Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare

Registered Dietitian, Diabetes Education

I work in outpatient nutrition therapy persuading patients with pre- diabetes, type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes to pursue diet changes. I am also the lead dietitian for cardiac rehabilitation, a virology clinic for HIV/AIDS patients and the eating disorder populations our hospital serves.

I am currently looking for new ways to improve quality, cost-effectiveness and promote the role of nutrition within our health system. Nutrition Services is sometimes is often an overlooked department because we deal with "soft" skills and data - behavior change, motivational interviewing, daily food intake. I see the impact we make each day in patients' lives and I want healthcare to embrace it and USE it.

Career

University of Missouri

Master in Health Administration, Master in Health Informatics

I am working to achieve a dual Masters degree in Health Administration and in Health Informatics. After working for an insurance company, I became enthralled with the variety of aspects affecting care delivery and outcomes. I have already fallen in love with the 'big problems' facing our health care systems today and I want to rise to meet the challenge.

Strive for Wellness is the wellness program within MCHCP tasked with improving plan member health behaviors to drive reduced plan member risk and cost. During my 2 years there, I was promoted 2 times. I created over 50 unique handouts, videos and targeted email messages that reached 100,000 plan members weekly. Our strategy centered on showing our health plan population how to engage in healthy behaviors.

Career

University of Missouri

Bachelor of Science, Nutritional Sciences (Dietetics)

When I went to college the only thing I could think about was nutrition. At the time, I knew I wanted to help people improve their health and I loved to talk, read, and write about food. It was a challenging experience. I worked as a full-time student and held full-time clinical hours as a registered dietitian to-be, but it taught me how to rest and to reach higher.
