Who: Catherine "Cissy" Wilmoth, RDN, LD
What: Outpatient Dietitian. I am employed by Washington Regional Medical Center but I am contracted to the University of Arkansas's Pat Walker Health Center. Within the Primary Care Clinic of the student health center I provide outpatient nutrition counseling to students & work on our multidisciplinary Eating Disorder Treatment Team.
Where: Fayetteville, AR
When: I graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2002 with a BS in Human Environmental Sciences. I completed my dietetic internship at St. Louis University in 2003.
Why: After changing majors multiple times I fell into a nutrition class with an excellent teacher. My curiosity for the science of food & human nutrition has kept me engaged in this field ever since. From the beginning of my career I have found so much joy in outpatient nutrition counseling. Over the last 3 years I have found a deep passion for the field of disordered eating & the importance of using a non-dieting, health focused approach with all clients. Over the last 2 years I have completed over 50 hours of continuing education in the area of disordered eating. I am currently in my second year of paid supervision with an iaedp approved supervisor. And fingers crossed I will earn the iaedp credential Certified Eating Disorder Registered Dietitian (CEDRD) soon.
Fun Fact: Over the last year I have been doing Pilates & the reformer machine makes me feel like a beast! I like hip hop & movie scores....among other styles of music!
