Welcome to CBDiekman!

I am delighted to share with you a bit about who I am and why I think you will find me a great choice as a partner for your food and nutrition projects.

As a Registered Dietitian, I have worked in the media for close to thirty years. I spent almost 15 years as an on-air nutrition reporter in St Louis Missouri. During that time I developed nutrition stories, interviewed experts, and delivered the food and nutrition message on-air in either weekly or bi-weekly newscasts. I also was the voice of the “Eating Right” minute that aired on WBBM radio in Chicago for 15 years. While I have left the media world, I still provide input to media colleagues on stories they are developing on the topics of food and nutrition.

In addition to my media work, I have consulted with food companies, government agencies, and physician’s offices. For the last twenty-plus years, I was the Director of University Nutrition at Washington University in St Louis. While all of these areas may appear to be very different, the commonality is that I was the voice of nutrition science and how it moves from the textbook to product development, wellness program development, menu, recipe or product creation, performance nutrition, or individual client needs.

My ability to take the science of nutrition and turn it into simple easy to understand tips or guidance is the reason so many companies chose to work with me over the years.
