“The best tip for being the most successful dietitian is to get VERY clear who it is you love to work with, and what it is you’re really good at. This applies for a job you love, or a business that thrives.”

“Find a mentor and try to emulate the tactics you see working in businesses OUTSIDE of nutrition. I’ve found following leaders in other non-nutrition arenas to be such a helpful advantage. I’m always studying what works in other industries and trying to apply that to how it might be feasible in my line of work.”

“My best kept secret is to be a preceptor for dietetics programs or to take opportunities when students ask to shadow you. Over the years, I’ve had many interns and students. They learn from me and I also learn from them. They’re more tech-savvy, in tune with their age group, and can provide great insight. So yes, being a preceptor is great! It’s my way of paying it forward.”
