From early on in college, I've been drawn to the food service field of dietetics.  While my peers longed for careers in a hospital setting, I had my eyes on the shiny stainless steel of industrial kitchen equipment.  I didn’t know it then, but for me, school nutrition would come to be the perfect mix of problem solving, data analysis, associate training, wellness promotion, and nutrition education.

Over the past decade, I’ve worked as the menu planning dietitian for programs as small as a single charter school to as large as more than 150 school site kitchens.  Since the introduction of the new meal pattern, I’ve been involved in the process of menu certification of over a dozen programs here in North Carolina.

When I’m not helping schools make sense of the crazy world of Child Nutrition, you can find me around Apex with my boyfriend Jim and my basset hound Marshall Dillon.
