Conversation 39: The Story, Journey and Passion of Alison St. Germain MS, RD, LD

“It is hard to get the buy in with intuitive eating...If you allow this process to happen, you have such a peace and you love to eat. You are also are able to maintain a healthy, I really don’t want to use the word weight because that is used so loosely, but your body is healthy because your body eventually eats what it is suppose to. As a society we micromanage everything so much, including our food and our exercise, everything is so external. This is more taking a step back and looking internal of I’m going to eat because I am hungry, not because it is noon.” - Alison St. Germain MS, RD, LD

My conversation today is with Registered Dietitian, Alison St. Germain

Alison has had a very interesting start when she was deciding what to study in college. She starting out wanting to be a lawyer and then dietetics found her. She has worked in a variety of settings from long term care and private practice to her current role with the Dietetic Internship with Iowa State University. Along the way, she has found her passion for body kindness, intuitive eating and volunteering with different student organizations while she is also raising 2 daughters. Alison has a strong fire burning inside her for our profession and I hope it fires up something inside of you.

Please enjoy my conversation with Alison.

Conversation 38: The Story, Journey and Passion of Nicole White, MBA, RD, CSSD, LDN

“If it’s not a good fit; if it’s the work environment, if it’s your boss, it it’s you, if it’s the people you work with, whatever it is, then you shouldn’t have to be unhappy. Work should be, what I believe, and I know not everyone get’s this luxury, something fun. That’s why I like it so much here (University of Iowa). I just get to come and do different things everyday and interact with so many different people. ” - Nicole White, MBA, RD, CSSD, LDN

My conversation today is with Registered Dietitian, Nicole White

In the past year, the University of Iowa’s Department of Intercollegiate Athletics hired a Registered Dietitian to be their Director of Sports Nutrition. Sports Nutrition is quickly becoming a popular job opportunity for Registered Dietitians and working with all types of college athletes. So, I was very excited when I reached out to Nicole and she agreed to be a part of this podcast. Nicole shared some great information about the blood, sweat and tears she put into finding the perfect sports nutrition job for her and some advice for others looking to get into the profession. You can hear Nicole’s passion throughout our conversation for her job and inspiring others.

Please enjoy my conversation with Nicole.

Conversation 37: The Story, Journey and Passion of RD-to-be, Sarah Manders

“I always liked going to the grocery store with my mom and that fueled my food interest. My mom read the nutrition labels and I learn from watching her do that when we were shopping. We always had dinner together as a family. Being an intern now is all very fascinating, now I am applying everything I learned in school. ” - Sarah Manders, RD-to-be

My conversation today is with RD-to-be and Dietetic Intern, Sarah Manders

I absolutely love talking with dietetic students and interns because I see myself in these passionate and excited people. Sarah is an RD-to-be with a lot of passion but is also completely open to the dietetics world and what it has to offer. She is early into her internship but is keeping an open mind to all the possibilities this profession has to offer. Our conversation got me excited again and reminds me why I am a dietitian today.

Please enjoy my conversation with Sarah.

Conversation 36: The Story, Journey and Passion of Rachel Wall, RD, LD

“By working in Extension, I get to have feelers within a lot of areas of nutrition. One of the other things I love about my job is the team I get to work with. I feel we are very supportive of each other. There are 12 Nutrition and Wellness Specialist across the state that do the nutrition and wellness programming. I think the great part is, even though I might not see them everyday, we can divide and conquer. Extension gives you the opportunity to explore your personal interests. ” - Rachel Wall RD, LD

My conversation today is with Registered Dietitian Rachel Wall.

Rachel and I had a great conversation today. Rachel radiates passion for being a Registered Dietitian and is flourishing as a Nutrition and Wellness Specialist for the Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. I didn’t not get a lot of experience with Extension when I was in my internship and I think it is very important for many of us to look more into this career opportunity. Rachel and I share many similar interests when it comes to food, cooking and our favorite fruit, cherries. She enjoys and excels as an expert in media by doing a monthly live TV segment and you must follow her Instagram feed for beautiful food photos of recipes she is recreating at home. Another fun and amazing tidbit about Rachel is she has been training and doing triathlons this summer.

Please enjoy my conversation with Rachel.
