Dear CA Academy Members,

I extend a warmest welcome to you all as we embark our journey into the new fiscal year 2024-25. This is your California Academy and you matter!

I extend my heartfelt gratitude to each of you for your unwavering support to CA Academy and commitment to improving the lives of individuals and communities through nutrition education, advocacy, and evidence-based practice.

This year, our journey together marks the beginning of the 2nd century for the CA Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and our collaborative efforts to “Empower California dietetic professionals to be science and evidence-based food and nutrition experts, who demonstrate inclusivity in leadership and practice” are pivotal.

I am honored to serve and take our profession and organization forward with a vibrant team of dedicated volunteer leaders at CA Academy, districts and region’s board and above all each one of you as our members who are our driving force. 

In the last few years I visited several states as a speaker and also attended president training in Chicago where all president elect of all 50 states joined. One thing again and again we hear everywhere is that California is a big state, a really big state. Yes we are big! We can make a big impact at CA Academy and even at Academy level. We have close to 12,000 RDNs and 500 NDTRs in CA, more than any state in the United States. If we all join hands  together, we can achieve anything.

I am humbly reaching out to each one of the RDN and NDTR in CA. We want to hear from you and we want each one of you to join us as a member. Join today 

We are stronger together. 

I am eager to collaborate with all of you to advance our profession, address pressing health and professional challenges, and ensure equitable access to nutrition resources for all Californians through sound advocacy, innovative education and evidenced based practice.

I want to thank all past leaders including each committee, council members at all CA Academy, districts and region level for their dedicated services.

Together, let us inspire, innovate, and empower, as we embark on this journey to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve.

Member engagement is at the core of our goals and we encourage you all to get involved and engage in your district/region and CA Academy level. Please visit your Membership Dashboard

We also invite you to join us at CA Academy and contribute meaningfully and make your voice heard. Join as a volunteer council and committee member.

We welcome your Idea/vision to improve your CA Academy, and take our profession forward.

Let’s walk together as one united CA Academy family!

I will close with a quote close to my heart “I not only use all the brains that I have, but all that I can borrow” -Woodrow Wilson


With warm regards,
