Trisha Brimhall RD, RDN, CD (se habla Español)
I am a registered dietitian whose love of food and cooking led to my education at USU. I graduated with a bachelors degree in Medical Dietetics and a minor in Spanish. I am a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. I am a Certified Lactation Educator and speak fluent Spanish. I have worked as a clinical dietitian at Primary Children's Medical Center, and as a counseling/teaching dietitian for the WIC (Women, Infant and Children) nutrition program and also for the American Heart Association.
I love food and how it nourishes not only our bodies, souls and social environments. I find the interaction between food and the human body to be an amazing orchestration that science continually strives to discover. Second only to this love of food's amazing abilities, is my love of teaching others how to appreciate and enhance their personal relationship with food and health. My goal is not to tell people what to eat, but rather to teach them how to nourish themselves and their families in a way that will ensure life-long health and happiness.
I am a wife and mother of two. I love cooking, entertaining, gardening, wood-working, piano, knitting, sewing, and most any other domestic hobby. As a family we enjoy going camping and exploring the outdoors. If I were to give Americans one piece of nutritional advice, it would be: Cook with your families.
