As part of the Coordinated Program at Mount Mary University, Sarah completed an internship rotation at Elite Sports Clubs last April. Her preceptor, Rita Larsen said, “Sarah brings a unique set of skills to the company. It is particularly helpful that Sarah has had the educational background, as it will enhance her ability to relate to a wide variety of people and effectively relay nutritional information to members. Today’s professional has to have a wide skill set in order to be successful and we think that Sarah is ready to go!”
