A little about me: I have worked in the nutrition industry for over 9 years, including five years working in federal nutrition programs. I have extensive experience working with school food service directors in program operations, compliance, and technology solutions for program accountability and financial solvency. My interest in therapeutic diets has also given me specialized knowledge of accommodation requirements for students with special dietary needs. My degree is in Human Nutrition from Arizona State University and I am currently based out of Fort Collins, Colorado.
