Dietitians On Demand Ten Club Honorees
Recognizing 10 years of work for Dietitians On Demand
In 2018 we started a new tradition: The Dietitians On Demand Ten Club.
Every year, we welcome a select group of dietitians into the prestigious Ten Club. These Registered Dietitians have worked for Dietitians On Demand for 10 years! They’ve worked temporary jobs, accepted permanent jobs, traveled for a job, worked our jobs on the side of their permanent positions, and so much more. We’re thankful and in awe of these amazing dietitians and while we probably can’t begin to thank them enough, we’re going to try.
As a member of the Ten Club, these outstanding consultant dietitian’s names will be showcased on the honorees wall at DOD headquarters. This wall serves as a reminder to everyone in the office about why we do what we do. From day one we’ve been all about dietitians, and when we see these names we’re reminded why we love our dietitians. These amazing nutrition professionals are hard working, loyal, motivated, flexible, driven, experts in the field and most of all, a joy to work with. We cannot thank these wonderful Dietitians On Demand consultants enough!
2021 Ten Club inductees
This year, both inductees are very unique. Sherry and Suchitra have not only dedicated ten years to Dietitians On Demand, they have also shown incredible loyalty to their assignments, having spent several years working at a single site. As a result, their clients, patients, and residents have benefitted from high quality and continuity of care. For that, we salute them both.

Taking a full-time contract in Virginia with Dietitians On Demand represented his first big move with this wife, from San Diego to his home state of Virginia. “I love the flexibility, friendly and attentive staff and varied opportunities.

You guys are the right blend of professional savvy/know how and FUN.”
Marilyn Trownsell, RD, LD
Marilyn has worked on and off for Dietitians On Demand since 2008 in 12 assignments. She said, “I think Ryan and Alicia [company CEO and Founder, respectively] had an ingenious idea.

Miranda Cerovski, MS, RD, LD
