Swift explained that for her, supplements aren’t just a part of the job.
“I actively use supplements, I've used them for decades. I've always seen their benefits. And so when I took the position at FDA and Office of Dietary Supplement Programs, I was very excited because it was the first time that I could actually move back into that space,” said Swift. “And when I got to FDA, I really understood exactly how nuanced that space was, having gone from being a consumer and understanding the science to actually seeing the regulatory side.”
Whether it is work or home life, Swift said she has always taken the ‘why not?’ approach.
“I haven't seen being a female as being a barrier or I haven't seen being a mom or being a single mom as a barrier. I honestly think that you can do anything. I don't see limitations. My favorite question is ‘why not?’ And my children are the reason that I do everything that I do–boys or girls. I want them to see that with hard work, you can essentially achieve anything you want to.”
