Who have I written for?
Where else do I write? 
  • I’m the social media, blog, and newsletter editor for Cactus IFT, the Arizona chapter of Institute of Food Technologists.
  • One can't always blog; one has a mortgage and has to pay the bills... so, luckily, I also have a day job as a staff nutritionist and science editor for Isagenix, which I enjoy. Note that the views expressed on this blog or in my tweets are not representative of the company's views.
