How it all started


   "I grew up helping tend an extended family garden that provided us with most all of our fruit and vegetables for the year. It was a natural progression for me to major in nutrition science to learn how our bodies use food nutrients. My life’s work has been sharing my knowledge of healthy eating with my family and others.”

   Catherine’s professional career has focused on renal dietetics, pediatric nutrition, fitness, and wellness. Most recently she has used her tech skills to develop health and nutrition games and applications. Her award-winning game, Food Focus: Fruits guides players through five levels to identify 50 fruits from magnified photos. Veggie Garden Palooza is the sequel with over 100 photos. She has also consulted or been on the development team for Breast Cancer Care, App reSolutions, Max’s Plate, Mix and Max, and Go Social

   As a professor, she specializes in using technology in the classroom. In 2012 and 2013, she authored several articles and textbook chapters, including:
   Serious Games in Healthcare
   Food Science: An Ecological Approach
   Games for Health Journal; February 2012
   HIMSS Clinical Informatics Insights: Engaging Patients in Their Nutrition Care
Currently, Catherine is working on health games, developing clinical nutrition apps, and appearing at a number of conferences to speak about Appy Living, a program that guides people on using their iPads for health and wellness. She Chairs the Acacemy's Consumer Health Informatics Work Group.
