Before becoming a Registered Dietitian, I spent the first decade of my career working in major New York City advertising agencies. My time as a hard-driving advertising executive taught me to build strategic and tactical plans for major corporations and manufacturers, a skill that's transferrable to many areas, including nutrition.
Healthy Business Basics
Does the thought of accepting insurance cause fear and anxiety? Are you curious about accepting insurance but not sure where to start? On the fence about accepting insurance at all? I have served as a reimbursement representative for Nutrition Entrepreneurs DPG and attended training with the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics. I can help you get your questions answered and make an informed decision.
FINANCIAL TRACKING TOOLKIT
If you’re not currently using a formal system of tracking your finances, it’s time to start. As a business owner, it’s important to track where the money is coming from – and where it’s going. My custom spreadsheet helps to monitor your business’s profits and losses. For those who accept reimbursement, this document will also help to track payments and assess profits and turnaround time from insurance companies. A tutorial video has also been provided to help learn how to use the document for easy tracking.
