Jessica Picone

Which committee did you serve on for the first rotation?
Council on Professional Issues

What has been your favorite experience so far?
It has been really exciting to be a part of the CPI board meetings and have a meaningful contribution in some of the work that is going into planning the spring assembly. It is exciting to even be a part of a meeting that includes conversations with the IAND president.

What benefits has the program brought you?
The program has allowed me to further understand what is involved in planning a spring assembly and the teamwork that is required not only to pull everything together, but to navigate the uncharted territory of a virtual assembly.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In 5 years, I hope to personally be moving towards a leadership role as a Registered Dietitian! This experience is so great because I can see what that looks like and explore the many opportunities that an RD has to be a leader and make an impact in this field.
