Are You Confused on What to Eat?
Are conflicting diet and nutrition messages confusing you? Prabha became a Registered Dietitian to learn the facts and make nutrition more approachable for YOU! Learn more about Prabha below and see what she can offer you.
Why did she choose dietetics?
Prabha was born in India and adopted by a loving family in Michigan. While she transitioned well into her new family, the American diet was a different challenge. She developed multiple food sensitivities followed with a lack of nutrition counseling.
Food was no longer something she looked forward to, but a chore—an injustice she wanted to correct for other people.
Prabha chose to pursue dietetics at Oregon State University and simultaneously served the community with her nutrition knowledge. She began implementing her expertise with the Corvallis Police Department by developing a nutrition-focused wellness program as well as teaching nutrition education and culinary classes to children. Prabha also directed food safety training to the newly hired staff at her college’s dining hall and implemented wellness activities for her sorority to promote mental health.
After graduating, she accepted an internship with California State University. This program allowed her to promote wellness to a variety of populations in diverse settings throughout the Greater Sacramento Area.
After earning her credentials as a Registered Dietitian, she continued nutrition counseling and improving nutrition education. Prabha pursued careers in Bariatrics, skilled nursing, and now outpatient care at a Family Medicine Clinic. She uses Telehealth and videography to connect with a new audience by virtual counseling and producing educational videos. Through this medium, she can overcome healthcare illiteracy, provide nutrition services to patients on their own time, and make nutrition more approachable.
