Hello, my name is Michelle and I am a Region 9 Sodexo intern in Chicago, IL. I have completed my clinical and food service rotations so far and have started completing my community hours.
I completed my food service management rotation at a corporate office cafe and had the opportunity to create my own meal, as well as educate the employees on eating a balanced plate. It was very rewarding to educate the employees on how to assemble balanced meals and offer a new dish in the cafe. In coordinating my menu for the cafe, I was able to gain valuable management experience and my preceptors were very helpful in guiding me through the process.
I also had the privilege of working with the corporate dietitian from my food service site. I gained 1:1 counseling tips from her and got to learn about a different career in the dietetics field.
I have thoroughly enjoyed all the experiences this internship has offered me thus far and I am looking forward to completing the remainder of my rotations.
