Meet Your Dietitian
I received a BS in Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise from Virginia Tech in 2008. I also completed a Masters of Public Health from the Virginia Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine in 2011. Since graduation, I have worked in a wide variety of settings that add to my skill and knowledge in dietetics. I look forward to meeting with you and making your experience with Liberty Dining Services a great one!

Gluten Intolerant Options Program
The Gluten Intolerant Options Program (G.I.O.) was designed to allow students with a gluten dietary restriction to swipe for a gluten-free item at no additional charge. Students on this program must submit proper documentation and be approved by the Campus Dietitian. Students not on this program can still get gluten-free items at dining locations by simply paying an additional fee.
We take pride in sourcing wholesome ingredients, preparing recipes accurately and providing nutritional analysis and ingredient statements through our online menus and nutrition calculator. We are all passionate about serving students. From general manager to front line servers, we work diligently to address students’ specific needs, especially those with food allergies, Celiac disease, or special diet needs.
A team approach led by you, our educated consumer, is the best preparation for a safe school year free of allergic reactions. We want to meet one-on-one with all of our customers who have individual dining needs to ensure that your dining experience is safe, delicious, and social. If you have a food allergy/special diet concern, please call or send us a note using the feedback form.
