My name is Jennifer Adkins Ernst and I’m a nutritionist, educator and author. I’m so excited to introduce you to my new online course.
The course is based on my successful book Untangling the Nutrition Web in Career Development. I was inspired to write the book shortly after finishing my master’s degree in nutrition education when I heard a panel discussion of seasoned nutrition professionals talk about their careers. The breadth and depth of their careers was amazing and I was inspired to develop a conceptual tool that would help people visualize how many options are available beyond the traditional roles. That grew into a full-fledged personal and career development tool used for 23 years by thousands of individuals.
In addition to the book business, I have worked as a nutrition educator in mostly low-income settings with adults and children in homes, prisons, community centers, schools and universities. I broadened my skills along the way in fundraising, website development, technology, research and public speaking. Recently, I earned another master’s degree in curriculum and instruction.
