Professor Childs has been an adjunct faculty member at the National University of Natural Medicine for the past four years. Serving as an educator and mentor to students in intro/advanced nutrition, diet and disease and graduate level courses in business and childhood nutrition.
“I appreciate educating a new generation of nutrition students, to help them incorporate whole foods nutrition into their own professional journeys and bring these tenants to a larger audience. It is inspiring to work with students as they push me to continue to research, learn and always bring up new questions and thoughts I have not considered.”
Professor Childs received a Masters in Nutrition from the University of Alabama, her registered dietitian license through an accredited program at the University of Virginia and a Bachelor of Science in Nutrition from Cornell University. She currently provides nutrition counseling for those struggling with morbid obesity. This work inspired her to focus her graduate studies on childhood nutrition; how/what/when foods are introduced, how our food relationships begin to develop in early childhood and how we can help create a positive food foundation and prevent disease starting with children.
