PrOVES Staff Bios 2013



Amanda Crane

Senior Staff

Hey everyone! My name is Amanda and I am going to be a senior here at UNH. I’m a Nutrition major in the Dietetics program and I am hoping to become a Registered Dietitian. As you could probably guess, I love everything that has to do with food from shopping at the grocery store, to baking cookies and cupcakes. I like doing other things too though such as exercising, being outside, watching movies and spending time with friends and family. I’m involved with lots of organizations here on campus such as SPIN (Students Promoting Information about Nutrition), Alpha Chi Omega, Alternative Break Challenge, Student Nutrition Association and Order of Omega. This will be my second year as Senior Staff and my fourth year with the PrOVES program. Needless to say, I love this program and am so excited for another year to get started! Enjoy the rest of the summer, looking forward to meeting all of you!
