VP of Communications: Jennifer Cuozzo

IMG_8031Jennifer Cuozzo was born in Las Vegas and lived here most of her life. After personally experiencing health-related life changing events she knew she wanted her career to be nutrition related and seized the opportunity to work for a supplement company. Being astounded by her own results and by others who made lifestyle changes that transformed their well-being, she recognized her path is to integrate her two passions of healthcare and teaching. Since being involved in UNLV’s SNDA she’s been grateful for the opportunities available to achieve success through community engagement, enhancing leadership skills, and becoming a future RD. As VP of Communications, Jennifer ensures students will be given the tools to maximize their own experiences. Ultimately, her goal is to one day own a private practice-wellness center and specialize in weight management and obesity with emphasis on diabetes and digestive health.

Treasurer: Jennifer Link-Cuadrado

Jennifer graduated from high school wanting to explore the other side of the country and moved to Las Vegas to be part of a more diverse community. After numerous sales and hospitality jobs she decided to go back to school for something that would make a difference in other people’s lives besides her own, which ultimately lead her to pursue a career in nutrition sciences. She is passionate about volunteering in the Las Vegas community and getting others involved in learning more about nutrition and the importance of preventative care. Her goal after college is to become a registered dietitian and possibly follow in her mother’s footsteps helping geriatric patients.
