Clarinda,IA | (January 8, 2020)
Clarinda Regional Health Center (CRHC) Director of Ancillary Services Greg Jones has announced the hiring of Kelli Wilmes as a Registered Dietitian. Wilmes officially began her employment on Monday January 6th, 2020.
Jones says, “I’m excited to welcome Kelli into our work family. She has broad and extensive training in the field of dietetics. Kelli will be a tremendous asset to our patients. Wilmes will join our current dietitian, Melissa Baier, in growing our presence through outreach programs in Clarinda and our surrounding communities.”
Wilmes completed her B.S. of Dietetics at Missouri State University in 2006 and M.S. of Nutrition at Texas Woman’s University in 2009. After a few years of practice as a Clinical Dietitian she began teaching nutrition courses at the collegiate level. Most recently since 2013, she has been an instructor at Northwest Missouri State University.
Jones adds, “Kelli will bring a diverse understanding of nutrition in many areas to supplement the already strong dietetics department. We will intentionally be looking to grow current programing and develop outreach with both dietitians in the community setting to include youth programs.”
