The industry is as wide open as it has ever bene.  A dietitian can do so much now from nutrigenomics to social media and marketing consulting.  For my area of management, I see a lot of the new generation of dietitians wanting to grow beyond the nutrition department.  I think you will see more RDs in senior management and executive positions with multi-department responsibilities and executive positions other than food and nutrition.

I work as a clinical dietitian in a long term care facility. I initially started working with the elderly as I have always had a soft spot in my heart for the older population as they are just as vulnerable as children; all they truly want is someone to talk to and someone to listen.

I work in a doctor’s office providing the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit. Additionally, I provide MNT (Medical Nutrition Therapy) for Diabetes and Chronic Kidney Disease. These services are covered under insurance. For a small fee any of our patients can see the dietitian, so I am highly involved in providing nutritional interventions for those with chronic diseases. I also teach classes and am working closely with our medical director to design an integrative functional medicine program for our office.

When they ask I like to explain the typical tasks of a clinical dietitian such as nutrition support, charting, and educations. I also love explaining to people the ways that I spread nutrition information and why brands value dietitians. People’s ears seem to perk up when I say I do television appearances.

I started BUD in 2014 at a time when it felt like there was a lot of negativity and criticism about dietitians. I regularly saw groups/social media accounts and pages, individuals and the media accusing dietitians of lacking integrity. Having been a dietitian for almost two decades at that point I knew that our profession deserved better treatment and a more positive space to encourage each other and celebrate our accomplishments.
