Ramona Williams, SLP-Assistant
I received a Bachelor of Science in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Southern University A&M College in Baton Rouge La.
Upon graduation, I became a SLP-A at Aldine School District in Houston Texas. I was employed with the Aldine School District for 3 years. In 1997 I moved to Dallas Texas where I became a SLP-A for Dallas Independent School District where I'm currently still employed. I have worked in the district for 24 years.
In 2009, I became an SLP-A for Care Option for Kids, a pediatric home health agency, part-time. I have been employed with this company for 12 years.
My interest includes articulation and language therapy. My passion is helping others, especially children.
In my spare time, I like reading a good book on my Kindle. I love spending time with my family and friends. I currently mentor young ladies at my school .
B. Elizabeth Terrebonne, Culinary Nutritionist
Hey, Ya’ll! I am Elizabeth Terrebonne from Louisiana. I was raised in Northeast Louisiana in a town called West Monroe.
While I was an adolescent my parents moved to the Northshore. I spent many of my formative years in Mandeville, Louisiana.
Here in the south food is such a part of our culture! I joined the Army at 17! Served eight years (including during Enduring Freedom after 9/11).
I have had the privilege to give birth to four beautiful daughters! For years I struggled to find my purpose. I was a successful chef for 13 years in the Greater New Orleans area.
I have worked at places such as Commander’s Palace, Bayona, and Mondo, and I had the privilege of working for Chef Paul Prudhomme. I ended my career after being injured on the job at a Gretna Country Club.
It was after healing from this injury that I decided in 2019 to return to college and finish my degree. For years I was fascinated with health and fitness! I was struggling with my self-esteem and weight.
My GPA was so low from dropping out of school in my 20s that no college wanted to give me a chance. Yet Southeastern Louisiana University became my home! I earned my Bachelor of Science in Human Sciences with a concentration in Nutrition and Health Promotion.
It was here that I began to understand how beautiful nutrition and culinary science meld together! My love of food and people has now given me the ability to help others find the wonder and beauty of how food can heal the body! I am also continuing my education with a Master of Science in Health Promotion at the same university.
