Kiran Bains is a Registered Dietitian with a Masters degree graduate in applied nutrition and owner of a food marketing consulting business: and a food entrepreneurship workshop program:

Kiran and Kimberly connected through LinkedIn and decided to record our introductory call as a conversation starter for younger professionals. Kiran has a passion for introducing nutrition science majors to a wider variety of career opportunities than are typically described. She also has a passion for marketing and understanding how marketing teams could leverage nutrition expertise and how nutrition professionals could market their messages to engage consumers.

While this conversation is personal in the sense of talking about one individual’s career opportunities, it’s also an example of how our friendships and network can be useful for connections beyond our own career advancement. I also share some strong opinions about personal brand awareness, because with nutrition backgrounds, it’s vital to maintain brand integrity when associating with product brands.
