Conversation 18:  The Story, Journey and Passion of Registered Dietitian, Jenny Norgaard, RD, LD

“Food is Medicine. We live in a society where there are so many resources for people to reach out and get help to be healthy. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Keep it simple because it is always the answer.” - Jenny Norgaard, RD, LD

My conversation today is with Jenny Norgaard, RD, LD

Jenny and I go way back to meeting each other during our internship and have shared many great experiences we still discuss and laugh about today, as well as a lifelong friendship.  She initially was going to go into nursing and decided after a conversation with a registered dietitian in her hometown, she was hooked. After experiencing a variety of careers in the dietetics field, Jenny currently feels at home and is very passionate about the preventative side of health and wellness.

Please enjoy my conversation with Jenny.

Conversation 17:  The Story, Journey and Passion of Registered Dietitian, Kathryn Thompson, RDN, LD

“Finding the balance of what you eat and what you do is very important for someone recovering from an eating disorder because it can become an issue for compulsive exercise. When I teach multiple (fitness) classes a day, you won’t see me going all out. I am the instructor and I’m their (participants) biggest cheerleader in the room. That balance, I’ve found that and it works for me because I have to be very aware of things in my life. ” - Kathryn Thompson, RDN, LD

My conversation today is with Kathryn Thompson, RDN, LD

Kathryn is someone I have had the joy of collaborating with on different projects involving school nutrition and health. I remember the first day I met Kathryn and her smile and energy were absolutely contagious. As I have gotten to know her over the years, we developed a great friendship and I learned more about her journey to being a registered dietitian nutritionist. She has had an eating disorder and opens up about she realized she needed treatment. Her biggest influence in her decision to become a dietitian, was discovered during her personal recovery.  

Please enjoy my conversation with Kathryn.

Conversation 16: The Story, Journey and Passion of Registered Dietitian, Courtney Slater RD, LD, CDE

“I was diagnosed with diabetes when I was 5. I have always had to know the information that’s in food. When I was 17, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease then I started having to eat gluten-free. My whole life has revolved around food one way or another.  If I can go into diabetes education and if I can help prevent one kid from making those same mistakes that I made (as a child with diabetes), then I am doing my job.” - Courtney Slater, RD, LD, CDE

My conversation today is with Courtney Slater, RD, LD, CDE


Courtney has a strong personal connection to nutrition because of her own personal experiences and struggles with diabetes and celiac disease.  She initially started her career path in education and teaching because she loved working with kids and along the way she realized she wanted to educate others as a registered dietitian. She is now meshing her 2 passions, kids and diabetes education. Her dietitian journey, so far, is very inspiring and she openly shares her insight on living and help others, especially children, with these diseases.

Please enjoy my conversation with Courtney.

Conversation 15:  The Story, Journey and Passion of Registered Dietitian, Adria Huseth

“Don’t be surprised if someone tells you that a business degree is a good with dietetics or a psychology degree because I think having a dual degree or  other focus definitely makes you more marketable (as a dietitian)” - Adria Huseth, RD, LD, CPT

My conversation today is with Adria Huseth, RD, LD, CPT

Adria took a little different route to being a dietitian. She was not quite sure what she wanted to do in college and obtained a business degree. With strong family ties to health and the medical field, she always found the human body amazing and knew working in the medical field was in her future. After working in marketing research, she decided her love for the human body and food was her future and became a registered dietitian. In her current job with the National Pork Board, she has successfully combined business and dietetics as well as becoming a new mom and Certified Personal Trainer.

Please enjoy my conversation with Adria.
