I received my BS in nutrition from Cornell University and completed a combined Master’s degree and Dietetic internship at Tufts University and the Frances Stern Nutrition Center in Boston.

I had a long career as a clinical nutrition manager, regional clinical manager, and dietetic internship director for Sodexo healthcare. For Sodexo Universities, I developed the “My Zone” personal pantry, and Sodexo’s Simple Servings; the allergen-safe resident dining option which won Food Managements’ 2013 Best Wellness Concept and the 2017 AllerTrain Best Food Allergy Innovation for Universities award. I’ve also worked with the Kent University dining team to develop the first completely gluten-free University dining venue at Prentice Hall.
