Get to Know a BoD Member

Get to Know a WAMDA BoD Member: Emily DeWolf RDN LDN (Nominating Committee)

Current place of employment and job title:
Bariatric Dietitian at Mercy Hospital

What inspired you to pursue a career in nutrition and dietetics?
Growing up I knew I wanted to be healthy. It has been and still is a journey! I love that being healthy and having a nutritious diet can look so different for everyone. From helping my dad learn about his diabetes diagnosis in high school to now helping my patients navigate weight loss, I find individualizing needs, preferences and culture can really help people be successful.

Why did you become a WAMDA member?
I have been a part of WAMDA since I was a dietetic intern! I see great value in meeting people in our field and learning from them. WAMDA has given me opportunities to get involved in local events and donate my time to meaningful charities.

What goals do you have for your career?
I hope to have a fulfilling career helping people prevent and manage noncommunicable diseases. I hope to help individualize healthy plans for people and help them reach their nutrition goals.

What are your favorite hobbies outside of work?
Outside of work I love to go to hiking. If anyone is looking for a cool day trip hike- I would highly recommend Mount Monadnock! I also enjoy baking with my niece in our matching apple aprons when it is too cold to hike!
