Since her mom passed away from Alzheimer’s Disease, Sue has a special passion for researching and educating on the prevention of this disease, resulting in the co-publication of the book, The Alzheimer’s Prevention Food Guide.

Sue has held leadership positions in the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the Idaho Health Care Association and Treasure Valley Dietetic Association. She is Co-founder, Officer and President of S&S Nutrition Network, Inc. and Co-founder, Officer and Vice President of both LTC Nutrition Consulting and Nutrition and Wellness Associates.
She hopes to age gracefully, reaching her 100th birthday by maintaining close relationships, eating a mostly plant-based diet and drinking fine wine.
