Graduate Stories

“I found my calling with my internship bariatric rotation and was offered a job there upon graduation. I am passionate about helping patients improve their wellbeing.  I found my dream job!” – Michelle Moser  2020

"Before starting my rotations, I told myself to keep an open mind as to what direction I would like to take my dietetics career post-graduation. I had no idea I would fall in love with food service until my rotations at Miami Valley Hospital! They provided me with amazing experiences, opportunities, and terrific mentors to guide me in the right direction. Now, I am the Food Service Director at a 150 bed facility within 6 months of graduation. I have found my calling and I truly could not be more grateful for my internship opening that chapter of my book for me." – Taylor Paeth  2021

"Being an intern at Miami Valley Hospital allowed me to step into my first role as a registered dietitian feeling prepared and confident. From growing in my critical thinking skills at a level one trauma center to developing my counseling skills in various community settings, I was challenged to become the best version of myself. Without the experiences and mentorship I received while at MVH, I would not have landed my first position as a clinical dietitian working at one of the largest hospital systems in Indianapolis." – Emilee Pfieffer
