Anyea Lovette – Internship Director

I enjoy working with our interns not only to give back and support the field of dietetics but also because it is so fulfilling to help the next generation of dietitians apply classroom learning to the real world environment. It is so rewarding to help them find their interests and to watch their confidence grow as the internship progresses.


Megan Lautz – Tech Team

“I love guiding interns on their own path in both traditional and non-traditional areas of dietetics. It is exciting to watch interns grow as they start to apply what they learned in school to the real world!”

Lorraine Butler – Tech Team

“I love working with our interns in general because they bring a fresh, bright perspective and are eager learners. In particular, I enjoy working with them one-on-one so that I can help bolster what they have already learned and fill in any areas where there are gaps. It is satisfying seeing our graduates making a positive difference in the world.
