Hi, I’m Molly the dietitian. Thank you for visiting my website!
I am a registered dietitian working as a clinical dietitian, primarily outpatient, at a Top 100 Hospital. I have many professional goals that I would like to achieve over the course of my career. My current short-term goal is to become a certified diabetes educator. Becoming a CDE (certified diabetes educator) is required for my job and I am excited for the new challenge and experience it will bring.
I started my road to becoming a dietitian by attending Northern Illinois University (DeKalb, IL) from 2005-2009. I sadly graduated with no dietetic internship. Within a month of graduating, I was offered a last-minute internship and eagerly accepted! I enrolled in Marywood University’s (Scranton, PA) Distance Dietetic Internship. Rockford Memorial Hospital and Crusader Community Health (Rockford, IL) generously accepted to provide me their sites for my internship. The distance internship was intense but I completed the program in summer of 2010. On August 23, 2010, I drove up to Madison, WI and passed my RD exam! Within the same week, I landed a job in a tiny town in Illinois. It wasn’t my calling. I was there less than 2 months before starting my current job that does suit me.
With this website you’ll get an insight to the work a dietitian does, follow me as I expand my career, the stereotyping/stigmas that I experience due to “RD” being tacked onto my name, learning about the dietitics field, and of coursebeing able to see what the RD eats!
