Area: HS - NUTR   

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 and an accredited practising (sic) dietitian in Australia, and a member of both The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, and the Dietitians Association of Australia. 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, Twinsburg and Geauga campuses, and then moved to Olympia, WA in 2010 where I worked as a renal dietitian in a large, hospital-based dialysis unit. Since January 2012 I have resided in Melbourne, Australia where I continue teaching on-line classes for the Nutrition Program at KSU.
