Jessica Seltz, Tufts University Master of Science/Dietetic Internship, Class of 2021.  As President of the MSDA, I hope to create a community that supports and empowers  students of all backgrounds to pursue a career in nutrition and dietetics and provides them with the resources they need to become future leading professionals.

Kelly Siverhus, Tufts University Master of Science/Dietetic Internship, Class of 2021 As Vice President of the MSDA, I plan to provide nutrition and dietetics students with valuable opportunities, resources and a supportive community, that will enable them to reach their full potential as future professionals in the field. 


Emily Burrows, Framingham State University BS- Dietetics, Class of Spring 2021. As Treasurer of the MSDA, I have aspirations to successfully manage the finances of the club and assist wherever possible to enable us to spread awareness of the field of Nutrition and Dietetics as being the most credible source of nutrition information. I hope to engage and network with others in the field to obtain valuable information that will broaden my scope of Dietetics while creating an environment that enables Nutrition & Dietetics students from all backgrounds to be successful within the profession.

Social Media  & Marketing Chair

Lily Spik, Boston University BS-Dietetics, Class of Fall 2021. As Social Media & Marketing Chair, I hope to make the field more recognized by the general public, so when students think of careers in health, they consider dietetics, understand it’s specifics, and can differentiate it from other nutrition-related career paths.
