Pearls of Wisdom

 

From: Tatiana Vélez 

1. Which is one of your most memorable experiences as an RD?

 

Getting my first few patients in my private practice. Even though I knew I was very well prepared for my sessions and counseling my first few patients, building confidence and getting rid of the imposter syndrome was something I worked on. I was VERY excited but also nervous and many times didn't believe that my private practice was going so well at first. It was a *pinch me moment.*

 

2. What characteristics do you wish to see in future RDs?

 

Really depends on individual personality and area of practice. The more diversity, the better! However, I do believe that current nutrition students have undergone so many societal obstacles and seen changes in our career considering the events of these previous years. We're at a turning point in RDs being more compassionate than ever, more vocal on naming systematic factors that affect our health, and excellent analytical thinkers and communicators when it comes to health information, to name a few.

 

3. One pearl of wisdom for RD2Bs:

 

Find and connect with other Dietitians who you share similar values and look up to. Networking and finding a group of support in our profession is important for creating a safe space for questions, doubts and direction in your career development.
