I'm a 21 year old career changer. I'd like to pursuit a career in the allied health field. I love dietetics, but have also been encouraged by my counselor to look into SLP and other health fields.

This is what I know:

- Can easily communicate with people
- Great at motivating others
- Want to have a rewarding job: helping people and actually being able to see the improvement
- low stress, yet good pay
- good job growth (opportunities)
- constant change is a must.. routines and monotony are a huge don't

I'd like to know your opinions: would SLP be a good idea? if you know about dietetics, what do you think about it? Any other allied health fields that might be suitable for me?

Thanksss :xf:

yes yes and yes. i dont know much about dietetics, but all my freinds from undergrad who were diet majors ended up changing their major, not getting a good job, or going to grad school for something different
