I am a Registered Dietitian and Certified Food Scientist. I teach primarily in the areas of food science and nutrition. Prior to entering academia, I worked in the food industry for a private label food manufacturer as part of a research and development team, with specific focus on the regulatory processes that comprise product development and food labeling.
My most recent research pertains to the regulatory processes that surround the labeling of craft beer. I am involved with many professional organizations, including the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics (AND), and the Brewers Association (BA). In 2021, she was identified as one of IFT’s 2021 “Emerging Leaders” in the field of food science.
