Hello and welcome to the 2023-2024 Memphis Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics!

I would like to start with a heartfelt thank you to the Memphis nutrition community, for your vote of confidence as I embark on a new role, as your MAND President. From a University of Memphis student and intern to a proud first-time Registered Dietitian at Le Bonheur and to now an almost decade long MAND member, I truly hope you find MAND to be a helpful resource at any capacity in your career.

This is going to be a very exciting year for the Memphis community, as our Board of Directors is already hard at work planning numerous networking and continuing education opportunities for you. This profession is full of vibrant, hard-working individuals ready to learn and develop leadership skills. If you’re interested in becoming more involved with our local academy district or serving as a MAND board member, I would love to chat with you about what plans, goals and involvement opportunities you would be looking for.

 I invite you to find us on social media to learn of all the wonderful ways to be involved with MAND this year!
