The Story, Journey and Passion of Registered Dietitian, Sherry Adams RD, LMNT
“I wanted to do something more medical and I had a half crazy notion of going to med school at one point, but that didn’t last very long. I really loved working in ICU, have been a Certified Nutrition Support Clinician®(CNSC®) and have taken the test 4 times. Recently, I decided to make the jump (out of clinical) and work with physicians out of the hospital and caring for people in the home setting on enteral and parenteral support.” - Sherry Adams, RD, LMNT
My conversation today is with Sherry Adams, RD, LMNT
Sherry Adams is not only a registered dietitian and but a nutrition support expert. Sherry was my clinical preceptor during my internship and taught me everything I know about tube feedings and TPN’s. She also believed in me so much as an intern, she offered me my first registered dietitian job. She has such a special place in my heart. I knew Sherry’s dietitian journey was interesting, but it was wonderful to sit down with her and listen to her story.
The Story, Journey and Passion of Registered Dietitian, Kristyn Kamrath RD, LMNT
“I have an innate curiosity about everything. If I don’t know about it, I want to learn about it and I’m still that what today. If I’m going to speak about something or be asked about something, I want to know everything I can about it so I can be a reliable and credible source.” - Kristyn Kamrath RD, LMNT
My conversation today is with Kristyn Kamrath, RD, LMNT Service Leader Clinical Nutrition at Nebraska Methodist Health System
Kristyn and I go way back to the early 2000s when we were both newer registered dietitians. Kristyn started with Creighton University Medical Center as a bariatric dietitian while I was working as a clinical dietitian. She has a great story of moving from Nebraska to Florida for her internship, working in Florida and navigating the registered dietitian professional landscape in a very unique way.
So please kick back, relax and enjoy my conversation with Registered Dietitian, Kristyn Kamrath.
Conversation 2: The Story, Journey and Passion of Registered Dietitian, Erin Hoisington RD, LD
“Throughout school and even in the short time I have been out of school, some of my philosophies have changed and shifted and which I think is a good thing. And I hope that they continue to do that because I think that’s only the responsible thing to do. The more we learn about, the more experiences we have to gleen from those (experiences) and form our own opinions.” - Erin Hoisington, RD, LD
My conversation today is with Erin Hoisington, RD, LD Long Term Care and Consultant Dietitian for Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) Living Communities
My guest today is Erin Hoisington, a registered dietitian who chose dietetics as a second career a little bit later in life, similar to myself. When I first met Erin, she was reaching out to me to ask about what she needed to do to get the schooling necessary to become a registered dietitian. Erin’s first degree is in agricultural education and teaching But she had such a strong passion for dietetics, she took the leap and started completely over. Erin and I talk about going back to school and her first job as a registered dietitian.
Please enjoy my conversation with Erin..
The Story, Journey and Passion of Jena Hunt, RD, LD , Diabetes Education Coordinator for Central Iowa Healthcare
Jena and I really connected while she was my intern. I was looking forward to catching up with her on where she is in her life and her career. When she completed her internship, Jena wasn’t really sure where dietetics would take her, but she knew family was the most important to her and her job would follow. She knew during her internship she enjoyed working in community nutrition. She started out her career as a registered dietitian for the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) in Marshalltown, Iowa and realized her passion was working with expecting and lactating mothers. As she was evaluating her life/work balance, she was found her second job as a Diabetes Education Coordinator a better fit.
Please enjoy my conversation with Jena.
