Holly Huye, PhD, RD, received a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Loyola University in New Orleans, LA in 1990. She worked in advertising and print production for 14 years before returning back to school to earn a Master’s of Science in Nutrition and Food Systems in 2007, and a Doctorate in Nutrition in 2011 through The University of Southern Mississippi. Holly is an Assistant Professor and Program Director in Nutrition and Dietetics at Southern Miss. She was recently awarded a fellowship and summer teaching grant to integrate the humanities across the nutrition curriculum in her department. She hopes, by reflecting on her personal experiences, she can provide a safe environment for students to write their own reflections that will foster compassion and consideration for patient-client perspectives.
