Emma Sickles, dietetic intern

Hi everyone! My name is Emma Sickles, and I am a Colorado native. I grew up in various parts of both Adams and Arapahoe counties.

I graduated from Colorado State University in 2018 with my B.S. in Food Science and Human Nutrition with a concentration in Dietetics. During my time at CSU, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to work with CSU Extension in their health and food safety office. Through this position, I have learned how to use social media as an effective tool for nutrition education and developed a passion for food safety and public health. At CSU, I also discovered my passion for teaching when I was given the opportunities to direct a study group for a human nutrition course and to work as an undergraduate teaching assistant for a human physiology class.

I approach nutrition with my passion for women’s rights and community health. I want to use nutrition as a tool to empower women, girls, and communities to accomplish their most important goals and achieve optimal states of mental, physical, and emotional well-being.

In my free time, I love running half marathons, practicing yoga, promoting body positivity, fermenting kombucha, hiking, spending time with my family, and snuggling with my dog, Franklin!
