 Office Coordinator
Joined AM Nutrition Services, 2016

Attended:
Glendale Community College (GCC)

Enjoys about her job:
I love seeing the patient’s faces after they get done with their appointments with their Dietitians. They always leave with a smile on their face and they never leave without saying goodbye. It makes my day!

Does in her free time:
I love to go to the movies, I’m obsessed with books and I spend time with my family and friends.

Interesting Fact:
I am bug-phobic, anything insect or crawly-like! I am deadly afraid of all of them! I would rather hold a snake than a spider, literally!

Attended: 
Purdue University

Internship:
Iowa State University

Enjoys about her job:
I love being an RD because I get to see patients’ confusion about their diagnosis clear up during a session. Whether it be weight loss or improved lab values, knowing that I helped them develop the skills and confidence to reach their goals and improve their health is why I choose nutrition as my career. With the variety of patients and diagnoses we see, the days never get boring and I get to continuously learn as well.

Does in her free time:

I am a lover of the sun: you can frequently see me lounging by the pool with a book, probably by James Patterson. I’m from Indiana and running was a regular activity back home, however I plan to start hiking and enjoying the beautiful Arizona scenery more often. I also spend too much time browsing the aisles at Target, but at least I get in the extra steps!

Interesting Fact:
I am not a big fan of heights, but desperately want to go skydiving! I’ve never been out of the country (unfortunately!).

Attended:
University of Missouri


Internship:
University Hospital in Columbia, Dialysis Clinic Inc., Boone Hospital, MIZZOU Campus Dining Services, WIC Clinic

Enjoys about her job:

I enjoy watching patients accomplish what they never thought they could and building the confidence in them to do so. I really enjoy when I “click” with patients and they start believing that their health matters and that they have the ability to change. Also, having patients share their most intimate issues with eating and having the ability to help them makes my job rewarding.

Does in her free time:
Exploring the outdoors, playing ultimate Frisbee, making new jokes and puns, trying new things, and, of course, cooking and eating!

Interesting Fact:
I just adopted 2 strong-spirited orange female tabby cats named Wiley and Wiskey. In college, I travelled to Italy and Israel and I hope to go back one day!

Enjoys about her job:
What I enjoy about being a Registered Dietitian is that I am able to meet people where they are in their life and help them meet their nutrition and health goals. I love educating individuals and families about healthy lifestyle changes.

Does in her free time:
I enjoy spending time with my boxer Chatta, she is such a character. Also, I enjoy spending time with my family, especially my grandchildren. I do try to get to the beach at least once a year!

I really like going to the gym and lifting weights! I also love to travel and spend quality time with my guy, friends, and family.

Attended:
Arizona State University


Internship:
University of Northern Colorado

Enjoys about her job:
I love that I am learning something new every day! No day is the same. Although I’ve studied different diagnoses throughout my schooling, applying the knowledge into practice is an entirely different ball game. This makes the job challenging, yet rewarding.

Does in her free time:
I’m very much a family girl. I love to go with my family to the movies, shopping, or even to the lakes up North! We go for the day, just to escape the heat, fish, and enjoy each other's company! I also love spending time with my fiancé! He's my best friend, so anything we do together is the best.

Interesting Fact:
I love to sing! I used to sing competitively in high school, and would LOVE to get back into it. I now mostly just sing in the car, but I'm not one to sing on command... I'm too shy, and only do it when I think nobody's listening!
