In the month of August we are introducing each member of the FCS Professionals board
Introducing Liz Sellett, Treasurer! Liz began her career as a registered dietitian in long-term care, sub-acute care, and assisted living facilities for fourteen years. She briefly worked at the University of Minnesota’s Epidemiology Clinical Research Center as the lead dietary interviewer for the Minnesota Heart Study, and she also worked as a renal dietitian for DaVita Dialysis. Wanting to change courses in her career, she studied at Le Cordon Bleu and earned a certificate in Culinary Arts. Since then she has worked for Interactions doing food demonstrations in retail.
As treasurer, her goal is to have a strong grasp of the financial picture of the organization so she can provide appropriate input and guidance. She will achieve this through generating and sharing accurate reports that measure the finances of the group to the board.
Liz wishes she knew about FCS Professionals when she decided to make a career change. Since she has joined the group, she has had the opportunity to learn about all of the possibilities in the area of food and consuming science. She says, ” Getting to know the fascinating career paths of the many members has helped me in figuring out my own path. I look forward to my continued growth through being part of FCS Professionals!”
On a personal note, Liz says she is a “Midwestern girl at heart!” She grew up in a small town in Illinois and attended Indiana University. She moved to Minneapolis for her dietetic internship and hasn’t left yet! She loves living in NE Minneapolis with her two cats. She enjoys cooking as long as she doesn’t have to cook fast. She spends a lot of time creating her own recipes.
