What do you find most exciting about working on the WIC team at Open Door?
The most exciting thing about working in WIC is that I get the opportunity to learn and meet different people as every experience is different. I also love being part of a program that helps and makes a difference in people’s life.

Can you share something about the WIC program that people in the community might not know?
What people might not know is that the WIC Program also assists with breastfeeding support, counseling and a breast pump if needed.

If you could only give one piece of advice about nutrition to the general community, what would it be?
Take care of your body by having a balanced nutrition, exercise regularly and don’t forget to drink your water daily as it does have many benefits for our body.
