What inspired you to become a dietitian?
What books have shaped you and your practice the most?
Michael Pollan: Food Rules: I love to read through this book and remind myself to eat what we as humans were intended to eat. It helps to guide me towards are more natural, whole food approach when eating.
Gary Chapman: The Five love languages: This is a wonderful book explaining the different ways people give and receive love. After reading this book you will be able to understand the people in your life.
501 Must Visit Destinations: I LOVE to travel. I studied abroad with Semester at Sea in college and circumnavigated the globe with 1,000 students from across the country. We saw countries in South America, Africa, Asia and North America. My parents have also lived in Europe so I was able to visit many European countries. I use this book to cross off places I have been and dream of places I want to go.
American Dietetic Association Complete Food and Nutrition Guide: I find this to be a comprehensive guide of food and nutrition. I have referred to it many times over the years.
