Effective today, Shari Steinbach, MS, RDN, joins the RDBA Weekly team as a Contributing Editor. Most recently with Meijer as the Nutrition Manager, Shari managed consumer health communication, community events, nutrition programs, and solution-selling strategies with a team of five other dietitians across 228 stores. Prior to her fourteen years at Meijer, Shari spent thirteen years at Spartan Stores, increasing sales through total store selling strategies, partnering with suppliers, manufacturers, and community organizations, developing recipe and consumer education programs, and acting as a spokesperson on key food and nutrition issues.
As one of the first retail dietitians in the industry, Shari brings to RDBA Weekly a wealth of experience and knowledge. “Since the start of RDBA, Shari has provided valuable insight and organizational guidance as a member of our Advisory Board,” comments RDBA CEO Phil Lempert. “We’re thrilled to have her even more involved, sharing her experience and expertise with all our members.” From managing remote teams to selling programs in to retail executives to effectively tracking and communicating the ROI of retail RD services, Shari has many ideas on how all RDs can be successful in the retail space.
