Charlotte Caperton-Kilburn, MS, RD, CSSD, LDN
Dietitian in Private Practice, NFL Performance – Nutrition For Life
How did you get started in your career?
During my specialty rotation, I interned with a sports dietitian, who had a private practice in Eating Disorders. She required me to learn about eating disorders aspart of the rotation. I was hooked on working with clients with eating disorders and they became the majority of my practice.
What advice would you give to someone new to the field?
Attend any workshop that you can find related to eating disorders in order to understand the complexity of the work you will do. Understand that eating disorders treatment isn’t just about a meal plan. Ask those who you know and respect in the field questions. Make sure you have someone who can provide supervision to you.
