Growing up near Auburn, Nebraska, Max obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Dietetics from Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, MO.  She went on to complete her dietetic internship at the University of Oklahoma. After completion of her internship, she launched her career with Hy-Vee by serving as a dietitian for Hy-Vee stores in Le Mars, Sheldon, and Sioux Center, Iowa. She later applied for and accepted a position as the dietitian for Plattsmouth Hy-Vee, allowing her to return home to Nebraska. Max is a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the Nebraska Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.  Outside of work she enjoys running, sports, research, and spending time outside on the family farm.

Through her undergraduate and internship training, Max has gained experience in nutrition across all life stages and health conditions, including prenatal/breastfeeding, child/teen, athletic, adult, bariatric, renal, diabetic, cardiac, and gerontological nutrition. She has a passion for holistic nutrition and firmly believes that in order to properly address health complications, more than just diet must be addressed.

Max can provide practical, expert nutrition advice to individuals and groups through classes, community presentations, one-on-one counseling and shopping tours. She will help you see that eating healthfully can and should be delicious! Whether you wish to implement more healthful lifestyle changes or to find guidance with chronic illness, Max is more than happy to help you achieve your health goals through the use of evidence-based nutrition information.
