Dietitian; Food and Fitness Consultant
Last active: 3 months ago
In January 2011 I completed my dietetic internship and my Masters Degree in Human Nutrition at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. I am now at UGA getting my PhD in food science with an emphasis on sensory evaluation of foods. I have created educational materials on topics as diverse as healthy cooking, vitamin supplementation, cooking for children, and bariatric surgery.
Prior to my work in Baltimore, I taught baking and cooking classes for two years on the collegiate and professional level. By combining my undergraduate degree in psychology, my masters in nutrition, and my PhD in food science, I aim to convey to the public a well-rounded view on topics like the psychology of eating behavior, the effect of industrial food processing on nutrition, and the balance between being satisfied and being healthy.
Along with my dedication to food and nutrition, I have other talents that I hope to make use of in a job environment. I initially studied art as an undergraduate and have since put my talent to use in graphic design, technical illustration, and other creative works. In the last six years I have also had experience with computer programming, flash animation, and voice over acting. Please let me know if you would like to see portfolio materials relating to any of these skills.
