Jen Heringhausen graduated with honors from Michigan State University in 2007 with a bachelor's degree in dietetics and health promotion. Following graduation, Jen completed a dietetic internship program at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, Michigan, and successfully passed the national dietetics registration exam. Jen began her dietetics practice as a WIC (Women, Infants and Children) dietitian in Chicago, Illinois, and in December, 2010, Jen pursued her lifelong dream of becoming a chef by studying culinary arts at Kendall College in downtown Chicago.
After graduation from Kendall in 2012, Jen worked as the head chef of a vegetarian catering company, where she developed hundreds of healthy recipes based on seasonal fruits and vegetables. Jen is a people person, and joining the Hy Vee family will provide Jen the opportunity to share her dietetic and culinary expertise with numerous customers and clients.
