"The food you eat can be the most powerful form of medicine"
Molly Husband received her Bachelors of Arts degree in Sociology, Bachelors of Science degree in Dietetics, and Masters of Science degree in Nutritional Science at California State University Long Beach. Molly was first introduced to nutrition as a high school soccer player, and as an athlete knew the importance of nutrition for optimum physical performance. Yet, it was not until a personal experience involving a loved one that she realized the significant role nutrition plays on quality of life and disease prevention. Molly's passion for nutrition derives from this understanding of both the immediate and long term affects of healthy eating habits. Her goal is to help others apply healthy eating as it fits into their individualized lifestyles, so that they can too understand and experience these benefits.
She started her career working at Saddleback Hospital and Hoag Hospital where she had the opportunity to fine tune her Medical Nutrition Therapy skills. Though she enjoys working at the hospital, she has a passion for providing nutrition counseling in an outpatient setting like we have here at OCWMG. She finds it rewarding to be able to build a relationship, connect, and share the successful progression of her patients. She is excited to be a part of OCWMG because of the well rounded care that is provided for women, and the opportunity to obtain her goal of helping others through nutrition.
Aside from work, Molly enjoys spending time with her friends, family, and boyfriend. She likes to hike and go for runs on the beach, "there is something so peaceful about being at the beach, it always clears my head and puts a smile on my face".
