Albertsons Wellness Services Corporate Dietitian 

As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, what do you do?  

I am a Wellness Services Corporate Dietitian for Albertsons Companies. I came here two years ago after being the Wellness and Performance Nutritionist for Stanford University for 5 years. Before that I was a nutrition expert/writer for WebMD.com for 10 years, wrote 25 books and contributed content to magazines, newspapers and websites.

I develop and manage multiple programs that our in-store dietitians and the dietitians in our RD Network bring to communities in their areas. These programs range from diabetes and prediabetes store tours and healthy aging cooking & tasting classes to educational food experiences demonstrated by our in-store and division dietitians. I also develop a handful of recipes each month and write a corresponding blog that is shared throughout the company on websites, social media and our ecommerce platform.

 

What are the benefits you have seen from your services in the Idaho community?

The greater Boise area is the pilot location for our in-store dietitian program. This program will hopefully grow to include many more in-store dietitians soon. These innovative educational programs are developed, tested and implemented in the greater Boise area, often before being launched in other areas around the country. 

 

How can someone reach you to access your services?
