I am originally from from Hendersonville, Tennessee. My bachelor’s degree was in Nutrition and Dietetics from The University of Tennessee at Knoxville. Go Vols!
I moved to St. Louis in 2000 because I matched at Saint Louis University for my dietetic internship. At SLU, I completed my dietetic internship and Masters degree in Nutrition and Physical Performance.
As a Registered Dietitian, I have worked with children and parents in a weight management program, counseled athletes on ways to improve performance with the right nutrition prescription, educated individuals who have diabetes in an outpatient clinic, and currently teach and act as the Undergraduate Director in the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics.
My students inspire me, and my job at SLU is a gift!
