Retail Dietitian Profiles
My role is to be the nutrition expert in our grocery store and make customers' lives easier, healthier and happier. I love having the whole grocery store as my classroom to teach customers hands-on about healthy eating. I also help in other departments when they need, which I enjoy as it mixes up my day-to-day tasks. For example, I help deliver flowers on Valentine’s Day and help in the kitchen with Veterans Day breakfast. I get to be a part of the store in every way possible, which is so fun!
