Abbreviated Bio

I’ve been at the U of M as an Academic Adviser since 2004, working with students in all tracks of the Nutrition major.  As an Academic Adviser, I  facilitate student success by defining and implementing proactive strategies that help students stay on track to fulfill their educational goals.  This includes advising students on university policies and procedures, program and degree requirements, and related academic matters.


I am a Registered Dietitian with a background in clinical nutrition.  I attended The College of St. Catherine in St. Paul, MN (currently called St. Catherine University), and completed my Dietetic Internship at The Massachusetts General Hospital (Boston, MA), then worked at the Mayo Medical Center (Rochester, MN)  for 10 years.  I specialized in Nutrition Support, Weight Loss, and Pediatric Diabetes.  While in Rochester, I completed a Masters in Public Health Nutrition through the U of M School of Public Health, Twin Cities Campus.
