BENEFITING: ALLIED SERVICES FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: ALLIED SERVICES FOUNDATION
I'm proud to be running the TCS NYC Marathon to help children and adults with disabilities in NE and Central Pennsylvania served by Allied Services. Any size donation will help. Donate $30 in my honor and you'll be eligible to receive a cool moisture-wicking WNEP's Ryan's Run exercise shirt.
I am a Registered Dietitian and Licensed Dietitian-Nutritionist (LDN) from Dunmore, Pennsylvania. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nutritional Sciences from Penn State University, and a Master’s of Science Degree in Nutrition from Marywood University. I am currently a Clinical Dietitian for Priority Healthcare Group overseeing several long term care facilities throughout Southern and Central Pennsylvania.
My love for food and education inspired me to become a registered dietitian where I have the ability to improve an individual’s quality of life throughout food and nutrition. Working in the healthcare field, I advocate for optimal health and wellness through nutrition education and physical activity. As a registered dietitian I work to ensure patients have access to affordable nutrition resources to improve their functional and mental abilities.
I first started running when my husband, who is a Military Police Officer, entered them into a local 5K race. Having never ran long distances before, I became immediately hooked on running once I crossed the finish line. Since then I have run several 5K races, half marathons including the Scranton, Hershey, Myrtle Beach and the Rock ‘n Roll Philadelphia, and the Steamtown Marathon.
Joining WNEP’s Ryan’s Run is an opportunity to support others who are working towards their own great achievements. My inspiration for running comes from my clients and patients. I am not running this for myself, but for those who are unable to run for themselves. To me, being a member of WNEP’s Ryan’s Run is more than just about running a marathon, it is the opportunity to support, motivate, and mentor those who benefit from the many services Allied Services provides to our community. 7H
