Conversation 35: The Story, Journey and Passion of Dorothy McClure, RD, LD

“I was used to trying to help fix people and mend them (as a clinical dietitian), all these high risk things and then all of a sudden, I come to long term care and it was really hard for me at first. To think about that people are coming there to live their life out and maybe not go home, that was really hard. But, I enjoyed listening to their stories and learning from them and all their past experiences. ” - Dorothy McClure, RD, LD

My conversation today is with Registered Dietitian Dorothy McClure.

My conversation today has brought a lot of light to long term care for me. I was once also a clinical dietitian and it was something that was never on my radar. Dorothy has opened my eyes to all the wonderful things long term care offers for registered dietitians and for the clients. Dorothy is not only a registered dietitian, but she manages a staff of clinical dietitians, works as an integral part of a team of other allied health professionals, is an adjunct professor, is a certified Serv Safe instructor, and knows the ins and outs of many differet aspects of food service management. She has had quite the career (so far) and I hope this podcast shares with you a new world of job opportunities as a registered dietitian.

Please enjoy my conversation with Dorothy.

Conversation 34: The Story, Journey and Passion of Amber Pankonin, MS, RD, LMNT

“It gets lonely. I think that’s another thing about being an entrepreneur, you’ve got so much stress, with launching a business and doing all these different things and there is that social aspect. You don’t have the camaraderie you once had. That’s where I really turned to social media and building those relationships online with other dietitians who were doing similar work and I felt like I have some community here.” - Amber Pankonin, MS, RD, LMNT

My conversation today is with Registered Dietitian Amber Pankonin.

My conversation today is with one of my favorite boss ladies. She owns StirList and is known as RD Amber in our social media world. Amber is passionate about food, nutrition science and agriculture as a Nutrition & Agriculture Communications Consultant and adjunct instructor. In her bio she writes, “when I grow up, I’d like to be a photographer or maybe a backup dancer because Amber has always had a creative side. She initially was a music major in college. Amber and I talk about her non-traditional route to dietetics and her first jobs, how she became inspired to own her own business, recipe development and how important the art of communication is for dietitians.

Please enjoy my conversation with Amber.

Conversation 33: The Story, Journey and Passion of Lisa Nolting, RD, LD

“Food Service is definitely an area that could benefit from more dietitians, not just for their nutrition expertise, but for our management and our leadership skills. I think that’s what school food service really needs in addition to being able to follow the (school meal program) guidelines.” - Lisa Nolting, RD, LD

My conversation today is with Registered Dietitian Lisa Nolting.

My conversation today is with a new friend of mine and I absolutely enjoy talking with her every time I see her. We met through the Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and I found Lisa’s passion for food service and management to be inspiring, since it is something I have always been a little scared of. In our conversation, Lisa takes me through some her of her bravest moments as a new dietitian and what brings her joy in being a dietitian in a K-12 school system and in her current job with Iowa State University. At Iowa State she has a wide variety of responsibilities, including helping students with food allergies navigate the college dining halls and meeting their nutritional needs. And this is just the beginning...

Please enjoy my conversation with Lisa.

Daelmans Stroopwafels are baked with care, using only natural ingredients, and containing no artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or trans-fat. Delicious straight from the package, Daelmans Stroopwafels evolve into a scrumptious, sweet and melty treat when placed atop your hot cup for about two minutes, allowing the heat to warm the biscuit, soften the caramel, and release the natural aroma of cinnamon and real Bourbon vanilla. They are available in three varieties – caramel, honey, and now chocolate-caramel. www.daelmansbanket.nl/en/

Conversation 32: The Story, Journey and Passion of Tanya Hargrave-Klein, MS, RD, LD

“I fell into dietetics by chance. I had already been working in the fitness world. During undergrad, I taught group fitness classes and I worked in a worksite health promotion program. That really interested me because I liked the marriage of fitness and the nutrition. I loved the wellbeing and wellness work. I was very comfortable in exercise physiology and it allowed me to really dig deep in the kinesiology arena and get that expertise as well (masters degree). I had expertise in both the nutrition and fitness world. I wanted to be on the front end, the prevention side, that is where I felt my talent was.” - Tanya Hargrave-Klein, MS, RD, LD.

My conversation today is with Registered Dietitian Tanya Hargrave-Klein

When I moved to the Des Moines area, about 9 years ago, I started working with a project involving wellness interventions at elementary schools in the area as a contractor with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation. The project had a group Registered Dietitians providing the education to the students and this is where I met the wonderful and Tanya. Tanya and I worked together on this project for a couple of years and we connected during that time. We have somewhat stayed in contact over the years until recently, we started working together again with the Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Tanya has always inspired me because when I met her, she was an entrepreneur and had her own business, TAVi Health Incorporated. I love the tagline of her business: “TAVi Health is your partner in wellness and health promotion. Combining the resources of an exercise physiologist and registered dietitian, a therapeutic recreation specialist, and a quirky creative director, we develop unique and innovative wellness incentive campaigns.” If you are thinking of starting your own business, this is a must listen!

Please enjoy my conversation with Tanya.
