Jen has only been a dietitian for three and a half years and yet in that span of time has established herself as a dietitian of note in the Rochester area. In her current position as Director of Nutrition at the Sweet Pea Plant-Based Kitchen she has shown an aptitude for dietetics, advocacy, and leadership.
She has served on the board of the Genesee Dietetic Association for two years. In addition to serving as the Nominating Co-Chair, she offered her time in other ways seeking to increase social media presence for the organization, assisting in program planning, and encouraging involvement from non-board members of the Genesee Dietetic Association.
On the national level, Jen has been active with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation where she holds the position of both Secretary and Director. It is evident that she is dedicated to policy and providing access to the dietetic world to those in need, especially highlighted as she raised over $6000 for the Foundation through a variety of different campaigns!
It is an honor to have Jen as a member of GDA and we greatly appreciate her commitment to the dietetics profession at the national, state and district levels. Congratulations on this remarkable achievement!
