Nutritionist
Specialty: 
Nutrition

My expertise is in disordered eating behaviors of adult patients with obesity and other obesity-related metabolic disorders.  I received a PhD in Nutritional Sciences from South Dakota State University, a Doctorate in Clinical Nutrition from the University of Medicine & Dentistry Newark, New Jersey and a Masters in Public Health from the University of Minnesota. With an interested in obesity research, I completed a sabbatical in Clinical Research Management at the National Institute of Health, Bethesda, Maryland in 2012.  I joined the Bariatric & Metabolic Institute -RCMC in 2015, after a diverse career in nutrition. Some of my most challenging experiences involved working on national nutrition guidelines as a lead evidence analyst.  My goal is to continue with obesity research in helping patients who suffer from mild to severe obesity.  I am a fourth-generation South Dakotan from a farm family at Hurley, SD.  My husband and I relocated to the Black Hills 30+ years ago.  Looking back, its been a great professional journey, in addition to raising a family on a small ranch and enjoy a herd of Norwegian Fjord horses.
