I received my Bachelor's Degree in Food and Nutrition from Iowa State University. I completed my dietetic internship at Regions Hospital in St. Paul, MN. and have been a Registered Dietitian for more than twenty years.
I have been published in Today's Dietitian and was one of Provider Magazine Shining Stars for 2013. I served as Nominations Chair for the Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. I have been a guest speaker for the National Dietary Managers Association and Iowa Foundation for Medical Care-Corporate Wellness.
I always want my patients to walk away knowing that they learned something new to use when managing their diabetes. My approach is to learn about their usual eating patterns and then jointly come up with a meal plan that is realistic for them to implement.
I relocated to Wisconsin with my husband and in our spare time we enjoy fishing, boating and hiking.
