Conversation 69: The Story, Journey and Passion of Liz Dunn, MS, RD, LDN
“I really loved science and thought I wanted to go into pharmacy research. It was after my car accident, when I had my spinal cord injury, they said because I was in such good shape that helped me recover from the surgeries a lot better. It was then I thought prevention was a lot better, was what I was interested in and I started looking into dietetics. In my internship program, which was very clinically focused, we had about ½ a lecture on spinal cord injuries. Most people never learn anything about it, so I definitely want to spread the word. ” - Liz Dunn, MPH, RDN
Today’s conversation is with Liz Dunn, a registered dietitian with a passion for sports nutrition, being active and wheelchair rugby.
This is another episode of where I sing the praises of Instagram and how it brings people together. I started following Liz last year and I remember the first photo of hers I saw. It was of her with holding her paper stating she had passed the RD exam. But what really caught my attention was she said in the caption “I may not be where I hoped to be at this point, but that’s ok.” I remember thinking, neither am I and you know what, it is ok! There is so much more to Liz’s story and I am happy we were able to have such a great conversation.
Please enjoy my conversation with Liz.
