Hi! I’m Christina (Sielbeck) Vimini, otherwise known as Chrissy, your average nutrition-loving 20-something.
A proud Terp, I graduated from University of Maryland College Park in Spring 2010 with a degree in Dietetics. During the end of my senior year, I was matched to the University of Maryland College Park Dietetic Internship class of 2010-2011. This internship is the only kind in the country with a focus on information technology and nutrition communications. After a busy internship year (all documented within Mission: Dietitian) I passed the RD exam and started my career in El Paso, Texas!
Throughout my career as a Registered Dietitian, I plan to explore the various opportunities the field has to offer, ranging from clinical dietetics to one day earning a masters degree in nutrition or public health. I would also like to integrate my nutritional knowledge into spreading information to the public via information technology, such as maintaining a web site, writing articles, blogging, and using social media. Speaking of- check out my electronic portfolio, originally an internship project! Additionally, as an Army wife, I have a whole new set of challenges ahead of me, especially with moving to different parts of the country every few years.
This blog, Mission: Dietitian, serves as a sort of personal experiment, as well as a way to communicate to others what goes on in the life of a dietetic intern and new dietitian. Feel free to leave a comment or any questions!
