About Daina Rasutis, MS, NTM

Daina graduated with an MS in Civil Engineering with a focus on sustainability but found herself most drawn to work related to food and environmentalism. Her interest in food and holistic health led her to NTI, from where she graduated as a Nutrition Therapist Master in January 2021 and is currently running her nutrition therapy practice, Table to Crave. Daina also works as an Admissions Counselor at NTI.
