A New Face at Liberty Dining Services

Hello! My name is Rachel and I am the new campus dietitian with Liberty University Dining Services. I am here as a resource for you! We can meet if you have questions related to your general nutrition, a health concern like a food allergies/ sensitivity, disease, or weight management. I will also work to develop healthy menus that will provide with nutritional information to make healthy choices.  I received a BS in Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise from Virginia Tech in 2008. She also completed a Masters of Public Health from the Virginia Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011.

Since graduation, I have worked in wide variety of settings that adds to her skill and knowledge in dietetics. I started with Virginia Cooperative Extension’s Family Nutrition Program. This is a valuable program that works with low-income, high-risk populations. I was responsible for educating paraprofessionals who delivered nutrition education in various community settings and designing a curriculum platform that complied with federal guidelines.
From there, I accepted a position in Lynchburg’s Centra Hospital working as a clinical dietitian. My goal was to improve the overall health and well-being of patients through medical nutrition therapy, whether it be by providing diet education, calculating and monitoring tube feedings, or identifying and treating malnutrition.
I look forward to meeting with you and making your experience with Liberty Dining Services a great one!
