Sara Umphfleet – President Elect

Practice Area:
Clinical Nutrition and Dietetics, Diabetes and Weight Management

Years of Service and Positions Held:
Before stepping into my President Elect role I served as Council of Professional Issues Chair for the previous 2 years. I have been a member of IAND since becoming a Registered Dietitian in December 2016. I recently became involved in the Website committee. I am actively involved with my district, MVAND. I have been on the Nominating committee for the previous 3 years. I received the Recognized Young Dietitian of the Year (RYDY) award.

Favorite part about being a RD:
My favorite part is helping individuals decode all the nutrition information and how there are no “right” answers. I love to provide my clients with independence in making food choices, confidence in the kitchen, and the joy back in eating.

Hobbies or Favorite ways to spend your time:
I love going back to my hometown in Iowa to spend time with my family. Since the pandemic began my hobbies have been sleeping, leisure reading, binge-watching tv shows/movies and playing guitar hero.
