Favorite advice to share with patients: The best piece of advice I share with others is "to be your own best advocate toward good health."

                    [post_content] => Working with DOD has allowed me freedom and flexibility in my schedule while also challenging me to learn how various nutrition entities work. I have been able to learn new computer systems, pull ideas to implement into my other jobs and become more diverse as a dietitian.

Why did you pursue a career in dietetics: I fell in love with learning about how food could nourish my body though every stage of life. As an athlete, the idea that "food is fuel" really sparked my interest. However, it was not until I went on an internship to India that nutrition became so much more than performance, weight loss, etc. I learned it was a predictor of health and well being. I developed a strong passion to learn how I could help people no matter what state of life they were in or whatever part of the world they resided.

                    [post_content] => My favorite part about consulting for Dietitians on Demand is being able to expand my experience.  I work in long-term care, but all of the facilities are so different.  I have had the enjoyment of working with Residents with conditions I may not have ever seen otherwise.  I have also met so many great people, I have been able to expand my network and learn so much all at the same time.

Why did you pursue dietetics as a career:  I have always been interested in eating healthy and working out.  I started out with personal trainers in middle-school and it developed from there.  This career has been the perfect fit for me.  It allows me to share my passion with others, whether it be my residents or even co-workers- what more can you ask for in a job!?

My overall experience for my first job with DOD was wonderful. The hiring process is quick, and recruiters are always reachable and supportive when you need help.

Why did you pursue dietetics as a career: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”-Hippocrates.I believe the power of food in health recovery and promotion. However, many of us struggle in having a healthy diet. A healthy diet should be nourishing and enjoyable at the same time. With this, I am passionate in educating nutrition to help clients to build a healthy relationship with food.

Favorite advice to share with patients: Some of the advice I give the most often is that we are all individuals and that what works for one person will not always be best or work for someone else, it is not one size fits all when it comes to nutrition.

Why did you pursue dietetics as a career: I always knew I wanted to have a career in the health field. I enjoyed learning and experimenting with how nutrition plays such a vital roll in a person's overall health and well-being. When I was in high school, I went to visit my sister in college. Her good friend was a nutrition major and after talking with her and hearing about the opportunities and the role of a registered dietitian, I knew that is what I wanted to do.

                    [post_content] => I love to travel, and working with Dietitians on Demand gives me the opportunity to see places I may never have gotten to see otherwise. That's one of the things that attracted me to this job, but I also love learning new things. This way I get to explore new places, meet different types of patients, and work with new people all the time. Being a travel RD teaches me new ways of doing things, keeps me on my toes, and allows me to grow as an RD.

Why did you pursue a career in dietetics: I've always been active in sports, and in high school I finally made the connection between eating and how I felt. I didn't know how to pursue a career in nutrition at first and always liked science, so I started college with a major in biology. I took a nutrition class as an elective and loved it. I changed my major to nutrition and dietetics and haven't looked back!

Working for different facilities keeps me on my toes because of how unique each facility is and I like that. I am constantly learning and meeting new people. The staff at DOD has been great and they help you through each step of the way.

Why did you pursue dietetics as a career: When I realized pharmacy school was not fulfilling to me and found out that you could earn a degree in Food and Nutrition, I knew this was my calling. I wanted to share the information that what we eat on a daily basis is the number one determinant of our health. I wanted to share that our health is not just the luck of the draw.

Favorite advice to share with patients: Nutrition is a balance. It is a balance between meeting your health, personal and cultural needs. There is not one "diet" that is right for everyone.

What do you love about being a traveling dietitian: With new surroundings and a new workplace, I don't have to worry about becoming bored or complacent. It's also a great opportunity to travel and visit new places that I might not have gone to otherwise. If you're looking for a permanent placement it's nice to work at a facility on a short-term contract first and see if it's a good fit.

What I love most about being a dietitian is assisting others in enhancing their health -- whether it is in a clinical setting, gym, or athletic field. I enjoy developing specialized plans and addressing the unique needs of each patient/client while applying evidenced based nutrition to provide quality information. I value working among other healthcare professionals to continue to learn and share my love for food!

                    [post_content] => I love the flexibility and work place variety offered by Dietitians on Demand. The owners and staff are also some of the most professional people I've had the pleasure of knowing. I started with DOD at a children's hospital in Virginia back in 2008 and have since worked per diem to full-time contracts in acute care, skilled nursing and psychiatric hospitals.

Favorite advice to share with patients: Stay positive and focus on a couple of changes at a time. Patients tend to feel overwhelmed from the get-go and as dietitians, we often come into the situation with an abundance of information. When dealing with a diet restriction or disease-specific diet, focus on what the patient can have versus what they can't have.

I have had the opportunity to learn something new at each assignment and I also love the amount of flexibility I have. Plus I was lucky enough to have an assignment on Maui, which will probably be my favorite job of all time!

Why did you pursue a career in dietetics: As as child I always had an interest in nutrition and cooking and could see the profound impact lifestyle and healthy eating have on our health -- my amazing Dad has been living with extremely well-controlled type 1 diabetes for more than 50 years! This has made me very committed to teaching others how to better care for themselves by eating well and staying active.

The places I have been so far have been a lot of fun. I was able to take some pretty amazing trips I wouldn't have done otherwise, such as taking a trip down the California coast. It was incredible!

Why did you pursue dietetics as a career: I was always active with sports when I was younger, but I was very picky with my food and I didn't nourish my body properly. I had the opportunity to meet with a dietitian and this was a turning point in improving my own health. I later took some courses in college and knew I had found a passion in helping others achieve their own health goals.

Why did you pursue dietetics as a career:  As I began college many years ago, my mom had inspired me to pursue a career in Nutrition, as most of my family members had chronic conditions in which they had to follow therapeutic diets to promote their health.  As a Dietitian, I have enjoyed worked in numerous settings: clinical, outpatient, community, food service, school nutrition, assisted senior living and behavioral healthcare.  I have been grateful for my mom’s suggestion, as I eventually had to counsel her on a Renal Diet after she became diagnosed with renal failure. She continues to do fairly well as she starts her 26th year on dialysis.

                    [post_content] => As a child, I always valued how my family would sit down for meals, practice gratitude beforehand, and the wonderful connection that we would share together when we would cook, eat, and spend time together. I didn't know it then, but as my relationship with food was being molded, I began to develop a love for food and it's healing properties not only with the body, but also with the mind and the soul. Since then, I've dedicated my career to helping others to gather experiences that develop a caring and loving relationship with themselves and others within the aspect of food with creative meal demos, gratitude driven eating gatherings, as well as nutrition counseling.

Favorite thing about working as a consultant with DOD: Dietitians on Demand helps me to stay clinically sharp. With the many opportunities to work clinically in the different fields, DOD offers a great opportunity to become a more well rounded practitioner.

Why did you pursue a career in dietetics: I was a cook on a nuclear submarine in the Navy. I became interested in dietetics when the commanding officer was looking for volunteers for a crew member to become a nutrition "guru" since he noticed many of the crew members gaining weight and did not think it was healthy for them. I volunteered and started reading nutrition books to educate myself, and began teaching classes to the crew to help them make better food choices. I received a Navy Achievement Medal for my services. When I was ready to be discharged from the Navy I had the nutrition bug, and it just made sense to attend college and pursue a career in Dietetics and Nutrition.

As I retired from FT employment, Dietitians on Demand has allowed me to continue to work but with the flexibility and freedom I’ve wanted. As a consultant, I’ve really appreciated the payroll process and not having to send the bills, to the administrator!

Why did you pursue a career in dietetics: When growing up, food was always a sign of hospitality when visitors came to our house. But, I also  grew up in a household were finances were a focus.  So it became apparent for the need to stretch the budget to have nutritious foods on the table.  Therefore, I thought it would be good to be able to combine these principles to teach others how to eat healthier and make the dollar go farther.

                    [post_content] => I believe that working for Dietitians on Demand makes me stronger clinical dietitian. Since every facility is unique in how it approaches clinical nutrition, it keeps my clinical skills sharp and fresh. For me variety truly is the spice of life! Working in new settings, with different patient populations and meeting new dietitians and healthcare professionals is something I greatly enjoy.

Favorite advice to share with patients: Small goals and small changes truly do make a difference.  Whether it be swapping a soda for some water, taking a 15 minute walk at lunchtime or skipping the pepperoni on your pizza and trying spinach instead.  Small changes are easier to maintain and give you the best chance for long term success in your health and wellness goals.

Favorite advice to share with patients: If you're craving a piece of cake, eat a piece of cake because if you deny yourself that piece you'll end up eating the whole cake and not just a piece!

                    [post_content] => Dietitians on Demand has given me a great opportunity to help other dietitians and/or facilities because I have a flexible schedule in my current job and my children are college graduates. Not to mention that I've made great friendships with a couple of dietitians and have had the opportunity to mentor younger generations of RDNs.

Why did you pursue a career in dietetics: Nutrition is vital for good health and well being and it's important through the lifecycle. I enjoy being a dietitian, and I also paired my bachelors in dietetics and nutrition with a master's in journalism, which has served me really well.

                    [post_content] => I love to help clients learn how to advocate for their own health. They likely already know of one or two small food changes they can start making today that can make a big difference. Many times just knowing someone else believes in them is the confidence boost they need to actually do it!

Favorite thing about working for Dietitians on Demand: I love the different atmospheres I'm able to work in and all of the people I'm able to meet! Getting to see how other facilities work and how the RD fits in has helped make me more flexible and well-rounded. Being a traveling RD is a truly unique and amazing opportunity. Not only do I get to meet interesting people everywhere I go, but I've had the opportunity to hike mountains, swim in the ocean, trek down canyons, and eat some of the tastiest food ever (any fellow foodie RD's will understand, haha)!

                    [post_content] => I have worked in a variety of areas of dietetics and am so grateful for this opportunity to travel and use my skills and education with Dietitians on Demand. I have learned much and still work on my fitness and nutrition. I absolutely love working with Dietitians on Demand! The recruiters are amazing, the staff is amazing, and the pay is much higher than one would normally make in a local permanent position practicing medical nutrition therapy in a hospital or nursing home.

Why did you choose a career in dietetics: I grew up Italian American, and we love to eat great foods. Many of my mother’s and grandmother’s recipes of course were from scratch, so food was emphasized everywhere! As I grew into a teenager, I would go on diets to try to lose weight, to no avail! I knew also, that I wanted to attend college and work in health-related professions. Because I could not stand the sight of blood, nursing was out at the time. Since Youngstown State University had the program in nutrition, I thought that I would try this. I am so grateful for the time at YSU.

What do you love about traveling as a dietitian: I love meeting new people and learning from the younger dietitians!!

Why did you choose dietetics as a career: I grew up watching my mom try different diets and buy different exercise equipment. I really enjoyed trying to help her find ways to become healthier. After I graduated from college with a BA in History, I realized that nutrition was really my passion. I went back to school to become a dietitian and it was the best decision I ever made.

                    [post_content] => For me, Dietitians on Demand provides an opportunity to save ahead for an early retirement. (Who knows, maybe hitting to road as a traveling RD in my RV?) On a serious note, as a manager, it lets me see what others are doing in the field and meet other dietitians in the community. It forces me to stay current and up-to-date on the literature.

Favorite advice to share with patients/clients: Don't eat anything bigger than your first. This quote was from my fabulous CDE preceptor during my internship. Believe it or not, any compliments or success stories I hear from patients and client all revolve around this simple statement.

What is your favorite thing about working with Dietitians on Demand: As I moved into a consultant role, I love working with Dietitians on Demand because of the varied opportunities and settings. It has expanded my dietetic experience and allows for constant change and meeting new people.

This way, I am able to get a better understanding of the different neighborhoods and suburbs in the area. I also appreciate the flexibility a job like this offers.

Why did you choose a career in dietetics: I wanted to combine my culinary background with nutrition so I could help people get excited about food and health again. I believe a large part of being healthy is enjoying what you eat, and it's easier to do that when you know how to make healthy food taste good. I think it's key to teach people these type of skills. Once I began my internship, I discovered I had a knack for nutrition support and critical care, an area I'm still very passionate about.

My husband and I like to travel and get bored being in one place too long. DOD posts new positions nearly everyday nationwide with varying time requirements. This gives us the freedom to explore the country and move around as frequently as we like.

What’s your favorite part about being a traveling RD: When you travel, things are always changing. Things around you are always new and exciting making life feel like a constant vacation! Each place you move to, you get to live like a local versus speed through like a tourist. You never get into a rut or too much of a routine. Every job teaches you something new making you a stronger employee and dietitian for the years to come. Plus, you make so many new friends and get to work with so many more wonderful people than you would staying in the same job for years at a time.

What’s the best advice you give to patients/clients: I am very down to earth with patients and tell them I am just as human as they are. Fighting for personal health is an ongoing battle for everyone and just because I am a Dietitian, doesn't make me exempt from fighting too.

Long Term Care

Working with DOD has allowed me freedom and flexibility in my schedule while also challenging me to learn how various nutrition entities work. I have been able to learn new computer systems, pull ideas to implement into my other jobs and become more diverse as a dietitian.

Why did you pursue a career in dietetics: I fell in love with learning about how food could nourish my body though every stage of life. As an athlete, the idea that “food is fuel” really sparked my interest. However, it was not until I went on an internship to India that nutrition became so much more than performance, weight loss, etc. I learned it was a predictor of health and well being. I developed a strong passion to learn how I could help people no matter what state of life they were in or whatever part of the world they resided.

Long Term Care

My favorite part about consulting for Dietitians on Demand is being able to expand my experience.  I work in long-term care, but all of the facilities are so different.  I have had the enjoyment of working with Residents with conditions I may not have ever seen otherwise.  I have also met so many great people, I have been able to expand my network and learn so much all at the same time.

Why did you pursue dietetics as a career:  I have always been interested in eating healthy and working out.  I started out with personal trainers in middle-school and it developed from there.  This career has been the perfect fit for me.  It allows me to share my passion with others, whether it be my residents or even co-workers- what more can you ask for in a job!?

With Dietitians on Demand, you get to pick the jobs you want to work and I like the way they take care of you. They really try to look out for you.

As a recent graduate, I appreciate DOD for the job opportunity to jump start my career as a registered dietitian, which lead to a permanent job for me. My overall experience for my first job with DOD was wonderful. The hiring process is quick, and recruiters are always reachable and supportive when you need help.

Why did you pursue dietetics as a career: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”-Hippocrates.I believe the power of food in health recovery and promotion. However, many of us struggle in having a healthy diet. A healthy diet should be nourishing and enjoyable at the same time. With this, I am passionate in educating nutrition to help clients to build a healthy relationship with food.

Acute Care and Long Term Care

My favorite things about working as a consultant is the flexibility and ever changing assignments. Also, having superb support from my recruiter, Candace, has made working for DOD one of the best experiences ever!

Favorite advice to share with patients: Some of the advice I give the most often is that we are all individuals and that what works for one person will not always be best or work for someone else, it is not one size fits all when it comes to nutrition.

I have enjoyed the opportunity with Dietitians on Demand to work in different settings with different people. It provides so much experience for growing my career and abilities.

Why did you pursue dietetics as a career: I always knew I wanted to have a career in the health field. I enjoyed learning and experimenting with how nutrition plays such a vital roll in a person’s overall health and well-being. When I was in high school, I went to visit my sister in college. Her good friend was a nutrition major and after talking with her and hearing about the opportunities and the role of a registered dietitian, I knew that is what I wanted to do.

Long Term Acute Care Facility

I love to travel, and working with Dietitians on Demand gives me the opportunity to see places I may never have gotten to see otherwise. That’s one of the things that attracted me to this job, but I also love learning new things. This way I get to explore new places, meet different types of patients, and work with new people all the time. Being a travel RD teaches me new ways of doing things, keeps me on my toes, and allows me to grow as an RD.

Why did you pursue a career in dietetics: I’ve always been active in sports, and in high school I finally made the connection between eating and how I felt. I didn’t know how to pursue a career in nutrition at first and always liked science, so I started college with a major in biology. I took a nutrition class as an elective and loved it. I changed my major to nutrition and dietetics and haven’t looked back!

Acute Care

Working for Dietitians on Demand gives me the opportunity to work for facilities that fit my needs. Working for different facilities keeps me on my toes because of how unique each facility is and I like that. I am constantly learning and meeting new people. The staff at DOD has been great and they help you through each step of the way.

Why did you pursue dietetics as a career: When I realized pharmacy school was not fulfilling to me and found out that you could earn a degree in Food and Nutrition, I knew this was my calling. I wanted to share the information that what we eat on a daily basis is the number one determinant of our health. I wanted to share that our health is not just the luck of the draw.

Dietitians on Demand is incredibly flexible. They do a great job of working with you to find a contract that fits your interests, location and availability. I’ve also enjoyed how easy it is to work for them, they are incredibly quick at responding and always helpful!

Favorite advice to share with patients: Nutrition is a balance. It is a balance between meeting your health, personal and cultural needs. There is not one “diet” that is right for everyone.

Dietitians on Demand is a great company. They take good care of their employees, everything from providing accommodations when you’re traveling to answering all of your questions. They’re thorough and knowledgeable, and I recommend working for this company.

What do you love about being a traveling dietitian: With new surroundings and a new workplace, I don’t have to worry about becoming bored or complacent. It’s also a great opportunity to travel and visit new places that I might not have gone to otherwise. If you’re looking for a permanent placement it’s nice to work at a facility on a short-term contract first and see if it’s a good fit.

The process from applying for the consulting position to my first day on the job has gone smoothly thanks to Dietitians on Demand.

Favorite advice to share with patients: “The first wealth is health.”- Ralph Waldo Emerson. A well balanced diet and good nutrition is essential to living a healthy life.

La Verne, California

Acute Care

I love the flexibility and opportunities Dietitians on Demand offers! I enjoy traveling to different facilities throughout Southern California and cherish the friends and information I have learned along the way. I have become a stronger clinical dietitian because of the people I have been able to learn from throughout my time at each assignment.

Why did you pursue dietetics as a career: My passion for nutrition started with my love for fitness, yoga, and living a healthy lifestyle. What I love most about being a dietitian is assisting others in enhancing their health — whether it is in a clinical setting, gym, or athletic field. I enjoy developing specialized plans and addressing the unique needs of each patient/client while applying evidenced based nutrition to provide quality information. I value working among other healthcare professionals to continue to learn and share my love for food!

Behavioral Health

I love the flexibility and work place variety offered by Dietitians on Demand. The owners and staff are also some of the most professional people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. I started with DOD at a children’s hospital in Virginia back in 2008 and have since worked per diem to full-time contracts in acute care, skilled nursing and psychiatric hospitals.

Favorite advice to share with patients: Stay positive and focus on a couple of changes at a time. Patients tend to feel overwhelmed from the get-go and as dietitians, we often come into the situation with an abundance of information. When dealing with a diet restriction or disease-specific diet, focus on what the patient can have versus what they can’t have.

Long Term Care

I love the variety of work I have been able to experience with Dietitians on Demand — hospitals, nursing/rehab facilities, a supplement company, adult day care centers and working with a pediatric GI doctor. I have had the opportunity to learn something new at each assignment and I also love the amount of flexibility I have. Plus I was lucky enough to have an assignment on Maui, which will probably be my favorite job of all time!

Why did you pursue a career in dietetics: As as child I always had an interest in nutrition and cooking and could see the profound impact lifestyle and healthy eating have on our health — my amazing Dad has been living with extremely well-controlled type 1 diabetes for more than 50 years! This has made me very committed to teaching others how to better care for themselves by eating well and staying active.

Acute Care

As a traveling dietitian I am able to combine my two favorite passions: nutrition and travel, it is a dream come true. The places I have been so far have been a lot of fun. I was able to take some pretty amazing trips I wouldn’t have done otherwise, such as taking a trip down the California coast. It was incredible!

Why did you pursue dietetics as a career: I was always active with sports when I was younger, but I was very picky with my food and I didn’t nourish my body properly. I had the opportunity to meet with a dietitian and this was a turning point in improving my own health. I later took some courses in college and knew I had found a passion in helping others achieve their own health goals.

Emma S., RD

Chantilly, Virginia

Behavioral Health Care

Being a consultant for Dietitian on Demand has given me the flexibility and finances to have various jobs, be a primary care giver for my young child, as well as consistently travel cross-country to visit my mom.

Why did you pursue dietetics as a career:  As I began college many years ago, my mom had inspired me to pursue a career in Nutrition, as most of my family members had chronic conditions in which they had to follow therapeutic diets to promote their health.  As a Dietitian, I have enjoyed worked in numerous settings: clinical, outpatient, community, food service, school nutrition, assisted senior living and behavioral healthcare.  I have been grateful for my mom’s suggestion, as I eventually had to counsel her on a Renal Diet after she became diagnosed with renal failure. She continues to do fairly well as she starts her 26th year on dialysis.

Desiderio A., RD

Tucson, Arizona

Long Term Care

As a child, I always valued how my family would sit down for meals, practice gratitude beforehand, and the wonderful connection that we would share together when we would cook, eat, and spend time together. I didn’t know it then, but as my relationship with food was being molded, I began to develop a love for food and it’s healing properties not only with the body, but also with the mind and the soul. Since then, I’ve dedicated my career to helping others to gather experiences that develop a caring and loving relationship with themselves and others within the aspect of food with creative meal demos, gratitude driven eating gatherings, as well as nutrition counseling.

Favorite thing about working as a consultant with DOD: Dietitians on Demand helps me to stay clinically sharp. With the many opportunities to work clinically in the different fields, DOD offers a great opportunity to become a more well rounded practitioner.

Acute Care

Dietitians on Demand has given me the opportunity to work in different settings and keep my skills sharp. Not to mention many of the assignments offer flexibility which I can usually work around my normal work schedule.

Why did you pursue a career in dietetics: I was a cook on a nuclear submarine in the Navy. I became interested in dietetics when the commanding officer was looking for volunteers for a crew member to become a nutrition “guru” since he noticed many of the crew members gaining weight and did not think it was healthy for them. I volunteered and started reading nutrition books to educate myself, and began teaching classes to the crew to help them make better food choices. I received a Navy Achievement Medal for my services. When I was ready to be discharged from the Navy I had the nutrition bug, and it just made sense to attend college and pursue a career in Dietetics and Nutrition.

Long Term Care

Dietitians on Demand have helped me ease into retirement. As I retired from FT employment, Dietitians on Demand has allowed me to continue to work but with the flexibility and freedom I’ve wanted. As a consultant, I’ve really appreciated the payroll process and not having to send the bills, to the administrator!

Why did you pursue a career in dietetics: When growing up, food was always a sign of hospitality when visitors came to our house. But, I also  grew up in a household were finances were a focus.  So it became apparent for the need to stretch the budget to have nutritious foods on the table.  Therefore, I thought it would be good to be able to combine these principles to teach others how to eat healthier and make the dollar go farther.

Dietitians on Demand has changed my life for the better! Being an Interim Director was challenging and rewarding. And Louise, my recruiter, is the best! I also love the adventure of showing up that first day of my new assignment. You have to step right in and blend with the existing staff. I’ve met so many new people and the newfound independence is gratifying. DOD also helps fill gaps in my private practice, too!

What’s your favorite part about being a traveling RD: I love leaving my home… and then returning again. Everything feels so FRESH 🙂

Kristin A., RD

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Acute Care

I believe that working for Dietitians on Demand makes me stronger clinical dietitian. Since every facility is unique in how it approaches clinical nutrition, it keeps my clinical skills sharp and fresh. For me variety truly is the spice of life! Working in new settings, with different patient populations and meeting new dietitians and healthcare professionals is something I greatly enjoy.

Favorite advice to share with patients: Small goals and small changes truly do make a difference.  Whether it be swapping a soda for some water, taking a 15 minute walk at lunchtime or skipping the pepperoni on your pizza and trying spinach instead.  Small changes are easier to maintain and give you the best chance for long term success in your health and wellness goals.

Traveling Dietitian

I love the flexibility with Dietitians on Demand! My husband serves in the US Navy and I wanted the flexibility to work as much or as little as I want so that I can spend time with him in between deployments or with special events in the Navy, etc.

Favorite advice to share with patients: If you’re craving a piece of cake, eat a piece of cake because if you deny yourself that piece you’ll end up eating the whole cake and not just a piece!

Claudia G., RD

Miami, FL

Acute Care

Dietitians on Demand has given me a great opportunity to help other dietitians and/or facilities because I have a flexible schedule in my current job and my children are college graduates. Not to mention that I’ve made great friendships with a couple of dietitians and have had the opportunity to mentor younger generations of RDNs.

Why did you pursue a career in dietetics: Nutrition is vital for good health and well being and it’s important through the lifecycle. I enjoy being a dietitian, and I also paired my bachelors in dietetics and nutrition with a master’s in journalism, which has served me really well.

Amy G., RD

Bryan, OH

Traveling Dietitian

I love to help clients learn how to advocate for their own health. They likely already know of one or two small food changes they can start making today that can make a big difference. Many times just knowing someone else believes in them is the confidence boost they need to actually do it!

Favorite thing about working for Dietitians on Demand: I love the different atmospheres I’m able to work in and all of the people I’m able to meet! Getting to see how other facilities work and how the RD fits in has helped make me more flexible and well-rounded. Being a traveling RD is a truly unique and amazing opportunity. Not only do I get to meet interesting people everywhere I go, but I’ve had the opportunity to hike mountains, swim in the ocean, trek down canyons, and eat some of the tastiest food ever (any fellow foodie RD’s will understand, haha)!

New Castle, Pennsylvania

Long Term Care, Acute Care, Traveling

I have worked in a variety of areas of dietetics and am so grateful for this opportunity to travel and use my skills and education with Dietitians on Demand. I have learned much and still work on my fitness and nutrition. I absolutely love working with Dietitians on Demand! The recruiters are amazing, the staff is amazing, and the pay is much higher than one would normally make in a local permanent position practicing medical nutrition therapy in a hospital or nursing home.

Why did you choose a career in dietetics: I grew up Italian American, and we love to eat great foods. Many of my mother’s and grandmother’s recipes of course were from scratch, so food was emphasized everywhere! As I grew into a teenager, I would go on diets to try to lose weight, to no avail! I knew also, that I wanted to attend college and work in health-related professions. Because I could not stand the sight of blood, nursing was out at the time. Since Youngstown State University had the program in nutrition, I thought that I would try this. I am so grateful for the time at YSU.

What do you love about traveling as a dietitian: I love meeting new people and learning from the younger dietitians!!

Iris P., RD

Acute Care

I like the fact that Dietitians on Demand has new job opportunities posted often, and how the recruiters answer your questions to see if it’s a good fit.

Why did you choose dietetics as a career: I grew up watching my mom try different diets and buy different exercise equipment. I really enjoyed trying to help her find ways to become healthier. After I graduated from college with a BA in History, I realized that nutrition was really my passion. I went back to school to become a dietitian and it was the best decision I ever made.

Danny S., RD

Long Beach, California

Acute Care

For me, Dietitians on Demand provides an opportunity to save ahead for an early retirement. (Who knows, maybe hitting to road as a traveling RD in my RV?) On a serious note, as a manager, it lets me see what others are doing in the field and meet other dietitians in the community. It forces me to stay current and up-to-date on the literature.

Favorite advice to share with patients/clients: Don’t eat anything bigger than your first. This quote was from my fabulous CDE preceptor during my internship. Believe it or not, any compliments or success stories I hear from patients and client all revolve around this simple statement.

After looking into many career paths, my passion for food, people, health and creativity led me into the field of dietetics. Now I’m able to provide the best nutrition to people to improve their health.

What is your favorite thing about working with Dietitians on Demand: As I moved into a consultant role, I love working with Dietitians on Demand because of the varied opportunities and settings. It has expanded my dietetic experience and allows for constant change and meeting new people.

Long Term Care

Dietitians on Demand offers great flexibility; you can choose a short or long term assignment depending on your availability. DOD offers job opportunities at some great hospitals and healthcare facilities.

Favorite advice to share with patients/residents: 1) Do what works best for you. 2) I also like to tell them: You need a balanced diet to help strengthen your body when you are sick and weak.

Rebekah G., RD

Chicago, Illinois

Acute Care

I am newer to the Chicago area, so working with Dietitians on Demand allowed me to work in a few different hospitals. This way, I am able to get a better understanding of the different neighborhoods and suburbs in the area. I also appreciate the flexibility a job like this offers.

Why did you choose a career in dietetics: I wanted to combine my culinary background with nutrition so I could help people get excited about food and health again. I believe a large part of being healthy is enjoying what you eat, and it’s easier to do that when you know how to make healthy food taste good. I think it’s key to teach people these type of skills. Once I began my internship, I discovered I had a knack for nutrition support and critical care, an area I’m still very passionate about.

Lisa P., RD

Glendive, Montana; Las Vegas, Nevada; Minot, North Dakota

Traveling Dietitian

I love the flexibility working with Dietitians on Demand allows me in where I work and how long I work there. My husband and I like to travel and get bored being in one place too long. DOD posts new positions nearly everyday nationwide with varying time requirements. This gives us the freedom to explore the country and move around as frequently as we like.

What’s your favorite part about being a traveling RD: When you travel, things are always changing. Things around you are always new and exciting making life feel like a constant vacation! Each place you move to, you get to live like a local versus speed through like a tourist. You never get into a rut or too much of a routine. Every job teaches you something new making you a stronger employee and dietitian for the years to come. Plus, you make so many new friends and get to work with so many more wonderful people than you would staying in the same job for years at a time.

Char K., RD

Yankton, South Dakota

Long Term Acute Facility (LTAC)

One of my favorite things about Dietitians on Demand has been the personal attention that I have received each step of the way.  This goes from the emails, phone calls, and any correspondence that I have had with DOD.  I appreciate the contact at the start of my assignment to make sure things were going well and to discuss any concerns that I had.

What’s the best advice you give to patients/clients: I am very down to earth with patients and tell them I am just as human as they are. Fighting for personal health is an ongoing battle for everyone and just because I am a Dietitian, doesn’t make me exempt from fighting too.

The dietitian sent to us was able to fill our critical care RD role after two days of training. She is reliable, skilled, and caring. She has already been requested back and she starts next week.

                    [post_content] => Kellie, the dietitian sent, was excellent at communicating patient needs with staff and providers. Her daily interaction with the kitchen staff helped them to better understand individual patient needs, and helped us to provide a better standard of care. Kellie was involved daily with two multidisciplinary teams. As a result of her participation with the Behavioral Health Unit, we have been able to provide more accurate anthropometrics and nutrition documentation on patients at higher nutritional risk.

In our industry it is more common to hear complaints than compliments, but I did want you to know what Miranda did a great job and you all are fortunate to have her on board with you.

            [post_content] => Oceana has been a great asset. Oceana interacts with the patients and staff well. She's not afraid of the kitchen (e.g. speak w/ staff about supplements or special meal requests, etc). And, she's a self-starter. She was also here during joint commission and we had no food and nutrition deficiencies. I felt very comfortable during my absence knowing there was adequate coverage.

Oceana has been a great asset. Oceana interacts with the patients and staff well. She’s not afraid of the kitchen (e.g. speak w/ staff about supplements or special meal requests, etc). And, she’s a self-starter. She was also here during joint commission and we had no food and nutrition deficiencies. I felt very comfortable during my absence knowing there was adequate coverage.

We greatly appreciate your dedicated service and the excellent staff relief you have afforded us for these past six months. What a great company!

I wanted to tell you in person that I am very satisfied with everything!  You were easy to work with (I had not used this program before), our coverage was here as soon as we needed her, and Michelle did a great job for us. Thank you for helping to make us successful!

Customer service from DOD is outstanding, Janella makes me feel like we are her only client, as soon as I have a need I swear she doesn’t sleep until she finds us an RD. The dietitian sent to us was able to fill our critical care RD role after two days of training. She is reliable, skilled, and caring. She has already been requested back and she starts next week.

Ashlyn has been the model of professionalism, customer service, and clinical knowledge. I have been beyond impressed with not just the quality of her work, but the content of her character. Despite the fact that Ashlyn came to us with a bredth of knowledge, she also came with an open mind. This trait lent her to being approachable, engaging, and simply fantastic to work with. Send more like Ashlyn!

Kellie, the dietitian sent, was excellent at communicating patient needs with staff and providers. Her daily interaction with the kitchen staff helped them to better understand individual patient needs, and helped us to provide a better standard of care. Kellie was involved daily with two multidisciplinary teams. As a result of her participation with the Behavioral Health Unit, we have been able to provide more accurate anthropometrics and nutrition documentation on patients at higher nutritional risk.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know what an asset Miranda was at our facility for the 9 weeks that our dietitian was out.  I would be glad to work with her anytime as she appears to be a fast learner and is able to fit-in in a short amount of time. In our industry it is more common to hear complaints than compliments, but I did want you to know what Miranda did a great job and you all are fortunate to have her on board with you.

We are so pleased we called Dietitians on Demand! Alicia and Ryan were responsive to the immediacy of our needs. They were efficient, organized and exceptionally easy to work with from first contact to end of contract.  Our dietitian was highly professional, energetic, and conscientious. She worked well with our staff and was extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend Dietitians on Demand, and their Dietitians on staff. We are very fortunate you have expanded into our area!

Connie E. Phillips, RD, LDN – Director of Food Service
Rockville, Maryland

Dietitians on Demand has consistently provided service that has exceeded my expectations. All of the Dietitians have been professional, easy to work with, and extremely knowledgeable. You were able to turn an area of weakness into a strength for this hospital. Thank you!
