Sponsored: Meet Leah McGrath, Ingles corporate dietitian
What sort of training or degrees do you have?
I have two undergraduate degrees, a B.A. in Speech Communications from West Chester University and a B.S in Human Nutrition from the University of Maryland and I have done some work towards a Master's in Marketing.
To become a registered dietitian I also completed a dietetic internship - I did mine with the U.S. Army at Walter Reed in Washington D.C. I also passed a national board exam to become a registered dietitian and complete annual continuing education to keep my certification. Over the years I've had special training in food safety certification, cooking, as well as wellness and health promotion.
How long have you been the dietitian for Ingles and what experience did you have before working for Ingles?
I was an officer and dietitian in the U.S Army for four years on active duty. After resigning my active duty commission I worked in public health in South Carolina for a little over a year as a WIC (Women, Infants and Children) Director in the Low Country Health District. I have been working with Ingles for the past 14 years!
