Outpatient and Wellness Dietitian - I believe that wellness can play a huge role in how well we enjoy life and strives to provide better wellness for all whom I encounter. I currently work as an outpatient and wellness dietitian. I am currently the RD for YEAH! – Youth Engaged in Activities for Health, a community program for kids 5-18 years. I also work as an RD for Employee and Consumer Wellness, helping coworkers and local company employees reach their best wellness potential. Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to speak at various local businesses and organizations, provide nutrition and health information at community health fairs as well as local TV news, radio spots, and newspaper articles. In my spare time I enjoy trying out new gourmet recipes, four wheeling, sewing, camping and hiking, remodeling our vintage home, water sports, running and most of all playing with my husband and 3 young kids.
