Food and Health has always been an interest to this native New Orleanian. Our rich agricultural history in Louisiana has not only shaped our regional food preferences, but is now influencing other parts of our country. People visit Louisiana not just to see our beautiful scenery, but because they want to eat our delicious food.
One of the things Ms. Sloan enjoys about being a Registered Dietitian is teaching people how to eat healthier while keeping many of our traditional foods appealing. Learning the history and origins of our Louisiana foods is something Ms. Sloan loves to not only learn for herself but to teach to people concerned about their health.
Prior to joining the faculty at Nicholls State, Ms. Sloan spent the last 10 years as the Nutrition Education Coordinator for the State of Louisiana Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC). She also has over 10 years of experience working in the clinical setting with cardiac rehab and diabetes treatment programs.
When not teaching, Ms. Sloan enjoys watching football, reading, trying new recipes, learning to grow vegetables and herbs and researching family genealogy.
