At Home Study Course- 3.5 CEU’s for RD’s:
I run an online course and coaching group with Mckenzie Caldwell at Feed Your Zest called “Nourish Your Knowledge”, which is space for dietitians and students, who are new to health at every size and intuitive eating, to explore the basics of the concepts and how to apply them to all areas of dietetics. It’s a hybrid course where participants can opt into group coaching calls and ask questions, debrief about the course content, and connect with like-minded peers and RD’s in a safe space. It’s a wonderful way to set the stage for supervision being a norm in our profession 🙂
- What is your current position?
I am the owner of a group private practice, Nourished Colorado, located in Denver, CO. I am fiercely passionate about food and body freedom and work with clients who struggle with eating disorders, disordered eating, and chronic dieting from a health at every size and intuitive eating lens. I feel incredibly honored to get to do this work and to hold space for others around a meaningful, impactful piece of life that touches every single human-food.
2. How did you get started in your career?
I started as a clinical dietitian at a Level 1 trauma center and floated around to all the areas. This was a fairly easy job to get out of school as I had worked as a diet technician for this hospital during my schooling. My position was PRN and quickly turned into full time. I knew it wasn’t ultimately what I wanted to do, but whatever position I’m in, I’m always happy to learn about people’s stories with food and hold space for them. My favorite roles at the hospital were covering outpatient diabetes and outpatient oncology. I thrive more in the role as the nutrition counselor which I got to practice in the outpatient setting vs being in the inpatient clinician role. When I was working inpatient clinical as a dietitian, I did find myself getting all my patients visited as quickly as I could so I could hurry home and work on my private practice website and blog.
3. What advice would you give to someone new to the field?
My advice for anyone new in the field is to be a sponge, and be a student for life. Immerse yourself in as much information as you can- podcasts, mentorship, books, peers doing the same work as you. Be open and vulnerable to all the things you don’t know, and that you can only learn by listening to your clients’ experiences and by those who have been in the field longer than you. At the same time, stay rooted in your own internal wisdom and intuition. Don’t be afraid to say I don’t know, and find out later.
If there are any specifics you would like to include, such as credentials, a photo, publications (link to your book and book cover photos), workshops, at home study courses, CE events, or link to your website, please let me know.
