Current place of employment and job title: Veterans’ Home in Holyoke – Dietitian II

What inspired you to pursue a career in nutrition and dietetics?I chose to pursue a career in Dietetics because of my personal love for food and fitness. I have many great memories growing up cooking/baking with family. I also have a passion to help others feel good (I was previously an aesthetician for 8 years!) and I love being able to do that through food and nutrition.

Why did you become a WAMDA member? I became a WAMDA board member to connect with other local dietitians as well as to get involved in and support nutrition-related events in my area.

What goals do you have for your career? My career goals are to take up new leadership opportunities and expand my professional network. In addition, I think it’s important to continue to develop new skills and stay up to date on current trends.

What are your favorite hobbies outside of work? Outside of work I love to stay active at the gym or outside running and hiking. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family – Exploring new breweries and restaurants!
