Halley: I grew up in Huntsville, AL and went to Mississippi State University for undergrad (Go Dawgs!). I had a great experience there and after I graduated, spent a year in Salerno, Italy doing an internship with the ministry I was involved with in college, sharing my love of Jesus and food throughout Italy. It was the best year of my life! I returned home to Alabama to do my dietetic internship at UAB, graduated in June, and started working at a hospital here in Birmingham, doing outpatient nutritional counseling mixed with some clinical nutrition. I love my job and I love the extra time I have now without studying, so I am excited to spread the love of oatmeal.
Vasu: I grew up in Baton Rouge, LA and went to Louisiana State University for undergrad (GEAUX TIGERS!). Living in a cajun town with an Indian family, I was able to enjoy and grow up around a wide variety of delicious and spicy food. I then moved to Birmingham, AL for my Master of Public Health degree then continued on to complete a dietetic internship. I currently work in a pediatric hospital in Birmingham and love the work that I do. I look forward to sharing recipes from my childhood and creations of my own.
