As a dietitian I educate and empower people to make choices that better serve their health, so they can look and feel their best from the inside out. In addition, I educate those wishing to do the same through the lens of direct sales knowing that health and wellness is about more than just food, but also the full environment in which we live.

My first job after graduate school and getting my RD was with a public health clinic in Oakland. I found that after that job it wasn’t too hard to get employment, and jobs with other clinics, retreat centers, and colleges followed.

I just want other dietitians to know that it’s okay to be different & follow your heart with your career path. If you don’t like a certain area, like say, clinical or food service, then don’t do it! Lean into what you enjoy and what you’re naturally good at. Play to those strengths & start setting yourself apart. The world is your oyster, and your career options are only limited by your own imagination.
