Sandy, MPH, RD, LD
Sandy has worked at Liberty since October 2010 and says that "working at Liberty has been her best job ever!" Working with the patients, their families and the interdisciplinary team has been a great experience. She loves to share her knowledge and ideas about healthful foods that taste good, and to help guide patients to eat the foods they like while keeping them safe and healthy. She graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in nutrition from the University of Maine and a Master’s degree in public health nutrition from the University of Hawaii. Sandy loves Alaska and has lived in the state for over 30 years. She has a grown daughter and a happy husky-lab mix. In her free time, she enjoys cooking, reading, making things, hiking in the mountains, biking, camping, fishing, skiing, berry picking and doing just about anything outside, as well as spending time with family and friends.
Jennifer graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2001 with BS in Dietetics. She has worked in a vast array of clinical settings around the United States as well as run her own consulting business on the side. Her desire to learn more about new areas of clinical nutrition is evident by her specialty certifications in adult weight management, geriatric nutrition and nutrition support. She is currently studying to obtain her specialty certification in renal disease. Jennifer started working with the Liberty Dialysis team June 2015. Her favorite part of the "job" is getting to know patients and their families as well as making a positive impact on their health. When she is not working, she enjoys going for walks with her family, having tea with friends or flying around the state in their 180 airplane.
Darcy joined the Liberty team early 2019. Prior to dialysis she had a medical background which helps her understand the importance of patient care. She has quickly adapted to her role as one of the Liberty AA’s and has grown a passion for the dialysis community. Darcy was born and raised in Alaska and serving her community while honoring her Alaskan Native culture is important to her. “I am a mother to a 4 year old boy, this keeps me busy at home and also teaches me how to care for others. My goal is to make sure each patient feels the care that I provide. I look forward to the years that will come in my journey with Liberty Dialysis”
