a Defective Methylation Cycle Can Lead to an Imbalance of Serotonin and Dopamine. All the best to you, Rachel!
