Congrats to me!

I’ve been chosen as the “Emerging Dietetic Leader of the Year” for the Virginia Dietetics Association for 2012.  I’m really honored for this recognition, and very touched.

I’ve had the rare opportunity to pretty much have exactly the job I want.  I thoroughly appreciate my clients and my job, I know I’m making a difference, I’m able to balance it with taking great care of myself, and I get paid for doing what I love!  What more could I ask for?  Oh yeah, certain insurance companies getting their act together.  Ah well.

All and all, life is good, and I’m very grateful.

So many people have mentored me and supported me along this journey, encouraged me, and helped me pick myself up after the occasional faceplant. I am tremendously grateful to all of them.

Just to mention a few: an acupuncturist/chiropractor who encouraged me to dream not just what seemed possible, but my perfect job, and my former supervisor and gifted photographer, Doris Kuehn who gave me my logo as a birthday present. And I am particularly grateful to my best friend and biggest supporter, DH (AKA Erik Harris).  He was there from designing website to helping out at my first class, and encouraging me on each time it seemed like too big of a dream.

And, of course, these two, who have “mmrrrr”ed their encouragement.  Or at least, they have when they are awake.

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.
