Food is medicine for Sarah Stapelmann: CBHA introduces new registered dietitian

Sarah Stapelmann feels fortunate to combine her interest in science with her love of cooking to create the ideal career for herself. “I’ve always loved gardening, cooking, finding new recipes – and I’ve always enjoyed science, too,” Stapelmann says. “Nutrition just wove all those together for me.”

Originally from Syracuse, New York, Stapelmann began making her way west several years ago, stopping first in Wisconsin. While working in her first career as a forensic firearms examiner for the State of Wisconsin, she returned to college to pursue her dream of becoming a registered dietitian.

Stapelmann says she was drawn to the opportunity at CBHA because she recognizes that the commitment to patients at CBHA is “second to none,” and she wanted to be part of that. “I can’t wait to help patients become the best version of themselves. I really believe that food is medicine, and that we can use it to help treat many health conditions. And the variety of people I’ll be seeing is really exciting for me – from pregnant or nursing moms to people needing help managing chronic conditions.”
