My name is Jessica and I am the Dietary Manager at the Bridges, I just completed my coursework for Dietetics from Iowa State University and am currently in the process of testing to become a Registered Dietician.
I provide individualized nutrition therapy for any health condition, state of life, or goal our resident and their families have in mind. I can create resources to support the residents’ decision-making about food and diet as well as advocate on their desired wishes. I will assist our residents to adopt healthy habits and develop a healthy relationship with food; teach them about health, well-being, and self-care, as well as be a champion to change as the only constant in life.
I have former experience as a certified nursing assistant as well as cook and dietary aide all in senior living, I feel drawn to long-term care and truly consider The Bridges my home.
