As a wife and mother of two working full time - I can best describe myself as, "busy"! But, I enjoy being busy and love my personal and professional duties. I have been very fortunate to enjoy a varied career in dietetics, working clinical and then more in the community nutrition education field. I am embracing the challenge of teaching at the college level and serving as the Dietetics Internship Director at SDSU. My objectives primarily focus on being the best that I can be personally and professionally!
