Join us as our host, Carol McDaniel, sits down with guest Melanie Newkirk, our nutritional services interim clinical manager, NICU dietitian and Fit4Allkids instructor.
Melanie, MS, RDN, CSP, LDN, came to All Children’s Hospital Johns Hopkins in the late 1980s as a student. She graduated from the University of Florida and began employment right after college. She earned her master’s degree from Kansas State in 2012 and is currently enrolled at Rutgers working on her doctorate of clinical nutrition.
Melanie has over 20 years of experience working with families to achieve better health. She joined Fit4Allkids in 2006 and loves teaching families about healthy foods and nutrition.
Melanie lives in South Tampa and is a mom to two kids. She thinks the best thing about the Tampa Bay area is that there’s something for everyone. The beaches are her favorite. Since she grew up in St. Petersburg, however, she enjoys seeing the revitalization of the downtown area.
