By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Cassandra is a PhD candidate at the University of Connecticut studying exercise science and nutrition. Originating from Northern British Columbia, she received her MS in Human Nutrition and Metabolism in 2004, and her BS in Nutrition and Food Science with distinction, in 2002 from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. She will graduate in 2008 and will become certified as a Registered Dietitian (RD) in 2009. Her main research interests are low-carbohydrate nutrition, dietary fatty acids, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, weight-loss, female-specific nutrition and training, and the female athlete triad. Her PhD dissertation project is exploring the ideal fatty acid composition of a weight-maintaining low-carbohydrate diet though a highly-controlled feeding intervention.

Aside from her educational endeavors, Cassandra is the student representative for the International Society of Sports Nutrition, where she is helping to refine the Certified Sports Nutrition Certification, (CISSN) and co-coordinating the regional and annual meetings.

Once she is done her educational path, Cassandra plans on pursuing research at a top-level research university, focusing on low-carbohydrate nutrition and female-specific nutrition and training. She also will work through her own business doing nutritional & fitness consulting and writing for main-stream magazines and books.
