Upon graduation she practiced as a Clinical Research Assistant in Honolulu, Hawaii. She returned to the mainland and completed her dietetic internship in 2015 at the University of Memphis obtaining a M.S. in Clinical Nutrition. Her thesis was completed at St. Jude Children‚Äôs Research Hospital, and was published in the Journal of Nutrition in Clinical Practice. Initially, Casey utilized her clinical nutrition skills in the hospital in-patient ICU before shifting her focus to out-patient weight management in bariatrics. In Nashville, she worked as the Program Dietitian where she assisted in the improvement of patient outcomes by developing and re-vamping support group programs and the center‚Äôs social media presence.

By leveraging her social media skills, Casey worked to successfully grow the practice’s nutrition program by 400% in her first year. Outside of the clinical setting, Casey teaches a plant-based nutrition curriculum in a community cooking class as well as a weight management curriculum to dietetic, pharmacy, and medical students and residents at various universities and medical schools.
