MEMBERSHIP SPOTLIGHT

Taylor Head, MPH, RDN

What is your current position of employment?

I work for Bon Secours Outpatient Nutrition. Working in outpatient nutrition is exciting to me because it never gets boring. I get to work with a diverse patient population on a diverse array of nutrition goals. I truly enjoy getting to see the progress that my patients are able to make month after month. I am finding more often that the patients I see are struggling to feel heard at their healthcare visits. I try to make it a priority when patients come to see me that they feel heard and are able to get all of the information and tools they may need to be successful with their nutrition goals.

What is the best thing about being part of VAND?

Being part of VAND helps to open a lot of doors and opportunities. I enjoy having the ability to connect with other dietitians. I got to help with and attend the VAND conference last year and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience, including all of the topics that were presented.

 

Tell us something surprising about yourself.

I am terrible at giving directions, especially when it comes to left and right. I in fact only missed one point on my behind the wheel driving test due to the fact that the instructor said “back out the right” and being directionally challenged I backed out to the left. I have a running theory that the direction confusion is due to the fact that I am left-handed and it’s the way my brain is wired. Don’t worry my fiancé still lets me give directions and we eventually get where we need to be (lol). 

 

What are your favorite things to do outside of work?

Outside of work I like to stay busy, as a typical member of Gen Z I have a hard time sitting still. I live on 10 acres with my fiancé and our 2 dogs. When the weather is nice you will find us all outside working in the garden or getting our hands dirty with some DIY project I have found to do for the house. I have also been trying my hand at learning how to preserve foods though canning which has been a fun and rewarding experience so far.

 

What is your most exciting event planned for 2024?

2024 is going to be an exciting year as I will be getting married in March. In addition to the excitement of getting married, 2024 is going to be a big travel year with trips to Mexico, Spain, France, and Italy planned.
