Personal and Campaign Statements
With the Academy's first 100 years approaching, what do you see as opportunities for the future of the food and nutrition profession?

An area of opportunity & continued growth that I strongly believe in is demonstrating to the public that we are the credible practitioners in the field of nutrition. With so many claims of the title “nutritionist” or “expert” it is easy to see how the public can get confused and how difficult a task it is to not only uplift our credibility but to also protect populations from malpractice. My vision is for us to enhance our voices of credibility by leveraging our network, technology & exposure.

Campaign Statement- Write a campaign statement that will encourage people to vote for you

I want to help lead our profession into finding balance between standing strong with integrity and science while exciting populations with relatable and interesting information they can apply to their modern lives to add value.
