Rebecca Mrotek is a former Sun Devil graduate from the medical nutrition Master’s program at Arizona State University. She became a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist after interning through the University of Houston. Her passion for helping others started as a diet aide at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, AZ. After almost two years spent at the hospital, she transitioned to skilled nursing facilities, providing life-saving nutrition support and preventing malnutrition amongst the health-impaired and elderly. She played a key role in the decreased rates of weight loss and implemented a dementia program to prevent weight loss within the population and monitor disease progression. While she is so excited to be a part of the Ironwood team, she still has a heart for skilled nursing and consult for facilities during her free time. Her understanding perspective and personal touch within every interaction mirrors the Ironwood culture and has made her an exceptional dietitian.
When she is not working, you can find her next to a barbell at the gym or on a mountain with her six-year-old son. If it is active or outdoors, Rebecca is always down. She believes that the true example of health involves the mind, body, and soul. These three components work in a harmonious relationship and need constant nurturing to function. Rebecca is a huge advocate for mental health within the nutrition field, advocating for intuitive eating and body acceptance. Her values reflect the ideals of Health at Every Size and she firmly believes that if you put love into your heart, body, and mind- it will give love back.
