Conversation 162:  The Story, Journey and Passion of Rita Saeed, MS, RDN

“I have been off the (social media) grid awhile now, because it became so exhausting, especially when it wasn’t fun anymore. I’m the type of person who really follows her heart and I really follow my passion and my intuition. If something doesn’t feel fun for me anymore and it feels more like a chore and I’m not getting joy out of it, I simply need to take a step back and re-evaluate what the purpose is.” Rita Saeed, MS, RDN

Today’s conversation is with Rita Saeed,  a registered dietitian who works in the clinical area of dietetics but knows there is something more out there for her professionally. 

Rita and I connected by social media because she was having a hard time with where she fit in as a registered dietitian. As she finished her internship and entered the career force, Rita felt she was losing her passion for the profession and questioning why she became a dietitian in the first place. Rita shares a personal side and talks about the parts of dietitian life we all experience. She also shares some great insight to working through all the changes of becoming a new dietitian.

Conversation 161:  The Story, Journey and Passion of Laura Koch, MS, RD, LMNT

“One of the hardest things I was told when I started my job was our patients are not going to get better. They are either going to die or their are going to get a transplant. That was one thing that was a bit hard to come to grips with. I think for me, being able to help people maintain a good quality of life for the time they do have and managing this really difficult disease is really rewarding.” Laura Koch, MS, RD, LMNT

Today’s conversation is with Laura Koch,  a registered dietitian who found dietetics as a second career and has discovered a passion for renal nutrition. 

 

Laura and I connected this spring at the Nebraska Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics annual meeting and I am very glad she introduced herself. Her story starts out with going to college without a clear outline of what her passion was and working in an entirely different field of insurance. Along the way, she realized she had an interest in nutrition, pursued her degree and is now working for a dialysis clinic. Laura sheds some light on this area of nutrition and how she is finding it to be an area of dietetics to be rewarding. 

Please enjoy my conversation with Laura.

Conversation 160:  The Story, Journey and Passion of Alice Figueroa, MPH, RD, LD

“To be a really empowered dietitian and someone who works in the health industry, we all need to become aware of the issues going on in our community so we can become advocates. We do have a science background and we are the authority when it comes to food safety and nutrition. I think it’s really important for RD’s to become well-rounded and learn about the needs of our communities. ” Alice Figueroa, MPH, RD, LD

Today’s conversation is with Alice Figueroa, a registered dietitian who created her own path into dietetics by combining her passion for public health, policy and nutrition. 

 

Alice and I were connected through my previous podcast guest, Nicole Rodriguez because they did their internship together and I am so glad she did. Alice is one of those dietitians we all should get to know because of her deeply rooted passion for health advocacy both here in the United States and globally. She is from Guatemala and trips with her family early in her life, opened her eyes to many faults in basic human rights like food and clean water. Alice shares many of her experiences so far, insights on how policy affects all dietitians and the current project she is working on going back to her family's roots. This is a conversation you must make time for. 

Please enjoy my conversation with Alice.
