Ms. Barbara Troy received her B.S. in Clinical Dietetics in 1976 and her M.S. in Dietetics/Nutrition Education in 1986 from Mount Mary College in Milwaukee. Her first teaching appointment was in the food service program at the Milwaukee Area Technical College. She later taught for 4 years in the Coordinated Program in Dietetics at Mount Mary College and first began teaching at Marquette University in January 1987. In the 1990s she also taught nutrition courses at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (UWM), frequently splitting time between the UWM and Marquette Campus. Eventually her academic load evolved to allow her to teach exclusively at Marquette University, where she teaches courses in normal and therapeutic nutrition for the College of Nursing, College of Health Sciences and the School of Dentistry. Ms. Troy also works as a nutritional consultant in Student Health Service at Marquette University. At Student Health Service, she frequently works with students struggling with weight/Body image issues and with student athletes assisting them in their food selections. Finally Ms. Troy enjoys working for the Journal Sentinel Online where she hosts a popular monthly "nutrition chat".
