After receiving her bachelor's degree in Nutrition and Food Sciences from Montclair State University, Victoria wanted to follow a path to educate people on Nutrition. She strives as a Nutrition Educator for SNAP-Ed by helping communities of several age groups, teaching them the importance of consuming healthier foods and being physically active. 

A New Jersey native with a passion for helping people, Zakiya got her start at College of Saint Elizabeth, where she received her bachelor's degree in Foods and Nutrition. Currently, she is a nutrition educator with the SNAP-Ed program, where she teaches cooking and fitness classes to children and young adults.
