Personal Biography Statement
Hi! I am Cindy Dormer, Associate Professor in Nutrition at Metropolitan State University of Denver. I am a Registered Dietitian with doctoral and masters degrees in Human Nutrition from Colorado State University and a bachelors degree in Home Economics from Montana State University. I have been teaching at Metropolitan State University of Denver since 2007. I also have experience in energy metabolism research, breast cancer research, motivational interviewing, nutrition policy in early childhood childcare, and weight management. Along with teaching and research, I provide nutrition counseling at the Health Center at Auraria and serve on a number of University and College committees including Faculty Senate. I lead a faculty learning community on student retention and success and I am the Co-Adviser for the student club: Auraria Campus Student Dietetic Association.

As your instructor, I believe it’s my job to provide resources, suggestions, practice and feedback to support your learning and it’s your job to set goals for achieving, to engage with class materials, and to do your best to achieve your goals. Ways I try to do my best for you include:
I’m passionate about both student success and about helping people improve wellness behaviors and overcome problems brought by poor body image. I conduct research on using online learning to facilitate wellness and weight management counseling. I'm a faculty adviser for the Auraria Camps Student Dietetic Association and for Better-Weigh-4-Life (a campus weight management program). Let me know if you’d like to get involved in any of these!
Personal things about me are that I live south of Denver with my daughter, lawyer husband, and a collie-heeler mixed breed running partner. I love running, hiking, skiing, cooking, mountain biking, and, someday when I have more time, I'm going to really get into gardening.
