Ann Marie Krautheim
Growing up in Northwest Ohio my mother was a nurse and my dad was an engineer. I developed a respect for science, food, and its connection to health and wellness, which remains a passion today.
As a registered dietitian, I believe in giving back to my profession by actively serving on the boards of state and regional dietetic associations. Passionate about the well-being of our youth, I serve on the Advisory Board for YMCA Storer Camps.
An authority on public private partnerships in youth wellness, I am a frequent speaker on successful models and case studies at the intersection of corporate purpose and youth wellness. Honored to be recognized for my contributions in nutrition education, I was awarded the Young Dietitian of the Year Award by the Ohio and American Dietetic Associations. In addition, I was awarded the prestigious Anita Owen Award for Innovation in Nutrition Education from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in 2006.
