Having trained as a researcher in multiple scientific disciplines, including Food Science, Nutrition, and Herbal Medicine, Susan’s professional experience extends over a broad range of work in education, patient care, and wellness. As both an alumnus of Brigham Young University and Arizona State University, her undergraduate and graduate degrees involved animal research in clinical nutrition and food product development. Her continued work with individual clients and volunteering as a community nutrition instructor has fostered her understanding of individual nutrition needs outside of the research lab. Susan also completed her Master Herbalist training in 2013 in an effort to better serve her clients. Prior to relocating with her family to Arizona in 2014, Susan worked as an adjunct professor in both biology and clinical nutrition at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah. Besides teaching the students, Susan worked to develop an experiential nutrition curriculum for the Westminster nursing program and instructed at the Snowbird Continuing Education Conference for physician assistants and nurse practitioners. She also conducts corporate seminars on nutrition.
