My name is Erica, and I am a recent graduate from a combined Master's program at Benedictine University located in the suburbs of Chicago. This program allowed me to obtain my Master's in Nutrition and Wellness while also completing the appropriate supervised practice work for my dietetic internship.
Throughout my internship, I have gained tremendous experience in many areas such as clinical, long term care, food service management, retail foodservice, WIC, school nutrition, assistant living programs, and even managing a nutrition counseling service at Benedictine University. In addition, I have experience in developing curriculum, modifying recipes and menus, giving nutrition related presentations, creating educational modules, preparing in-services, and writing newsletters.
Furthermore, I am a certified personal trainer and have my Serv Safe certificate for food safety and sanitation.
