2011 was my year of personal growth. I was accepted into the University of Kentucky's Coordinated Program as a Dietetic Intern to begin three rotations in January of 2012. Aside from it being one of my biggest accomplishments that I've been working towards during my undergrad years at UK, it was the pivotal gateway into my professional life. I've been able to establish relationships, on and off campus, that will stay with me once I graduate in August 2012. My internship, that will begin in a few weeks, consists of three separate rotations that include: Community Nutrition (at UK's Extension Office), Medical Nutrition Therapy (at St. Claire Hospital), and Food Systems Service Management (at UK Good Samaritan Hospital). These three separate venues will hopefully provide me the experience and knowledge that will guide me in my next direction, which may possibly lie in Diabetes Management, Sports Dietetics, and Women's Care. I'm hoping to use this blog to capture my experiences and insights that I will gain along my internship journey. Here's to 6 months of Dietetic exploration!
2011 was also filled with other interesting adventures...
My Cincinnati Chapel and they have been able to provide a chapel that is open to wedding ceremonies of all faiths and accommodate and assist our wedding planning needs.
The Metropolitan Club. Thanks to my mom's business relationship with the event director, we were able to snag this awesome place at a cheaper price than normal. Pretty awesome. I've loved working with their event staff, including their chef, to orchestrate and organize the reception that Danny and I have in mind. There's even more planning to come, which makes me even more excited to plan our next logistical and creative meeting :)

I'm not exactly making any resolutions for 2012, but rather focusing on being happy, healthy, and progressing.
HAPPY NEW YEARS!
