Testimonial from Mitzi’s intern:
“It meant so much to me that a dietitian I didn’t even know would take the chance on hiring me as an intern. As a result, I wanted to work hard to impress her and prove that it was the right decision. Mitzi and I continue to have a working relationship even after the culmination of the internship – she often calls on me when she is in the midst of developing new projects or would like to create new educational materials. I learned so much about being a professional but also about being a well-rounded person. Mitzi is the person who inspired me to act on my dreams to become an entrepreneur, and THAT is what I call a success story!”
