“I wanted to be a dietitian since I was 13 years old. The caption under my photo in my high school year book says, “future dietitian.” I could not have chosen a better profession.”

I was a nutrition professor at Georgia State University for 30 years, teaching undergraduate and graduate students in nutrition and health, nutrition and aging, sports nutrition, medical nutrition therapy, and nutrition and the media. I conduct research on nutrient intakes of older adults and collegiate athletes. My research has been published in top tier peer-reviewed journals. I also gained administrative experience in leadership positions as a department chair and as an associate dean for academics. Before joining the faculty at Georgia State I worked as a clinical dietitian in cardiac rehabilitation in Atlanta.
