AAA: Crafting a Career from a Base of Volunteerism with Libby Bar-Kochba (MSHN Graduate 2017)

Not everyone who studies (in any field) chooses to open their own business. Many of us study for the sheer joy of learning, or to add to a list of services we may already offer, and this has been the case for Hawthorn MSHN graduate Libby Bar-Kochba. Libby joins us to discuss how a lifetime of work in fields both in and outside of nutrition, as well as volunteer work, have prepared her to provide services to many people. Libby believes this mindset is a result of having studied Holistic Nutrition at Hawthorn University. She will discuss how one may take the skills learned at Hawthorn and apply them to many areas within the world of health, nutrition and other fields.
