Christina Lemon, MS, RD, CD recalls the stress she felt sophomore year in college, trying to determine her career path. She chose dietetics and has never once regretted it! After completing her BA in Nutrition at Albion College (Albion, MI) and her dietetic internship at Henry Ford Hospital (Detroit, MI), Christina worked many years as a clinical, wellness and chief clinical dietitian at hospitals in Lansing, MI and Madison, WI. Upon completing her MS in Nutritional Sciences at UW-Madison, she worked briefly as a lecturer and several years as a research specialist in the Department of Nutritional Sciences, the School of Nursing and the School of Medicine and Public Health. Her career has been enriched by leadership opportunities with WAND, including President, State Legislative Chair, Outcomes Management Initiative Chair and Professional Education Chair. Christina is a recipient of WDA’s Medallion Award (2007) and ADA’s Award for Grassroots Excellence (2008).
