… for the last 2+ months? Good question :)
I was matched with a dietetic internship program in Utah in April:
I finished my Didactic Program in Dietetics in May and earned my verification statement:
I traveled to Utah for my dietetic internship orientation, where I learned so much and met some amazing people:
I’ve also taken a leave of absence at work to be able to complete my rotations, which are 40 hrs/wk.
So to sum it up, the past 2 months have been a little crazy :) I feel so great about everything that has happened, though. I distinctly remember researching ‘how to become a registered dietitian’ while sitting at my desk when I worked in Roanoke and thinking to myself ‘I will never be able to do all of that’. And now I’ve cleared 2 huge hurdles to getting there. Also, I am soooo incredibly lucky to work somewhere that will allow me to take this time for professional development. My mind is clear and I can focus on my internship, and that has lifted a huge weight off of my shoulders!
I’ve also been cheating on this blog! Don’t hate me. I consider this be more of a family blog where I feel comfortable talking about our life and putting pictures in here. But I started a new blog called My Life in the QC all about my internship. One thing I did right before the DI Match was google dietetic intern blogs. I loved reading them and knew I wanted to share my experiences with other people… but I wasn’t sure about sharing personal details of other aspects of my life and photos of my family. I’m sure I will keep this blog updated with bigger family events but my primary blogging about my internship will be over at LITQC.
