#167 - Allison Riederer, MS, RD
Conversation 167:  The Story, Journey and Passion of Allison Riederer, MS, RD “The way our dietetics education system is set up, we get a lot of support as we are becoming dietitians and then it dissipates. You don’t become a dietitian by accident.  We fight so hard to become dietitians and I think sometimes people expect their career to be the victory lap and it’s just not the way it works.” Allison Riederer, MS, RD Today’s conversation is with Allison Riederer, a registered dietitian and founder of Root & Rise Academy who focuses on career resources and coaching for current and future registered dietitians.    Allison and I connected by being on the same cheerleading team for all registered dietitians. She has created a space to help registered dietitians navigate their careers in a positive and productive way. She almost quit the profession because she wasn’t happy with the job she was in. This lead to her working with a mentor and finding the path of teaching. She is a Dietetic Program Coordinator by day and helps other dietitians in these same circumstances by night.  Please enjoy my conversation with Allison. Connect with Allison by email and on her Root and Rise Academy website. www.anneelizabethrd.com Copyright © 2019 OPI & AEHC Song: One Of These Days Artist: The Gemini www.thegeminimusic.com Music used by permission.

COVID Cocktails/Mocktails and Conversation with Carrie Moody, Nicole Rodriguez and Dave Sherotski I feel every great conversation is had over a meal or a cocktail (or mocktail if you choose).

In this episode of Cocktails, Mocktails and Conversations, I invited back my favorite threesome of Carrie Moody, Nicole Rodriguez and Dave Sherotski. It is a crazy time in the world right now with the COVID pandemic, so we just needed a cocktail to converse about what is going on, how to stay positive and what we are learning through this experience.  Cheers!   www.anneelizabethrd.com Copyright © 2019 OPI & AEHC Song: One Of These Days Artist: The Gemini www.thegeminimusic.com Music used by permission.

#162 - Rita Saeed, MS, RDN
Conversation 162:  The Story, Journey and Passion of Rita Saeed, MS, RDN “I have been off the (social media) grid awhile now, because it became so exhausting, especially when it wasn’t fun anymore. I’m the type of person who really follows her heart and I really follow my passion and my intuition. If something doesn’t feel fun for me anymore and it feels more like a chore and I’m not getting joy out of it, I simply need to take a step back and re-evaluate what the purpose is.” Rita Saeed, MS, RDN Today’s conversation is with Rita Saeed,  a registered dietitian who works in the clinical area of dietetics but knows there is something more out there for her professionally.  Rita and I connected by social media because she was having a hard time with where she fit in as a registered dietitian. As she finished her internship and entered the career force, Rita felt she was losing her passion for the profession and questioning why she became a dietitian in the first place. Rita shares a personal side and talks about the parts of dietitian life we all experience. She also shares some great insight to working through all the changes of becoming a new dietitian.  Please enjoy my conversation with Rita.Connect with Rita by email and on Instagram. www.anneelizabethrd.com Copyright © 2019 OPI & AEHC Song: One Of These Days Artist: The Gemini www.thegeminimusic.com Music used by permission.

Conversation 161:  The Story, Journey and Passion of Laura Koch, MS, RD, LMNT “One of the hardest things I was told when I started my job was our patients are not going to get better. They are either going to die or their are going to get a transplant. That was one thing that was a bit hard to come to grips with. I think for me, being able to help people maintain a good quality of life for the time they do have and managing this really difficult disease is really rewarding.” Laura Koch, MS, RD, LMNT Today’s conversation is with Laura Koch,  a registered dietitian who found dietetics as a second career and has discovered a passion for renal nutrition.    Laura and I connected this spring at the Nebraska Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics annual meeting and I am very glad she introduced herself. Her story starts out with going to college without a clear outline of what her passion was and working in an entirely different field of insurance. Along the way, she realized she had an interest in nutrition, pursued her degree and is now working for a dialysis clinic. Laura sheds some light on this area of nutrition and how she is finding it to be an area of dietetics to be rewarding.  Please enjoy my conversation with Laura.

Conversation 158:  The Story, Journey and Passion of Moe Schlachter MS, RD, LD, CDE “The beauty of our profession is sometimes we’re talking about really serious illnesses and diseases and the mood in the room can be a little grim - but sometimes we get to connect with our clients and back to memories of their mom, their grandma and their family meals and dinners to visit a time in the past,  which is really special. It sets our profession apart.” Moe Schlachter MS, RD, LD, CDE Today’s conversation is with Moe Schlachter, a registered dietitian who started off in the business world, went to culinary school and became a chef and is now running his own nutrition private practice.  I am not on Linkedin very much but there was one day when I was and came across Moe.

Moe is an amazing human doing amazing things currently and throughout his lifetime so far. His story is very unique as he started in the business world, went to Israel for culinary school, being a Chef in New York City,  and then a few years later going back to school for dietetics after a conversation and encouragement from a friend.

Conversation 155:  Transitioning from Vegetarian, A Registered Dietitian Perspective with Carrie Moody, RDN With a new documentary out and the many discussions I have had with clients and other registered dietitians about following a plant based diet, I wanted to talk a little bit more about someone who has navigated this type of lifestyle.

In today’s conversation, I talk with Carrie Moody, a registered dietitian who was a vegetarian for a long time and we discuss why she became a vegetarian, how she navigated this eating lifestyle and why she circled back to eating animal based foods.

Conversation 140 :  The Story, Journey and Passion of Brittani DaSilva, MS, RD “During my military service, I was taken back by the number of people in the military who were actually overweight. When you think about soldiers, you think about these men and women who are strong and physically fit but what I learned is that there were a lot of people who weren’t at their best health. I started to recognize these people weren’t like that because they chose it, they were like this because they were injured while serving, they had been deployed and were going through stress being separated from their families, or were experiencing PTSD after war and battling these scars inside of them while turning to food for comfort because of the sacrifices they made.” Brittani DaSilva, MS, RD Today’s conversation is with Brittani DaSilva, a registered dietitian, nutrition coach and US Army Veteran  who wants to end the war with diets and food guilt.  Brittani and I connected after she messaged me on about being from Iowa.

Conversation 133:  Cocktails/Mocktails and Conversation with Carrie Moody, Nicole Rodriguez and Dave Sherotski I feel every great conversation is had over a meal or a cocktail (or mocktail if you choose). These conversations take on their own life and travel into unique directions, which is what truly matters. Periodically, I will be putting on my party pants, pouring myself something refreshing to drink and inviting a guest to just see where the words take us. In this episode of Cocktails, Mocktails and Conversations, I invited back my favorite threesome of Carrie Moody, Nicole Rodriguez and Dave Sherotski. It’s America’s birthday and we are sharing how we celebrate and discussing our thoughts on plant-based eating.
