Area: HS - NUTRdlavanty@kent.edu
I earned a B.A. in Psychology from Marymount University (Arlington, VA) and an M.S. in Family and Consumer Science (emphasis: Human Nutrition) from New Mexico State University. I am a registered dietitian, a certified dietitian (throught the state of Washington), and member of the American Dietetic Association. I worked as a clinical dietitian at the Cleveland Clinic before joining the faculty at Kent State University in 2006. I taught full time from 2006-2010 in the Nutrition Program at the Kent and Geauga campuses, and then moved to Olympia, WA in 2010. Since my move across country, I have continued teaching on-line classes for the Nutrition Program at KSU. I also currently work as a renal dietitian in a large, hospital-based dialysis unit.
