She graduated with a BS in Nutritional Sciences from Penn State University and completed her dietetic internship with Sodexo Allentown. While completing her internship, she worked at WIC providing nutrition counseling to pregnant mothers and children. Upon passing her RD exam, she worked as the RD at an allergist’s office where she interpreted lab values and administered food challenges to food allergic patients.
She then transitioned into healthcare by working as the outpatient dietitian for Easton Hospital.

Concurrent with work experience, Whitney also served on the board of advisers for the Sodexo Dietetic Internship and volunteered as Nutrition Education Chair for the Lehigh Valley Dietetic Association.
While working as the Campus Dietitian at Drexel University, Whitney developed programs that supported the mission of creating an outstanding dining experience with a focus in wellness. She worked cohesively with management and culinary teams to complete menu nutritional analysis and develop creative and innovative new programs. Her work with student athletes and passion for exercise science enabled her to accrue the hours required to become a Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics (CSSD).
