“I am grateful to receive such a prestigious award,” says Frasieur. “It is truly humbling since there are so many great young dietitians in the state of Washington. I am honored and gratified to know that my love for what I do shines through and has been recognized by the academy.”

Only one registered dietitian per state per year receives the award, which is based on the following criteria: being 35 years of age or younger; active participation in national, state or district dietetic associations; demonstrated active promotion of optimal health and nutritional status of others; and demonstrated leadership either in a professional association or in an employment position. 

“In the profession of dietetics, this award is like a big red neon arrow that points and says this person will be a major contributor and leader in the profession of nutrition and dietetics,” says Debra Boutin, MS, RDN, CD, chair of the Bastyr University Department of Nutrition and Exercise Science. “We are so very proud of her.”

Frasieur is a core faculty member in the Department of Nutrition and Exercise Science. She is also a nutrition supervisor at Bastyr Center for Natural Health and the co-supervisor of the Weigh to Go weight management program. 

In addition to being included in a published list of recognized young dietitians of the year in the Journal of The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, she will receive a formal certificate of recognition from the president of the association and will be honored at the April state conference.
