MS, RD, LD
Becoming a dietitian for Hy-Vee in 2003 felt like a natural fit for Judy Fitzgibbons, MS, RD, LD. Early in her career she operated a grocery shopping service and for 10 years wrote a nationally syndicated newspaper column that evaluated new food products.
“Hy-Vee provides a wonderful setting where I can help consumers use the best nutrition science in practical, down-to-earth ways. Food’s meant to be flavorful and appealing as well as nutritious. “
Judy draws upon her diverse experience to assist her customers: Extension Service nutritionist, clinical dietitian, community college instructor, hospital weight management and nutrition counselor, and corporate wellness consultant. She especially enjoys helping customers find solutions for weight management, diabetes and food intolerances.
Judy earned her master's degree in human nutrition from Iowa State University and her bachelor's degree in home economics from Oregon State University.
In 2008 Judy received the Recognized Outstanding Dietitian award from the Iowa Dietetic Association.
