I feel fulfilled when I can help patients get back to activities they enjoy doing. I love hearing patients tell me they've been able to get back on their bike, more comfortably play with their grandkids, or get back out in the garden. Plus, I've been given the unique opportunity at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics to use my experience as a dietitian to help patients optimize their body composition, which can reduce joint pain or help them become a better candidate for a joint replacement surgery. It's very rewarding to be able to use both my licenses as a physician assistant and a dietitian in this way.
