During the month of August we are introducing members of the 2017-18 Board!
Introducing Colleen Glenn, our new program chair! Colleen is a Registered Dietitian with a BS degree in Nutrition and Dietetics. She currently works at Land O’Lakes and has worked on several projects including updating nutrition labels to comply with the new FDA labeling requirements. She is now on the labeling team supporting the Purina feed business. Prior to her work at Land O’Lakes she spent over three years in the clinical arena working in an enteral business setting ensuring Medicare Part B coverage for patients and leading clinical trainings for the employees.
As program chair, Colleen hopes to increase attendance at meetings and also to increase our member count overall, including a variety of members in age, profession, education and diversity. She also hopes to increase the appeal and interest of our organization and programing by providing unique, fun, and educational events. And lastly she hopes to cut costs of programing and raise funds for the group through a successful fundraiser.
Colleen joined FCS Professionals as a way to increase her network in the food industry when she was making a career change. She received so much support from our group. She says, “I enjoy being a FCS Professionals member because of all the wonderful connections I have made and continue to make with fellow food and nutrition enthusiasts! I am looking forward to serving on the board this year by providing programming that will be fun, unique, and educational for our members!”
On a personal note, Colleen enjoys spending time outside biking the lakes, rollerblading, walking and in the winter she enjoys broomball. She also loves trying new restaurants and recipes, playing board games, and spending time with family and friends. She tries to make it home to Ohio to visit her family, including three nephews and one niece, as often as possible.
