"Hello everyone, my name is Mary! I am originally from Des Moines, Iowa and studied Dietetics/Nutrition at Iowa State University. During this time, I had the opportunity to work as a Teaching Assistant at the collegiate level for two different Nutrition courses - "Introduction to Nutrition" and "World Food Issues." Many of my students were Freshmen or taking their very first nutrition class - I loved seeing the growth students had from the beginning to end of the semester.

During undergrad I also had multiple experiences teaching and tutoring kids at the elementary level. This included my work as a Leader of a Garden Committee at a local elementary school (Kate Mitchell in Ames, IA). We taught the students about healthy eating in the classroom and tied this to sustainability by letting them grow fruits/vegetables in their very own garden. Seeing how excited 7 and 8-year-olds were about carrots and lettuce was truly one of the most rewarding experiences! Lastly, I volunteered over the summer as a reading tutor in Ames, IA for "Raising Readers in Story County." This included training prior and I tutored 3 different students ages 5, 8, and 12. The growth that occurred in all of the students, especially the 5-year-old, was truly remarkable.

After graduating from Iowa State University, I completed my Dietetic Internship at UC San Diego Medical Center and passed my board exam to become a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN). All my previous experiences have sparked my passion for teaching and I would love to work with kids or teach Nutrition at any level!

I have a flexible schedule so feel free to contact me to set up a time that may work best for you!" less...
