Speaker Spotlight

Stefanie Dove, RDN, CDN, SNS
Coordinator of Marketing & Community Outreach
Loudoun County (Va.) Public Schools

Give us a sneak peek of what you have planned for ANC! Which sessions are you leading during the conference?
I have the pleasure of leading two preconference workshops with fellow NextGen professionals this year! First up is “Social Media and Graphic Design Shortcuts for the Busy SN Professional” with Liz Roesel, followed by “Ask the RDs: Understanding the WHY—Decoding Nutrition Regulations and Food Allergy Confusion” with Shaun Sawko, RD.

In addition, Amanda Venezia and I are talking about the power of live video during our “#LIVEfrommydesk: LIVE at #ANC19” session; then, team #SNASquadGoals (Amanda Venezia, Donette Worthy, Keshia Williams and I) will be leading a session on the power of lateral mentoring.

People will be meeting up in St. Louis; whom are you most excited to meet?

  • NextGen - I love that the NextGen presence has expanded over the past few years. Networking helps develop and cultivate relationships in our industry, so it is always important.
  • Exhibitors - I enjoy visiting as many exhibitors as possible and always stop by the produce booths to see new resources, nutrition education materials and marketing materials they have available. Exhibitors are the experts for their products and services, so this is a wonderful time to ask specific questions or provide feedback on what would help you and your program.

One fun fact most people don’t know about you?
That I am actually shy. I have mastered the concept of “fake it till you make it.” People do not believe that I get nervous striking up a conversation, but it is true! I can speak in front of thousands and be fine, but there is something about walking up to just a couple of people that is much more difficult for me; I just push myself to get out of my comfort zone. Everyone assumes that because I have a rather bubbly personality that I am also outgoing, but that is not quite true.
