I have 31 years of experience, and specialize in the field of nutrition with specific knowledge in the areas of nutrition and disease, nutritional supplements and weight loss and body composition. I have published on such topics as supplement comparisons, nutrient function and metabolism and nutrition effects on exercise performance or weight loss. I have testified on nutritional supplement patent infringement. Although I have never had a single course in marketing, I have spoken and written to many nutrition marketing audiences (and gotten rave reviews). In fact, in a recent written industry grant application, the reviewers commented how my marketing background really came through. This shows that I can adapt my communications to diverse audiences. Also, this marketing mentality is now being used as I start commercializing my research.
