Swiss Village Hires Fortkamp as Registered Dietitian
Swiss Village is pleased to announce Robin L. Fortkamp as the new Registered Dietitian for the community. Fortkamp, a Licensed Registered Dietitian, is a graduate of Bowling Green State University. She has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Dietetics and Human Nutrition. Most recently, Fortkamp was employed by Peregrine Health Services, Inc. in Ohio as a Regional Dietitian & Dietary Manager. She will begin working for the retirement community on October 21, 2019.
“We are thrilled to welcome Robin to our team,” said Patty Habegger, Director of Food Service. “She has great experience working in many different areas related to nutrition and will be able to provide the Dietary department and our facility with education and best practices to enhance the dining experience for our residents. We are looking forward to having her on staff to interact with our residents, educating them on how to make wise nutritional choices and how those choices will impact their overall health.”
“We are delighted to have a Registered Dietitian as part of our team,” said Alma Ahmetovic, VP of Healthcare Services. “Robin will work closely with our interdisciplinary team, Speech Language Pathologist, and nursing staff to ensure optimal quality care for all of our residents. She will be a valuable addition to our great team.”
“I look forward to working with the dedicated staff at Swiss Village to provide the best nutritional care possible to our residents,” said Robin Fortkamp. “As a Registered Dietitian, I do not promote one specific diet but instead encourage residents to discover what healthy changes they are willing to make and sustain. I thrive on teaching and encouraging others to make healthier choices.”
Fortkamp is from Fort Recovery, Ohio and is excited about the opportunity to work for Swiss Village. In her free time, she enjoys gardening, cooking family dinners, camping, suspense movies, puzzles and painting.
