Fondest SHU Memory
There are way too many to choose just one! My four years at Seton Hill were four of the very best years of my life. I met some of the most genuine and wonderful people at Seton Hill including my fiance, Greg. Some of my top memories include my Cross Country Team, Christmas on the Hill, Coffee Talks, No-Bake Cookies and Omelets at Lowe Dining Hall, Food Service Management Dinners, The Business Plan Competition and Iron-Chef: Seton Hill, going to FNCE with the Dietetics Club, DeChantal Hall where I spent three wonderful years and my Supervised Practice at Monongahela Valley Hospital.
First Job after Graduation
My first job was as a clinical dietitian at Schuylkill Medical Center in Pottsville, Pa. working with Sodexo. I am currently working at St. Elias, a long-term care hospital in Anchorage, Alaska as a clinical dietitian.
My proudest moment was graduation. The Coordinated Dietetics Program was challenging and graduating was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Coming in at a close second and third were landing a job and officially becoming a registered dietitian.
