What is the most surprising thing for people to learn about being an RD?

We aren’t judging what you eat – really!

 

What is your favorite part of your job?

The opportunity to learn every single day and to work alongside such smart, inspiring colleagues and clients.

 

What food is always on your mind and why?

The best of New England summer – freshly caught seafood, June strawberries and August tomatoes. Enjoy them while they last!

 

What are three things on your bucket list?

Hike the Appalachian trail; master the art and science of bread baking; and to visit Antarctica.

 

What’s the best piece of life advice you’ve received?

Be kinder than necessary. You never know what people are going through and you’ll never regret making that extra effort to be patient and kind.
