Dr. Pamela Smith
Pam Smith appreciates that the classes at Keene State are small enough that faculty and students can get to know each other. She also likes that the College values advising and mentoring of students. She hopes her students leave her classes knowing they have support and encouragement in their paths to becoming professionals in the field of nutrition and wellness. She especially likes to follow their success while they’re at KSC and after graduation in dietetic internships, graduate school, and the world of work and service.
