Conversation 75: The Story, Journey and Passion of Amy Giffin, MS, RD, CD, SNS
“I think working in schools is just great to be able to feed kids and feel good about it, especially the ones that are in need. These are the kids that are relying on school meals for the majority of their food, which is about 50% of our kids. It is good because it allows us opportunities to provide those free meals.” - Amy Griffin, MS, RD, CD, SNS
Today’s conversation is with Amy Giffin, a registered dietitian with a passion for gardening, food, cooking and cheese.
In April, I got the amazing opportunity to head to the Wisconsin Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and speak with a group of upcoming RD’s. This connection happened because Amy spoke at the Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics annual meeting a few years ago and she remembered me from that meeting. Amy was born and raised in Wisconsin with her father having a long career in the cheese business. She initially thought she wanted to be a food scientist but quickly fell in love with dietetics early in her college career. She has had a variety of jobs so far and always seems to come back to food service management as her specialty. Amy and I took a few moments during the busy WAND annual meeting that she planned and she is preparing to serve as president this upcoming year.
Please enjoy my conversation with Amy.
