Sarah Biehl

Hello! My name is Sarah Biehl and I am a senior dietetics major from St. Louis, MO. This past summer I had the amazing opportunity to work for the Campus Kitchens Project at Saint Louis University, where I helped recover food from grocery stores and use it to cook delicious and healthy meals for low-income individuals! I am also the membership vice president of Gamma Phi Beta, and a member of Dietetics Student Association and Kappa Omicron Nu. With a passion for both nutrition and helping others, I am so excited to be a Bodyworks counselor to help others achieve their health goals! In the future, I hope to become a Registered Dietitian and work with seniors or in a community setting.

Chelsey George

Hi! My name is Chelsey George, and I am a senior Dietetics major from Atlanta, Illinois. I work at Proctor Hospital here in Peoria as a Diet Office Technician as well as a Lifestyle Wellness Coach. This past summer I worked as a National Association of College and University Food Service management intern. This has helped me gain a tremendous amount of leadership and communication skills. I have a passion for health, nutrition, and helping others, and the dietetic field encompasses all of that. I am affiliated with the Dietetic Student Association (currently as president), the National Society of Leadership and Success (as vice president), Up ‘til Dawn executive board, Kappa Delta Sorority, and Kappa Omicron Nu. I love being involved, and I love helping others discover the greatness of nutrition! My dream is to work in a hospital as a prenatal dietitian, a geriatric dietitian, or as a VA dietitian. I spend way too much time in the grocery store, and I love taking on different group fitness classes!

Megan Price

Hi, I’m Megan! I am currently a senior dietetics major, a member of Bradley’s cross-country and track teams, manager of Bodyworks, and work in the dietary department at OSF. Through my experiences as a collegiate athlete, I have experienced first-hand just how important it is to fuel for good performance and overall health. As a future RD, I hope to help other athletes and non-athletes alike learn to love what they eat, avoid restrictive dieting, and use food as a tool to reach their health and wellness goals. After graduation, I hope to obtain a dietetic internship in the counseling and/or clinical settings and one day work to help athletes find freedom from restrictive dieting and eating disorders!

Hello! My name is Genevieve Prushinski and I am a senior Dietetics and Psychology major from Princeton, IL. I'm passionate about nutrition and believe every food can fit into a healthy lifestyle - it's all about balance and moderation! Here on campus I am President of Kappa Omicron Nu, an Arnold-Wheeler Scholar in the FCS Department, a member of the Dietetic Student Association, and involved with the Newman Center. I recently completed a research project examining the prevalence and predictors of "The Freshman 15" among first-year college students. This past summer I worked at Perry Memorial Hospital where I was able to spread the word about healthy eating in the community through Farmer's Markets, cooking demos, and education events. In my free time I enjoy theatre and choir, staying active, watching Netflix, and spending time with friends and family.

Emily Witt

Hi, my name is Emily Witt, and I am a Senior Dietetics major from Orland Park, IL. I am the treasurer of Bradley’s Dietetic Student Association, the IT chair of BodyWorks, and an active member of Epsilon Sigma Alpha, a community service sorority. Bradley’s Academic Exploration Program helped me realize my passion for people and healthy living through a series of surveys and personal questionnaires. I currently work in food service under Registered Dietitians at my local hospital, Palos Community Hospital. Watching the Registered Dietitians interact with the patients of this hospital, I realized my interest in clinical dietetics. After graduation in May 2017, I plan to pursue my clinical nutrition passion in my Dietetic Internship to earn a Masters in Nutrition. I do not know which way the clinical world of Dietetics will take me, but I hope to explore my options in my Dietetic Internship. I am excited to be a counselor for BodyWorks, because I get to help other students just like me find a more nutritious and healthy lifestyle!
