Career Path

After changing direction in college from Computer Science to Dietetics, I always felt that the synergy between the two can improve. I have often encouraged use of and implemented software in most of my early positions in healthcare food management leadership. I enhanced clinical knowledge with software implementations of nutritional assessments in both positions in acute care and then long-term post-acute care, receiving an Innovator Award for my work at one organization to enhance department technology processes with software usage. In my current role, I manage the operations of the nutrition software team of developers, engineers and support. I teach/train and demonstrate the features related to nutrition in medical record software and provide subject matter expertise to enhance and develop a suite of products.
